The family tree is a well known icon that represents our heritage. With each new generation leaves are added. The leaves are the stories, values, traditions and memories of that generation.As fall comes and winter approaches, the leaves are shed from the tree and fall to the ground. If those leaves are not collected and preserved, they are blown away, forever from our reach.
And so it is with our heritage, rich in story and tradition. If we do not make preserving our heritage and leaving a legacy a priority in our life, how will our children and grandchildren know of the things we value and experiences that touched our lives? How will they know who we really were and what we held close to our heart?
If you don't write your story, who will?
