Today I am grateful for all the over full grocery stores.
We complain a lot about the junk food available to tempt us, but how many people would be so happy to be able to go to a grocery store and buy wholesome,fresh foods for their family?
I can go any day,all year round and buy fresh fruits and vegetables that I did not even have to work the soil for, plant, weed in the hot sun, fight bugs and pests and hurt my back picking.
I just pick the nicest ones,put them in my basket and bring them home to enjoy.
And I discovered something that I had heard before but not really tried.
If I go do the groceries on a full stomach,I won't be as tempted to buy junk food.
If I don't buy junk food, I won't be able to eat it when I'm bored.
I was heard saying last week "whose bright idea was it not to buy any junk food anyways!!!" with an exasperated voice.
So, if i'm going to spend my hard earned money on food, why don't I buy food that somebody worked hard to pick for me and that will really nourish me?
Food for thought!
