My Gratitude list
Most of us are grateful for many things in our life. Here are 20 of mine right off the top of my head. I'm sure you can think of many more as you consider the meaning of your life and how all these things helped you to heal from your grief.
Keep your list going and add new entries for your gratitude list day after day.
