We are two days away from Christmas and family members can have all kinds of expectations. They will have these high price gifts . And be the ones who didn’t talk to you all year, but yet expect YOU to purchase what they want. The years of creativity has been among us for years with this economy. I know children are expecting all kinds of “things” this year with this technolgoy. I don’t blame them, but my concern is whether or not you appreciate what you are given.

Then there are some single females expecting that engagement ring. I just hope they don’t set themselves up for disappointment.  Howver, I hope you planted the seeds, to reap what you have sown. Familes are expected to spend time together during this holiday season, but believe it or not. Some folks don’t want too. I hope people are dealing with their family issues or challenges because we are never guranteed another day, let alone another season.   How do you gauge the reality of your expectations?  (Listen to the song by XSCAPE: Understanding).

Are our expectations clear ? I truly believe this is the time to be about family and friends.  The season of reconcilation.  Isn’t that’s why He was born in the first place?  I know some family members can be a headache, but (Keep.In.Mind)  that the hardest person to LOVE is the person who need LOVE the most. Let the gift He gave be the example: LOVE more! Happy last minute planning.

I’m Hungry!

The family theme song ……

Do mother’s still cook on Sunday’s? I can remember my grandmother preparing on Saturday. Well, do you at least sit down on Sunday to eat dinner together as a family? I believe it is at the dinner table where families really get to know one another. There is this myth: where people believe just because you live together that everyone knows one another. There are significant events that went on during the week that needs to be shared.

Is eating together costing too much? Meaning too much of your time? Are the children assisting? This was one of my joys when visiting grandma. She use to let me stir the cake batter and I get lick the remains in the bowl. At the table, I got to listen to stories by the adults. I will write, children didn’t have a voice when I was younger. There could have been things I could have revealed, if given the opportunity.

We hear a lot, “the things that comes from the mouth of babes”. If only parents can discern the heart of their children and I’m not saying that parents do not, but let me ask this question. How do you feel about eating together as a family and then if you are a parent, allowing your child to engage in the conversation at the dinner table? Are the conversationFamily Eating Lunch Together around the dinner, child proof? People are hungry for the truth and for genuine relationships. Start at home! Singles can do the same by cooking and inviting people over.
