Day 22: 29 Days of Gratitude

Like three days ago, the gratitude practice for Friday, February 22nd is also taken from the book "How to Want What You Have." (I preached on this book a few years ago.)

In one of the most memorable passages from that book the author, Timothy Miller, is discussing gratitude. He says that if you try to think of something to be grateful for and draw a complete blank you could always imagine the earthworms that live underground and that pass through the soil making it better for plants and flowers. If you can't be thankful for anything, be thankful for worms!

Of all the passages in the book, this one stands out most clearly years later.

Practice: As you go through your day, make note of the "worms" all around you, things happening that you could be grateful for if you took the time to notice.

What are some of them?
