Grace

Before a meal (even breakfast) our daughter usually insists that we grab hands around the table and say in unison,

We love our family. Amen

We started it when getting everyone to go around and say they love each member of the family got too painful (e.g. one boy would intentionally skip his brother causing the other to kvetch for the rest of the meal).

After we say our short grace we lift our glasses and loudly say,

Cheers!

I hope you are surrounded by love and cheers today.

My grandfather used to have a great grace - I can't recall all the words but I remember it ending with "good god, let's eat!". Happy Thanksgiving to you!
