Thank you for my life on this earth,
however challenging or not.
Thank you for giving me free will to love and be loved
to make my own decisions,
to learn from my mistakes,
to laugh when I’m happy,
to cry when I’m sad.
Thank you for my family, my friends, my colleagues,
and for every other person I meet along my journey,
Thank you for giving me strength to overcome adversity,
to do what’s right for the benefit of the greater good,
and to rise above negativity.
Thank you for giving me hope
where I know there’ll be an end to world’s suffering and pain,
and the promise of a world filled with light and everlasting love.
Thank you Jesus for listening to me.
And there’s one more thing I’d like to say,
I love you Jesus more and more each day!
