About this time last year Peggy was planning her families Thanksgiving celebration. She was rushing around wondering what kind of activity the whole family could do together.
Peggy’s family has 4 generations to keep content! She talked to me about the Love Box tradition and she decided to alter it to fit their families needs.
As their family gathered for Thanksgiving she asked each member to go into her bedroom and write a love note or note of appreciation to her mom, Mom Helen, who is also a grandma and great-grandma. Each member of the family also took love notes home to write for each other before their Christmas celebration.
Peggy gathered all the love notes for Mom Helen and put them in the Christmas Love Box. She wrapped it up beautifully and gave the ‘gift of love’ to her Mom.
“We found my mom in tears as she read and re-read the love notes which she keeps on the end table near her sofa.” Peggy said.
Mom Helen has read the love notes all year long and each time, prays for each person. This keeps her connected to her whole family throughout the year.
Talk about a gift full of thanks and giving and it lasts for generations to come.
