I am grateful this day for the rain that sustains me
for the sun that nurtures me, for the wind that buffets me.
I wish to give back more than I take from this world,
value more than that which is has been given me
and shore up that which has always endured me.
May I always gaze at the stars and feel joy
for my minuscule part in the limitless universe.
