Family- You Only Get One

A Family Who Eats Together Stays Together

My whole life, my family has always had supper together. Everyone from my father, the head of the household, to my baby sister. We all sit and have supper together. It's the only time my mom could get us all to be under her roof and to fellowship together. It was the one time during the day that I could spend with my parents and siblings with little to no interruptions. It was a time that our parents devoted to spending time with just us kids. I learned a lot about family because of eating with mine.

I learned that my dad has a dry sense of humor which usually involve sewer waste and pastor jokes as well as sarcastic comments. I learned what the latest kid project my mom is working on.

I have learned that Ben my youngest brother has a great sense of humor and he has shot me with a nerf gun a time or two while eating.

I have learned more about math and science from my other brother Caleb who is a tech-savvy guy. And yes, he does help me with computer troubles since I am simply hopeless.

I have learned from Joy that there is always someone who will help you become humble.

All of this I have learned while simply eating and enjoying a meal together. Most importantly though my family has taught me that family is important. You only get one family and each family I have met are different and quirky in their own way. I have learned that through family love is given freely with no price. My family eats together to know the ups and downs of each of our lives. This is why my family eats together daily.
