If I could pick which meal is my favorite of the day I would have to say dinner, or supper as it’s sometimes called. While I love having a lunch with friends, dinner has a power that draws me in even more – my family. When all six of us are gathered around the table for a meal, there’s upbeat conversation and laughter, teaching moments, times of sharing, and sometimes tears. We enjoy the food, but we enjoy each other’s company and connecting with one another even more. My kids may think differently, after all that would mean admitting to enjoying their sibling’s company. But in years to come I am sure they will look back at these times with great fondness and remember how powerful family dinners can be.
