Saying thank you helps you to be mindful of who you are and what you have within the greater context of things. If you are a parent, I urge you to practice the expression of gratitude with your children so that they will develop a sense of appreciation for the blessings that life has offered them.
Expressing gratitude gives us a chance to slow down and calm our minds before a meal, preparing our bodies to receive nourishment. When you are calm, you will feel more satisfied after your meal and your digestion will be better.
Here’s a thank you to all the farmers, the distributors, the stores and the cook who prepares the meal. And a very special thank you to those who do the clean-up!
|Isaiah gives thanks.|
