The optimist expects it to change.
The leader adjusts the sails.”

Gratefulness

Gratefulness

A prayer for the  Thanksgiving dinner table or any day.
“This food is a gift of the entire universe — the Earth, the Sun, and much hard work. May we live in a way that makes us worthy to receive it. May we be mindful of our actions and the effect we have on others, and may we be grateful for all that we have.”

From a  retreat weekend with Thich Nhat Hahn
Thanks to former MSI board member John Herrington for supplying this prayer.
