13. Encourages family table time and conversation
I know I skip a few. My laptop went boom and I just decide to start here.
We use to most nights eat at the table. I don’t know what happened. Sadly we have gotten away from them and I feel how it has affected our family. Normally lately it is piled high with everyone’s stuff. We are normally running to ball games or meetings or running kids here or there. We lost our family table time and this has hurt our family.
They say that families that eat together have better grades in school, communicate better with parents, eat healthier. A few years ago, ok many years ago, I wrote a skit for a Sr. High gathering up in Ohio. It was “The Three Tables.” The family table, the youth room coffee table and the Lord’s table. I truly feel you keep your family around the family and Lord’s table you can keep things pretty grounded!
In our family we were suffering with the family table. Two days ago I decided enough was enough. I wanted my table back again! It got cleaned and found a few other things to put on it. I did this so all summer long my kids and I can sit and talk about different things.
The Really Wooly Cards I found at our Christian book store and they were made by DaySpring. I am a sucker for those cute sheep! So I was thrilled when I saw them!
