...sit at it too.
A lot of us (men and women) are really good at making & setting out meals for our families - and that is a good thing. In fact it is really nice to time to cook (& eat) at home - it brings "meaning" to mealtimes. I remember hearing a phrase that stuck in my head and heart for decades. Once when I went to visit my Dad (of blessed memory) a few years ago, someone saw me and said in a native language - which I'll translate literally and then interprete: "Oh, your Dad must be so happy to have you over so he can eat food cooked with washed hands." Meaning: "Your dad will enjoy food cooked with love." And indeed he did...so did I.
