Gratitude for the Manifold Blessings

Food is our most fundamental material blessing.
Use each meal as an opportunity to feel gratitude for all the blessings of this life.
– Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Gratitude is an attitude that hooks us up to our source of supply.
And the more grateful you are, the closer you become to your maker,
to the architect of the universe, to the spiritual core of your being.
– Bob Proctor

I give thanks for the blessings of this food
as a symbol of my gratitude
for all the manifold blessings of this life.
– Jonathan Lockwood Huie

It is the common, everyday blessings of our common everyday lives
for which we should be particularly grateful.
They are the things that fill our lives with comfort and our hearts with gladness —
just the pure air to breathe and the strength to breath it;
just warmth and shelter and home folks;
just plain food that gives us strength; bright sunshine on a cold day;
and a cool breeze when the day is warm.
– Laura Ingalls Wilder
