Personal Notes:
I just thought this was an important thing to add to the book for all of the upcoming generations of young women. When I was growing up, my mama (Arzel), always made sure that all 8 of her children came dressed for dinner. Men had to wear shirts, absolutely NO hats, and we would thank God for our meal. I would do this every night with my 5 children; it is a good time to talk about the day, and fellowship with family. I think this is a very important tradition that helps keep families in touch with each other; it's called "table talk." Whatever is said at the table talk doesn't leave the dinner table.
