“I thank you life, for giving me everything I could ever want.
I thank you world, for making me as happy as any living being can be.
I know I’ll be in your debt as long as I live and much longer than that. But I swear to you once more, whatever challenge you may put in my way I will face it gladly, for I know you have made my path easy.
And whatever misery is waiting for me in the future I will endure it gladly for I know I have already experienced enough happiness for more than one lifetime.
I am grateful and proud for being who I am. I have no regrets, I have no fears. Whatever may come shall come, I’ll be ready.”
