Meals...Bonding Moments

There are many joys in life. One of the joys in life is food! Yes, food can make us really happy for the moment. An example of this is savoring anything chocolate. That is pure delight! However, what is more enjoyable is spending time with either family or friends centered around eating.

Memories and sweet moments are created around a wonderful meal. This can either be at a restaurant, at home, or at a potluck. Sharing meals together bonds family and friends together. This is the time when exciting updates of each other are exchanged or the unloading of sharing the difficulties of life take place. 

Meals together should not be the time when disputes erupt or complaints about each other are brought up. Negative emotions come about and affects everyone's appetite in this way. There is definitely an appropriate time and place to clear the air.

With everyone having busy schedules and multiple responsibilities, it can be difficult at times to eat on a regular basis with family and friends. This is completely understandable. However, because people are very valuable and precious, spending time with the ones that mean the most to us should be given priority in our lives. We may not eat lunch or dinner with family or friends every single day, but making it a point to do our best to eat together as often as we can will be more valuable than achieving our earthly goals and dreams. 

Fine dining is not expensive gourmet meals with a waterfront view. Fine dining is not about the china or silverware that is used to eat the meals with. Fine dining is simply enjoying a good meal with family or friends whether it be at home or at an inexpensive restaurant and just being able to be in each others' presence chatting up good memories. Fine dining is at our reach as often as we want it to be. The choice is up to us to make it happen....or not.

Any favorite family meal memories out there?
