“If you’re looking for new prayers to enliven an old tradition, try this.” – USA Today

"What better time to practice gratitude than before eating! This carefully compiled little book builds on the traditional recitation of grace before a meal with a collection of short musings, from diverse sources, meant to focus our attention on things profound and simple. The writings come from traditional religious sources, from philosophers and poets, and from every day people. They are 365 “soft whisperings from the heart” intended to bring your customers daily joy." –Anna Jedrziewski, Retailing Insight (formerly New Age Retailer), October 2013
"Gratitude is Heaven itself" -- William Blake

No matter what our spiritual orientation, one of our most universal customs is pausing before the evening meal to acknowledge the small and large things that make life meaningful. A collection of 365 blessings both traditional and new, organized by season.
