Spiritual Matters: Grateful for Gratitude

If you use your journal like I do, you use it for everything, scribbling down various thoughts, desires, heartaches, happenings, and everything in between, including action items and gratitude lists. Let’s focus on this last one: gratitude lists.

Upon sharing my issue, the resulting recommendation was to come up with a list of ten things I was grateful for, and even more specifically, the items had to come from the day that had just passed.

But I tried it anyway.
