Monday Morning Grace

“Saying grace invites you to just be present: See the color of the radish on your salad, smell the soap on your hands, notice the texture of the tablecloth, and hear your own, or your own child’s, breathing. Even in as mundane a moment as this, the astonishing richness of human life is laid before you. If you are safe from danger, sheltered from the elements, and not alone, grace gives you a chance, crucial moment in which to know it.”

Excerpt from “How To Say Grace” by Kate Braestrup in the November 2012 issue of Real Simple.
