For Thanksgiving from the Buddha

Wisdom from the Buddha for Thanksgiving:

Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn't learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn't learn a little, at least we didn't get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn't die; so, let us all be thankful.

From the Daily Buddha:

Earth, water, sun and air, all live in this food I prepare. I feel gratitude for my food and all those beings involved in bringing it to my table. I prepare the meal with love, understanding and compassion, knowing these feelings will nourish those I feed.
