I am grateful for food. I am truly blessed to live in a country where there is an abundance of food and I have the means to obtain whatever food I desire. That is indeed fortunate...even amazing...when you consider the alternatives. And while I am thankful, I also have some guilt about it.
As I had my evening treat, some delicious, creamy pecan pie style ice cream from Trader Joe's, I suddenly thought about some of those who may be going to bed hungry or malnurished tonight. It gave me pause. I had intended this to be a light entry in the 28 days. I was gonna go on about my ice cream obession, binges on potato chips and any kind of pie. I do eat lots of fruits, cereals, and vegetables. And that's just it. I do eat lots. To the point of not ever feeling excruciating hunger. Never have. Even as poor as we may have seemed as I was growing up, we never, ever went hungry. There was always food on the table.
So I am grateful for food and need to stop feeling guilty about it. I just need to do something about it. Food is something that feeds the body, comforts the soul and is meant to be shared. And share it I shall. Amen.
