How hard is it for a mother to have a family dinner with the whole intended family present?


A mother just spent 1.5 hours making a wonderful dinner and had it ready on the table to eat. The first phone call was her daughter saying she is studying with her best friend for a test tomorrow. The next phone call was her son saying there is an additional practice the coach wants to hold before the game this weekend. The last phone call was her husband saying his boss needs the report on his desk by eight o'clock tonight, but he hasn't even started on it. It seems that we are all too busy for family time. Do you agree?

    From your description, I would say your mother is a force to be reckoned with. She must be a wonderful person. Count your blessings, because you probably have a close family due to your moms efforts

    You are right. Family is the glue that holds us all together. I think a weekend dinner would provide a specific night to look forward too. Thank you!
