Sharing a morning moment of peace and silence in my day. 🙂
The habit of saying grace before food, a chance for a quiet moment of simple gratitude, humility and mindfulness seems far less common these days. A loss I feel.
You’re right. Very rare these days. I’m usually mindful of the source of the food on the table and give a silent thanks – like thanking the salmon for giving its life for my own sustenance. Learned this from reading about many indigenous practices around the world. When we realize our oneness with all-life we do become more reverent and thankful for our daily bread. Thank you, Ben, for your own wisdom in that regard.
