As the cost of food rises, I find it helpful to remind myself how lucky we are just to have the abundance of food that we do have. Yes, food is more expensive. Yes, many of us are finding it more difficult to splurge on the goodies we enjoy most. On the other hand, we never have to worry that we can't afford the basics just to keep ourselves fed.
A while ago I was reading an article about food shortages around the world and I was moved, imagining the physical and emotional ache of not having enough to eat and trying to keep your family fed. What torture it would be to see your child go hungry. It makes me so thankful for our supermarkets filled with food.
