Generating roots also comes with an aspect of the bitter and the sweet. We lost Luke's dad after a 2 year fight with a rare autoimmune disease. But, we count our blessings for the memories we have from knowing him and the stories we get to tell because of our relationship with him. But we dig roots into the memories of Fred and story tell to the people we love the most about living in relationship with him. That's how we thrive in the messier parts of our theme word of the year: ROOTS.
