Hunger And Gratitude

When did you most recently feel really hungry?

I'm not sure what triggered it, but the last time this happened to me I found myself feeling really grateful. Driving home from teaching and realizing I'd gone without eating for about eight hours, I began thinking about stuff waiting for me in my refrigerator. And in that moment, gratitude for my good fortune filled my thoughts and superseded my hunger. Because soon, I would be home satisfying that hunger.  

In 65+ years, I can't remember ever being hungry for an extended time. You? I resolved in that moment during my drive to be grateful the next time I feel hungry at all - the feeling is not going to last long.
