Grandmother wisely once said:

"The family that eats together
stays together"... so put your
feet under my table anytime
in delicious thankfulness

In these straitened times this is good advice. Perhaps the outcome of all the greed we witness these days will be something more uplifting for us personally.

I appreciate your title and this writing. The waste not is the sharing...if only contemporary families could see the importance of eating calmly...together.

I have been not wasting the fresh strawberries and ice cream each night. I can feel the pounds piling on as I write.

There is a lot to be said about retaining a full grasp on family identity. You brought it out well, Vivian . . .

This is so true Vivian, same with my children I would not tolerate them sitting in front of the Telly eating. We sat at the table and talked about the days events and such it was our time as a family. They grow so quick. My eldest still keeps this tradition, eating at the table with his family, my youngest well... he and his wife have different schedules :)

Thank you for posting this, it is so true

Love and Light
