It works, it really does. Try it. I have 151 things on my grateful list. I never thought I would be able to think of five things a day, but then I thought "It's only five things. That's not very many." It isn't very many things, but when you are counting different things everyday, they add up. If you are ever having a bad day, try thinking of all the things you have that others don't. I have realized that I don't need to think of those in Africa, or Guatemala, or North Korea. There are homeless people here in Utah, and some of my neighbors and even some of my family who really struggle every day. There are people I know who don't have a kind and gentle spouse. They have a spouse that they are afraid of.
I am so blessed!!
