The Centerpiece of My Family
I am thankful for every meal we eat, sitting around the table as a family. Great conversations happen when we’re together, and we find out what happened with each family member that particular day. We laugh, we sometimes cry, we relax as we talk about the challenges and victories we have been facing. Sometimes our dining room table is not only the meeting place for family meals, but also the centerpiece of family game night. Our family of four gathers around the Monopoly game board in a heated competition. The boys may be little, but they are already fiercely competitive. Knowledge is gained and lessons are learned the game table. Other times, I sit down with the boys to do some drawing, painting, and just plain doodling. The kid in me comes out when I get scented markers and crayons in my hands. I really do love doing art and craft projects with the boys, spending time connecting with them in such a simple way. I don’t think our family is alone in gathering so often, and for so many reasons, around the Carriage House Timber Frame Barnwood Dining Table. For that reason, that table should be sturdy and secure. It should be of a quality that encourages longevity so it will be the centerpiece of the family for a few generations. The next time you gather around the dining room table with your family, take a look around and give thanks for that moment. They can be so precious, yet fleeting. Cheers to you and your family!
