Ron: Hmmm. Second wife, first ornaments.

Announcer: For FamilyLife Blended®, here’s Ron Deal.

Ron: For blended families, along with the good of holiday traditions, comes resurrected grief and reminders to new stepfamily members that they weren’t first. For example, what does a second wife do with ornaments that say “First Christmas” or “Mommy” on them?

Laura Petherbridge in her stepfamily devotional, Seeking a Silent Night suggests asking your husband and stepchildren what they want to do with them. Maybe get a little tree for kids to put in their bedroom with all of their special “Mom” ornaments or save them until they get older. By honoring their memories and relationship with their mom, you honor them. And that’s a true Christmas gift. For FamilyLife Blended, I’m Ron Deal.
