  1. I also like the lists. Gratitude lists are a day to day tool used in Alcoholics Anonymous.
    I was in a meeting with a seventy year old lady one time who told about awaking feeling blue, the bad kind, the sombers that had no cause. She said she was determined not to get out of bed until she could think of some reason to be grateful.
    After some minutes, it came to her. She was grateful that she wasn’t pregnant.
    Her name was Margarite. Right now I feel grateful that I knew such a charming, kind and funny lady.
