I am grateful for the awareness You have given me of how precious my Life is and how important it is to fully enjoy my Life.

I would like to share with you an excerpt from the Prayer for Gratitude, from Don Miguel Ruiz’ book, Prayers: A Communion With Our Creator. This is such a fitting prayer for what I am trying to do, which is to live my life fully and for this gratitude journal.

“Today, Creator of the universe, my heart is filled with gratitude for the gift of life you have given me. Thank you for the opportunity to experience this beautiful body and this wonderful mind. Today, Lord I want to express my gratitude for everything I have received from you.

I know the way to say thank you for life is by fully enjoying every moment of my life. And the only way to enjoy every moment is to love.”
