Mealtime is important in our family - particularly our evening meal.
Ever since our first child was born 6 years ago, we have made it a priority and habit to gather around our table for supper. It is our time to connect daily as a family.
If any one of us were to disappear and sit in front of the computer while the rest of us sat around the table, I would be appalled. Yet I realized that was exactly what I was doing to my girls during breakfast and lunch.
About a month ago I stopped eating my breakfast and lunch in front of the computer and began sitting at the table with my daughters.
Can I tell you what a small step this was? And yet it has made a world of difference in how our day runs.
We talk, we laugh, we pray, we read, we plan....we connect. And not just once during the day, but each time we eat. I have quickly learned to cherish this time that we share at our table.
How do you connect with your loved ones on a daily basis?
