I SPY: Table Talk

Nov 18, 2016

Thanksgiving is coming and I've heard some families have banned politics table talk!  Smart?  Yes I could see the discussions getting very heated.  But I also don't think that we should be pushing it under the rug.  Need to find the middle ground.  We are a community and although divided we need to learn to remain respectful, agree to disagree, but still live in PEACE.  I cannot stress that enough!

I was recently at my sons school book fair.  I came across these books and their message was simple reminders of what I keep preaching.  They're all children's books and thus make really easy short reads, but also makes you think.

Read any?  The Peace Book, reminds us of everyday universal forms of compassion and hope.  Dear Malala, We Stand With You, a support to girls rights and equal opportunity.  The Story Of Ruby Bridges, an encouraging true story about the first African American to attend an all white school in New Orleans.

I picked up a copy of each book for my kids, and also to give all my friends who came to my annual Friends-giving pot luck last night.  Turned out to be a mini book club night!  Sounds nerdy, but actually fun and striked enlightening conversations focused with good vibes.  Try it at your Thanksgiving get togethers to keep the PEACE.
