Gospel Message Day 279

Gratitude, Part 3

Why is gratitude such a favorite subject of mine? Over my few years I have had my own tailored-to-me sufferings. And there were (and still are) often times when I felt low, discouraged, and wanting to give up from frustration, tiredness, and sorrow. But such a state will not help anybody, especially me in my progression. With time, scripture study, and many talks from Church leaders, I came to learn the importance of gratitude. But it took many years to cultivate that habit/skill. It's how my Pollyanna way of life came about! Tomorrow, with (hopefully) more time, I want to explain some of the trials I've had to face, and the ways I've discovered gratitude in each case. Then you can see the Pollyanna-ing in more specific action.
