Easy Meal-time Celebrations

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?
