My mental health worker told me that I should keep a gratitude journal, at the end of each day listing all the good things that have happened to me.

I told her, “But I already do that. I thank God every day for what He has given me and what He has done for me.”

“But I don’t mean doing it in a religious way,” she said.

I didn’t have a quick answer for her, though I was flabbergasted. Since when does thanking God not count as good healthy gratitude?

Isn’t it better to know who you are thanking rather than thanking who-you-know-not?

This worker is a wonderful person. She helps me a lot. But I guess there are some things she’s in the dark about. There are things many are in the dark about.

A good reason to have faith-based support groups.
