Every morning when I awaken and every evening before going to bed, I count my blessings. I thank God for each new day of life that he grants me. I thank him for surrounding me with people that love me and whom I love. I thank him for giving me the abilities to be the best teacher that I can be.
Each day brings new challenges. I thank God for giving me a chance to overcome obstacles that I have been confronted with. I am thankful to Him for protecting me and those I love each day. I appreciate and take seriously the opportunity to be a positive role model. Although I am not perfect, I thank God for providing guidance to me for being the best that I can be.
Prayer is important. I know that many times we ask God to grant us wishes. Each of you should strive to use prayer to thank God for things he provides whether large or small.
