Imagine living during a time when there were no distractions. A time before TVs, computers and phones. Our main source of entertainment would be the people in our own homes.
Family time would include the whole family. No one would be hiding in their room playing video games. No one would be sitting alone, sending texts on their phones to friends miles away or even to the person right next to them.
In the evenings, spouses would be with each other, instead of being separated by computer screens and TVs. They would appreciate each others’ presence and make eye contact during conversation.
Dinners around the dining table would be a regular occurrence, and no TV would be playing in the background. No one would be staring down at a mobile device. All of the attention would be on those sitting at the table. The family would talk about their day, discuss school and work. They would laugh together.
People would feel loved, cared about and appreciated.
Imagine a time when family still existed.
