Meals are so much more

“The most remarkable thing about my mother is that for thirty years she served the family nothing but leftovers. The original meal has never been found.” _Calvin Trillin


Notes from my personal journal for July 16, 2022

What delighted me about today? Answer: Sitting at my parent’s table and enjoying breakfast with mom and dad and Sonja and also lunch with our dear friends Tom and Cathy Gillum.

Lesson Learned from the day: Meals for humans are more than just getting nourishment.  They are a social affair that feeds the soul as well as the stomach.  To miss too many of these types of meals is to starve the soul. 

The ONE THING for today: When planning your meals for today, don’t just plan to eat, plan to eat with someone you love.
