    One year at a Christmas family gathering, we used a plastic ketchup bottle to play our version of the old “Spin the Bottle” game. Someone would spin the bottle. Then, when it stopped, the spinner would say one thing he or she appreciated or loved about the person to whom the bottle pointed. (We had to limit it to ONE thing because some people would get carried away.) Like your family, tears sometimes flowed. The person to whom the bottle pointed would then become the spinner. We made sure that everyone had a turn. It was a hit with everyone – young & old!

    What a wonderful idea! I think that I may try to put this in our nightly routine before Prayers. My son can sometimes be a little negative about things so this might help him think of good things. i might need to make a rule that it can’t be a good thing about his video games though lol!
