That brings me to the next paragraph of counting my blessings. This is on of those instructions from my mother that still hangs around. I have a tendency to get into a funk and start feeling sorry for myself. Mom was constantly reminding me to count my blessings. Even Oprah had a run where she was encouraging people to journal about 5 positive things a day. She called it the gratitude journal. I did it for a while and it did add a different perspective to my life. I follow a blogger named Ali who puts a list of 'praises' and 'prayers' at the end of her journal entries. It certainly sums up a day in the life of a person. I think I'll try it. I'll call it my blessings for now.
