We become what we repeatedly say we are. Our "I am" statement re-creates who we are each day.
Expressing gratitude helps define our daily “I am” statement.
Gratitude for what we have helps us to see how blessed we really are.
Every morning, I say the following prayer. I may modify it slightly, according to circumstance and need. Some of my friends have asked me to share it. You may use it, modify it and share it as you wish.
