Family meals bring health

Today is a snow day in Monument. I am going to hibernate today in my room and sip tea and coffee and try to restore. All of us have to take in as much as we give out, so with a good book and sleep and music and time to ponder, I think I will be back in the routine tomorrow. Writing about home, family, real meals, real conversation has been a mantra of mine for many years. I was interested to find this article that talks about real meals as a part of better health for asthmatics, but it also has great points for all families--no cell phones, no tv, gentle correction, atmosphere. I love it when research validates what I have always believed, don't you.

So tonight, put on soothing music, light some candles, no media allowed and talk and appreciate and give life-giving words to all who are present, and preserve health in your family.

I am going to hide! :)
