How is the Pay It Forward Challenge Going?
Have you put your cell phones away when you are in the company of others?

This is NOT good family time.


Why go out and eat if you are going to talk /text on the phone while you are there?
You are missing a great opportunity to simply have fun.
So the  MONTH’S ONGOING  CHALLENGE CONTINUES:
To work on NOT having the cell phone on
and at the table during meal times.
If it must be on, put it on a counter AWAY from the table.

This Weeks  NEW Challenge Is TWO – FOLD.
1. Eat your  meals together.
If not all of them, then at least one meal a day.
2. To Say Grace at least at one meal a day.
Say it together. Say it silently. Say it.


Teach your kids to thank God/ Jesus for the blessings you receive.


Dear Lord,
Thank you for the food we are about to eat. ……

Do I say prayers at meal times?
Honestly, Not as much as I should.
If I eat in the kitchen, yes I do.
Danny and I seldom eat together any more.
I usually don’t eat breakfast so Danny eats his in the computer room.

Do we eat lunch together….It depends on if he is already on the computer. Usually he is.
Danny will eat dinner/supper at the table . I usually sit with him. He will eat RIGHT before going to bed. Midnight and later

Our family always ate together. So did Bobby and I. Always.
Come Lord Jesus,
Be Our Guest.

You can eat your meal anywhere as long as you eat together.

Has anyone had a CLEANUP PARTY at the beach or park?

What about Telling Your Husband/Wife
that you love them?

I’ve said it once.
It was hard for me to say it.
Once it was so easy.

It is easier for me to show it.

Have you told your children how much you love them?

What about writing a Letter?

    My parents and I always ate dinner together, at the table, with conversation. We still do when we are together…no phones at dinner. 🙂

    1. Heather, Oh the conversations we had at the table. We would talk about anything and everything.
      I have a girl friend who came over all the time. Her parents were 40 years older than she was . Her brothers 20 Plus Years and out of the house before she was even born.
      Our conversations were a surprise to her. Her face got red all the time.
      Yet, she loved our house.
      My son and I always ate together.
      We had fun.
