Sometimes it is difficult to be grateful. You may feel like you have nothing to be grateful for. You can start really small with things like I am grateful my toilet works. I know that sounds strange but if you have ever had a sewage flood in your house (like I have) you would be very grateful for a working toilet! 😉
