Thank you for my life. Though I've
made grievous errors in the past
time and again, today, I am simply
glad to be alive.
One of the most painful situation in
my life was when I lost my faith and
had to cope with a world I didn't
understand and meant less and less
to me. It was very empty and I have
learned that I can not rely on my brain
alone to understand the world and
nature. I realized I must avail myself of
faith even though it is a great mystery.
I've been blessed with good friend and
good health. I only prayer for those less
fortunate than I and have little to
report except my gratitude.
