Write down every step you can imagine that it takes for the food that you eat today to arrive in your home to nourish you. Count the number of individuals (from farm, to store, to table) who are employed and/or touch your life to make this occur. Pause for a moment before you dine and give thanks.
This is a great meditation to share with children and family members as we reconnect to the miracle of abundant food.
What steps or people were necessary in getting food on your table?
“When you arise in the morning, give thanks for the morning light, for your life and strength. Give thanks for your food, and the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies with yourself.” ~ Tecumseh, Shawnee Chief
