Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"What better time to practice gratitude than before eating! This carefully compiled little book builds on the traditional recitation of grace before a meal with a collection of short musings, from diverse sources, meant to focus our attention on things profound and simple. The writings come from traditional religious sources, from philosophers and poets, and from every day people. They are 365 "soft whisperings from the heart" intended to bring your customers daily joy." -Anna Jedrziewski, Retailing Insight (formerly New Age Retailer), October 2013
