More Laughter. Less Business
Sunday evenings we have a family meeting. We discuss the family schedule for the week, mention good things members of the family did for us, and have a spiritual lesson. And as we chat, every time, never fails, the meeting goes off the rails into some giggle fit, or someone changing the subject, or trying to tell a joke, and the working father in me, the one who spends all day in meetings, feels the need to get this sucker back on the agenda.
So I try to make it work. I ask the family to calm down, settle down, stay focused, so we can talk about the importance of the meeting and the schedule, and blah blah. And naturally, there is an eventual argument over calming down, and I am left to wonder if we should even hold these meetings because they almost always end in arguments.
