My family has a special tradition that has been around for many generations. It started with my great-great aunt, Christine.
When a family member has a special event or has done something outstanding a red plate will be placed before him or her to use. It is a ruby red plate that is absolutely beautiful.
This tradition created so many wonderful memories growing up. Anytime the red plate was set on the table I was excited to see who was going to receive it.
Recently I was able to share the red plate with Rodney. I feel blessed that I am going to be able to continue this tradition with my new family, and I hope it will continue on for many generations.
