Food for thought: Food is what brings my family together

I have always had fond memories of food throughout my life. Food is what brings my family together. Our family may have it's kinks and bumps,and we may squabble over the little things,but when it comes to food, we are able to come together and be joyful. When we eat,we are always sitting with one another whenever at the dining table. We will talk about our day,ask each other questions,and tell each other about something new we had learned that day. It's always relaxing,and considering that we always cook our own food, the aroma of our meals are always drafting around the house, providing a comfortable setting.This is especially true for the holidays. Everyone,even the extended family,will join together to talk,laugh,and eat. Theirs never a tense moment as we sit with one another,talking between bites. We'll tease each other a lot, recall happy memories,or even make new ones as we sit there. It's a truly blissful experience,and I'm so amazed by the powers that food seems to have. It's what brings and keeps my family together.
