Day 9 Journal Exercise: Give thanks for the food on your table.

Do you live to eat, or eat to live? Opinions on food can vary widely, but one thing is certain. On the whole, humans love to make food and eat it.

Write down your relationship with food. Is it love/hate? Do you eat when emotionally triggered? If so, explore your feelings about food through writing.

What foods bring you comfort, and why? Does food equate love for you? Living things nurture one another through feeding. Mothers nourish their young to sustain life.

Is there a certain special dish that evokes memories for you? What types of memories are they? Describe.

This Thanksgiving, if you plan to cook for your family… will food preparation be your drudgery? Or will you revel in it?

Remember all of the people whose lives are made happier when they eat the meals that you lovingly prepare especially for them.

Give thanks for the opportunity to pass on your legacy through treasured family recipes.

Give thanks for the chance to share special moments with loved ones, through the carefully prepared foods you serve each year at Thanksgiving dinner.
