Father, I am thankful for food

Heavenly Father, I am thankful for ...

Most of us, if not at every meal, offer words of thanksgiving when all the family is gathered for a holiday meal. Besides being thankful for the loved ones gathered there, what is on your list of God-given blessings?

We usually give thanks for the food, which, at my house is in abundance. When thanking God for this wonderfully prepared dinner, do I take time to consider what a blessing it is? Rarely, if ever, have I missed a meal and I have never been hungry after a meal. When I have a small meal - usually when I'm dieting - there is still more than enough to meet my nutritional needs.
Stories from returning missionaries break my heart.
There are families in this world who must share one cup of rice for their one meal of the day. There are children who are asked to suck on a stone in order to banish hunger pains.
