Luke has been asking about the different meat that we eat at meal time. It is curiosity for sure, but I cant help but feel like he is a bit concerned about eating all those animals. Mom had the where with all to tell him that one of the reasons we say grace is to thank all those animals who gave their life for our nourishment. (did you know that there are more chickens on the planet earth than any other bird?)
This made me think we should design a new grace, something that specifically includes a thanks to those animals.
It also made mom and me wonder if we should cut down on the meat intake in general? Not that we eat in inordinate amount of meat and I think it is avery important part of a growing person diet, but it is, to catch a phrase, food for thought.
