I was challenged to celebrate MY heritage this week on a LO....well, I don't HAVE a heritage!
Heck I barely know about my blood ties, or I try not to anyways LOL
I was always told I was German and Indian (who knows which one) and Scandinavian? So I say American MUTT!? I have no clue! But my name is french LOL
So instead I celebrated the Legacy I will leave my children.
Which is that Family means EVERYTHING!
I grew up that family meant...dog eat dog...if your not the strongest you don't survive and you abuse anyone weaker. Or emotionally hurt them until they break. Well with 6 kids, most of us broke....some didn't and some did but in the greater sense we all broke eventually because we all have to or had to deal with our past and how to fix it and be normal humans in the real world.
So I want My kids to have the OPPOSITE experience!
Family means EVERYTHING! and you never turn your back on your family....and you stay true.
Our traditions may not be traditional always, we might spend Easter at the BEACH! but we are a family and if we are together, nothing else matters.
