How little do I need to be happy

I experience immense satisfaction, delight and gratitude in every morsel of food I eat because when I sit down to take my meal, I always imagine that this is the first bite i am going to get after ten days of starving, trapped in a remote dangerous jungle. My mother taught me to apply this attitude to everything I get in life. "Even if it doesn't fill your heart with gratitude to God, it will surely teach you how much there is in life to be grateful for. And you will always have enough to spare for others because you will also know how little is needed for you to be happy." Even after she is gone, I always sit and eat with her by my side.
