The power of the Silent Thank You

This morning I was cutting up my grapefruit, and I was thinking about how much I love it. It reminds me of being a kid and having it cut up for me by my mom before school, it’s delicious, it’s refreshing, and it’s good for me.

And then it happened – in my head I said, “Thank you, Grapefruit. Thank you for being gluten free.”

And it was awesome!

I realize I do that with other foods too, but there is definite power in the Silent Thank You. For all of the time that we spend thinking of what we can’t eat, it’s important to take time to show some gratitude for the foods we can.

I’m hereby instituting the Silent Thank You as a habit in my life.

I hope you do too 🙂
