Feeling overwhelmed and blessed

This month I have 3 great grandchildren’s birthdays. 1 grandson, and my wonderful daughters birthday 5 days later.

Let’s face it that is a lot. Gifts, party’s, shopping. You get the picture.
At this time in my life I am more interested in making memories with my family. I want them to remember me when I am gone by things we did together.  It came to me last night that I really want them to know that they have a Jewish great grandmother. My grandchildren are aware, but they have intermarried and I am afraid their heritage, their Jewish great grandmother and the culture will be lost to them. Will it all end with me?  I know my children will continue traditions as they see fit. Not quite the same as having a Bubbe.

What are the greatest gifts we can bestow upon our offspring. Traditions, culture, family values. It sounds old fashion, but the truth is that is what endures. We can leave money, houses, bonds, all sorts of material things. All that can be lost, broken, taken. They can also br replaced. What can’t be replaced are experiences, traditions, values, memories.

I am overwhelmed with the significance of my life. The amazing gifts of having my family. We are four generations. I am grateful for all of it.

What counts in your life? What are you grateful for? What do you want to preserve, pass on?
Think about all of this and write it down.

Blessings and love, Malka
