One way is to share with our children their stories and help them develop strong relationships with them.

A simple way we can do that is to look through family pictures and reminisce old memories or share stories that our children didn’t know.

It was sweet hearing their little ones talk about what they remembered about the moments caught in the pictures.

Or just seeing them light up as they pointed and shouted, “Grandma!”

Or, “Why isn’t Grandma wearing gloves in the snow?”

Then hearing the explanation that since Grandma was from Madagascar she was too excited to see snow for the first time that she didn’t think to wear any gloves.

Pictures and stories are perfect for closing the gap of distance and time and affirming sweet and tender memories.

They won’t be little enough for dad to hold them high in the air with one hand for too much longer.

The sabbath is the perfect time for reflecting on past memories and making new ones. And of course, letting our families know we are thinking of them.
