Dinner Time

It will get better

"Shut up and eat it."

We all laughed. It was the last family gathering, And it was still funny. After all these years.

Still funny.

It could easily be bitter. 

But no. No. We all understood the reasons behind the words.

As do our kids today. 

They have heard the same words growing up and still understand. More and more each day.

To be wondering where the money will come from. To feed a family. The hardships one must live through must be understood.

And "shut up and eat it" must be understood. 

It was all there was, my dears.
