SUZI: Quickly Thankful

As much as possible, Scott and I say grace before we eat.  (Sometimes this consists of a quick “Thank you, Jesus” as we shove some food item in our mouth while we chase after Cooper.)  I’ve realized the small beauty in this simple act.  There’s something about stopping and taking a moment to be thankful for what you have…that you even have food to eat…that you have a choice of food to eat…that you have a pantry full of food.  There’s grace that comes when you acknowledge there’s more to a meal than just food to consume.  It is acknowledging that another day of your needs have been met and that someone had to work to prepare the food for you to eat.  It is a brief moment of thanksgiving that makes a meal fuller and richer.
