Want to make meal-time at your house special? Here are some fun ideas to make these simple times a celebration!
Set the table - nice dishes? candles? a single flower? fun napkins? Doesn't have to be fancy - just special. (We incorporate this one at our house - even a frozen pizza can seem like a special meal!)
Join hands for meal-time prayers. It's a sign of unity for the family circle. And when the prayer is over... give a round of applause to the cook! (As a simple appreciation for his or her efforts.)
Say a simple prayer - thanking God for the blessings you have been given.
Talk about your day as you eat - maybe ask each person for a high and low they experienced that day. This is a great way to celebrate the "highs" together - and show encouragement and support for each other's "lows."
There's lots of ways to celebrate at meal-time - what do you do?
