In many cultures, reflecting on what we have to be grateful for can help us see our blessings, even in the face of adversity. However, this isn’t universally true, so reflect before using this on whether this is an appropriate youth work tool in your culture. If your culture is one where gifts can be accepted without expecting a similar gift or service given in return, this will probably help. If your culture means that a gift puts a burden on a young woman or girl to reciprocate, this exercise may act as a list of ‘debts’ rather than ‘blessings’. Use your judgement!
