In today's chaotic world, the common experience of sharing the evening meal can restore a sense of community and humanity to society. More important, the blessing of the meal fosters in us a sense of gratitude for the gifts we have been given. This collection of 365 "blessings"-ranging from the words of Augustine and Buddhist monk Thich Nhat Hanh to the Beatles' now famous "In the end the love you take/ is equal to the love you make"-celebrates the connections between grace and gratitude. To aid readers in selecting a grace appropriate to the occasion, there is a topical index as well as divisions marked by seasons of the year. The book will have wide appeal because it traverses all spiritual traditions. For general collections.

"If you're looking for new prayers to enliven an old tradition, try this." - USA Today--Reviews
"What better time to practice gratitude than before eating! This carefully compiled little book builds on the traditional recitation of grace before a meal with a collection of short musings, from diverse sources, meant to focus our attention on things profound and simple. The writings come from traditional religious sources, from philosophers and poets, and from every day people. They are 365 "soft whisperings from the heart" intended to bring your customers daily joy." -Anna Jedrziewski, Retailing Insight (formerly New Age Retailer), October 2013--Reviews
