I’ve just arrived home from the grocery store and I have all kinds
of wonderful food to unpack. And I realized as I’ve done many times in
the past—I had been complaining:
“Oh I have to go grocery shopping. I don’t feel like shopping.
I’ll have to put all this stuff away and I have SO much to do.”
Then I stopped myself, and felt ashamed. I thought of all the people
who don’t have enough to eat, do not have food in the world—even in my
own community! Possibly in the same block as the wonderful grocery
store packed with food, so many things to choose from, anything and
everything you could want.
I stopped myself and decided to be very grateful—grateful for groceries--
because it is a privilege to be able to go into a grocery store and come home
with an abundance of food. How many people wish they could do that?
So, if you’ve ever complained about shopping, forgive yourself, and choose
to be grateful each and every time you unpack groceries and pack your fridge.
Are you grateful for groceries?
I certainly am!
Thank you for being part of our community!

Our church congregation contributes to the local food bank where I have had a few conversations with the volunteers there when I make our monetary and grocery item donations. Little is much if you don;t have anything else!!
