Blessings before meals

I read a blog post today from CNN’s “Belief” blog titled My Faith: How saying a blessing changed my secular family’s meals and wanted to share it. Great message. I especially like the “secular prayer” it includes as a suggestion for a blessing before meals that focuses on thanks and gratitude rather than a specific religious perspective:

Blessings on the blossoms,
Blessing on the fruits,
Blessings on the leaves and stems,
Blessings on the roots,
Loving hands together as we say,
Blessings on our meal,
And our time together.
