I created this when my sons were little to acknowledge all aspects of eating– to honor the food that was about to nourish us, the beings who toiled to bring it to us, and the forces of nature that make it all possible.
Thank you earth, wind, fire and water
for bringing this food to our table.
Thank you to the beings who gave their life and time
to bring this food to our table.
May it nourish our souls
as well as our bodies,
as we eat in gratitude and in peace.
