Today I went to the grocery store. Every time I am in the store, I am in awe of all the abundance available. That I live in a world, country, state, city, and community that overflows with foods of all kinds and varieties humbles me. This is such a precious gift that I take for granted at times. When I think about the vast majority of people in the world who do not live with this level of abundance, I give great, great thanks that I do. Keeping myself aware with gratitude of all of the abundance I have is one of my goals.
Abundance comes in many forms, but having food to eat is of major importance. I do not waste food. If I have leftovers at a restaurant, I bring them home, including any bread, chips, or anything else that I know will be thrown away. I eat it all, adding something to it or it to something, or heating bread with butter and chips with cheese under the broiler to freshen them up and make them tasty.
I say a prayer that the leftover food will be used in some way to benefit All That Is.
Reggie never leaves any food, or even the smell of food, as he licks his bowl or the plate clean. He has the “waste not, want not” and gratitude down pat, as he wags his tail rapidly when he get any food. Nancy and Reggie♥
