“I lift mine arms with thanks for this priceless gift of a new day. I am indeed a fortunate man and today’s hours are but a bonus, undeserved. Why have I been allowed to live this extra day when others, far better than I have departed?
I am thankful for the opportunities I have been given. I am thankful for the failures and setbacks which have made me stronger, and into the person I am today. I am thankful for all the support my friends and family give me.
I am thankful for my life, my memories, my experiences and the path ahead of me. I will not dwell on what I desire – I will be thankful for what I have.”
