Earth who gives to us our food . . .

The other day someone asked me if we say a blessing at our mealtimes. Most of the time we do. We all hold hands and make sure we make eye contact with everyone in the group while we say the following blessing (adapted from Seven Times the Sun)

Earth who gives to us our food,
Sun who makes it ripe and good,
Dearest Earth and dearest Sun,
Joy and love for all you've done.
For life and food we give thanks,
Hurray! (We throw our hands in the air. Evie started that tradition as a baby.)

We are reading this book. Everyone should read this book.
