At our home, we celebrate the passing of time with birthday celebrations. Not fancy. Not big to-do’s. Just simple family dinners ending with cake and a song.
But it’s this little tradition that we’ve all come to love — the cake with the askew candles placed by a granddaughter, some off-key singing, and then the make-a-wish-and-blow-out-the-candles routine. All with a little assistance, of course.
In the big scheme of things, perhaps, there may not be a better way to celebrate time than with the traditions of family.
