Count your blessings

“Gratitude is a way of looking at the world that does not change the facts of your life, but has the power to make your life more enjoyable,” says Rabbi Harold Kushner.

“Learn to respond to the sun’s coming up every morning as a miracle….Instead of wishing that you felt better physically and could lose weight more easily, marvel at your body’s ability to extract nourishment from food and to heal from illness and injury. Are those not miracles?”

Rabbi Kushner, the author of When Bad Things Happen to Good People, writes about gratitude in his book The Lord Is My Shepherd.
