Family Reflections

Today's reflection is about family time. I know it's difficult to get all the family together when everyone is working various shifts, but the task is worth the fight.

Family meals and discussions are vital to a healthy relationship amongst the members. Sometimes, it pays to shut the television off, turn off all the electronic gadgets, including the phone, and sit down for supper with your family. Take a day out of the week and visit with one another, sincerely inquiring about daily happenings.

Our families are disconnecting and it saddens me. But we can do something about it. Even if it doesn't quite work the way you planned the first few times, keep trying. Don't give up on building a close knit family unit.
