Those were the days when dining tables used to have a lot of importance and used to be as large as that used by Jesus and his Apostles. We had that sized table as we were a huge number. There was a ritual to say prayers and all of us sat together for the night meal as father went to work and was only available for the night meal. Every one talked about how their day went.
These days it is a different story. Not only is the family small each one has a different time to eat and for that matter a different place to sit for the meal. Some sit in front of the tv, some in their bed room, and some in front of the pc.
That scene that is seen in the photo is rare which at best is seen during Thanksgiving or when there are house guests
Does this happen around you?
