This is the tray I prepared, with little tea light candles from Bali. They were a gift and had been waiting for a special occasion.
What's going to happen?
First we must set to work on our feast.
My daughter-in-law held up a Chinese story book about new year, and translated it for us. It was very touching. Her Chinese friend told about growing up in West China, where it was very cold, but excellent for fruit growing. The melons were big and juicy and everyone had big melons stored under their beds over winter. They would sit and eat melons around the fire.
My son told a touching story of finding love, and I told a story about lost and found, which I will share with you next time.
Our family is increasing as we embrace other small families and build our traditions together.
