In a day we may say thank you ten to twenty times as easily as we say hello or goodbye. But to truly receive and give thanks for our daily bread we must give more than words; we must recognize how many are the givers.

Countless hands have been at work for us to have what is on our plates. In a simple sandwich lies the farmer’s toil, the miller’s craft, the packager’s care, the trucker’s long drive, the delivery man’s round, the sweat of the grocery stock boy, the checkout girl’s weariness, not to speak of the cook’s efforts...
