for all the good times and all the hard times that have shaped me

For all the lessons that life has taught me; for all the good times and all the hard times that have shaped me; for all the happiness and all the trials that are yet to come; and for the magnificent blessing of this present moment, I offer my gratitude.

For the gift of the body, the senses, the heart and the mind, for these mechanisms of my soul, I offer my gratitude.

For the sight of the Beloved, the light of my eyes, my chosen companion on the road ahead, I prepare myself with open heart and open hands. In joy and humility I offer my gratitude.
