180 grateful steps

As I approached the elevator, the thought hit me: “Are we really grateful for the good already received?” Mary Baker Eddy poses this question on page three of the Christian Science textbook, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve asked myself this question and exasperatedly thought, “Well, of course I am!” and then continued to sulk. I was about to step into the elevator when an angel message asked me to reconsider this statement. So I did, thoughtfully and purposely, like this:
