Families need to rebuild the family table; Where familes come to gether to sit down and eat; Where families sit down and talk;
Where families come to gether to break bread together;
Cooking is suppose to be in every woman. If you have kids people think you should know how to cook.
I think the happiness moments in a family live should be around the kitchen table; Where else is all your troubles parked at the door? How many people argue while they eat. Lets bring back dinner together for all the families in American. I know its a hard task special when people work. Try working one night a week into family dinner time together.
My greatest influence of my life was my native american indian grandmother; I grew up with her and I never ate with my african american family. We would be called to the table and we knew how to sit with our elbows off the table and napkin in our lap.
We were prepared to eat what was placed in front of us and enjoy the meal; Nana would talk and we would eat and listen. We had milk or ice tea to drink and never soda; No one used cuss words and no one argued with one another. It was pleasant time and we learn a little bit more about one another; There was no television on to distract our attention from the dinner table.
We were satisfied for any portion of food we had. We had fresh food and not frozen food and we were health and happy. Nana always had a apron on and she was just a jolly happy soul. We always felt like this was special occasion and I look forward to every meal with Nana.
In my childhood I had no cares in the world and I was able to content with my life. People today rush and eat standing up and eat at fast food places and they call that food: There too much spending money in fast food places and what about healthy food. Where a loved one cut up and cooked the food in the pot. People wonder why they are sick and there children are sick; Do you know the person cooking for you in that restaurant. Can you talk freely to your love one in a crowded restaurant. After dinner we all would clean the kitchen up and wash all the dish’s and pots. We would dry the dishes and pots and put them up the cabinets. we sat down after together at the table and still talk and eat ice cream or cake together.
We never were rushed and we never were sick. We were sharing the chores and sharing our ideas thoughts and hearts with one another.
Bring back the family meal together in your kitchen and find out how much your family has to tell you.
