Lora Clark — The phone rang…

The phone rang.  It was my friend Annette.  She had been going through a rough time.  “I feel so alone,” she said.  “I’ve even lost God and don’t know how to find him.”  I’d felt the same way once, and told Annette how making a gratitude list had helped.  “Write down the numbers one through fifty down the side of a piece of paper,” I explained.  “Then go back and count the things you’re thankful for.  And remember, it’s not the things you’re supposed to be thankful for, but the things you really are thankful for.”  “Okay then, I’ll give it a try,” Annette said, hanging up.  Not long after, the phone rang again.  It was Annette.  “I found him!” she exclaimed joyfully.
