The holidays are a very spirited time filled with family gatherings and traditions. However, it’s worth recognizing that this can be a tough time of year for so many people as those traditions serve as reminders of our loved ones lost.
As usual, we’ve been waiting all year for the holiday model train exhibits and we hit the circuit right away visiting the Science Museum of Virginia the day after Thanksgiving and spending hours skipping from one train to another. My Dad came along with us and he was like a kid again seeing all of the equipment and making conversation with the exhibitors. One of them replied to him “...we’re all just big kids”. The holidays seem to bring out the kid in all of us.
My Dad talked about the train he had as a kid and we told him about the train that we had in our basement that belonged to my husband’s Grandfather. The next day we set that train up on the dining room table and the kids were in awe. When I took a video of it and shared it with friends and family, so many people connected with it. That train connected too many generations to count. This holiday season I hope you can take the time to connect and share special traditions and no matter what reminder they hold, may they bring you peace and happiness.
