May you find serenity and tranquility
in a world you may not always understand.
May the pain you have known
and the conflict you have experienced
give you the strength to walk through life
facing each new situation with courage & optimism.
Always know that there are those
whose love and understanding
will always be there even when you feel most alone.
May a kind word, a reassuring touch, and a warm smile,
be yours every day of your life.
and may you give these gifts as well as receive them.
Those whose lives you’ve touched
and who have touched yours,
are always a part of you
Realize that what you feel you lack in one regard
you may be more than compensated for in another.
What you fell you lack in the present,
may become one of your strength in the future.
May you find enough inner strength
to determine your own worth by yourself,
and not be dependent on another’s judgment
of your accomplishments
May you always feel loved.
