May this day be a constant canticle of gratitude

from now till I retire tonight.

May I welcome any negative event with gratitude

for the growth it will produce in my life.

May I face every single encounter with gratitude

for the manifestation of divine love it represents.

May I react to any disgruntled, angry face with gratitude
that my blessings can uplift them.

May I eat my meals with gratitude

for those who bring them to my table.

May I perform my work with the understanding

that the very act of giving thanks

can profoundly transform it.

The choice between complaint, indifference,

and gratitude

is mine at every…moment of my life.
