Several Aussie couples were recently asked who they would choose to have dinner with, dead or alive, if they could have dinner with anyone. Their children were then asked the same question. See how it went at the following link:
I have to admit, if I had to answer this question, I would probably choose my parents, both of whom have been gone for many years. Or, I might choose my wife’s natural mother who died before I even met my wife. Watching this short video throws a whole new perspective on that question, though.
Sometimes we think we owe so much time to so many others. We cram our days with work, workouts, meetings, deadlines, pick-up/drop-off times, etc. And, most homes have days when you just grab whatever you can for dinner. I would offer a bet that if our own children or grandchildren were asked the same question, they would answer the same way the children in the video answered. All kids primarily want out of us is our time. They may have desires and wants, but when it comes down to crunch-time, we are the most important people in their lives.
So, in case you have forgotten, think about this today. Making dinnertime together a priority was always important in our own home and many of our family’s favorite memories still revolve around those dinnertime discussions. Just “food” for thought today.
Have a fabulous day! And, remember why you do what you do and who you do it for as you go about your daily activities today.
