Dear God, I am grateful for this wonderful gift of my life that you have blessed me with. It is ripe with chances and choices I can make with it. The many things I can learn. The awe-inspiring sights I can see. The delightful sounds I can hear. The different people I can meet. There are many beautiful things in this life you have given, along with its many paths I can travel. I am alive with the will to think and act, and I thank you for such a blessing. Amen.
