I Receive ALL of Life with Thanksgiving -
I have gratitude for EVERYTHING
that has ever occurred to bring me to this moment.

the roar of my courage and the cold sweat of my fear.
I accept gratefully the entirety of my past and my present life.

inventiveness, and service that they contribute.
In this world-view, money that is spent
or given away returns multiplied.
