Thank you God for this day.
Thank you God for this life.
I am blessed beyond compare.
I have everything I need in this moment.
I have love, health, and family.
There is joy everywhere I look.
God bless my daughter, Jessica.
God bless my son, Nicholas.
God bless my friends and family.
I vow to care for this precious gift of life.
And let those around me know how grateful I am.
To share another day loving, living, and laughing.
