I have now returned home and will be seeing my family doctor. After examining me and without letting me know that she was concerned I might slip into a deep, dark depression. She wanted me to stay focused on the positive so she prescribed that every night before I fell to sleep I was to think of three things I was grateful for.
My next appointment arrived three months later and she asked how I was doing.
I told her I wasn’t able to think of three things I was grateful for.
She became upset and a tsunami-sized diatribe was quickly headed my way and about to engulf me. That’s when I spoke up.
“ Excuse me, but I am a believer in God and a follower of Jesus Christ. I took your advice of thinking of three blessings in my life but I could not do it. I tried and tried but I could never stop at just three."
