The Grateful Living

I am thankful for the life which I have been given,

I am thankful for the teachers at school, who fostered my curiosity and nurtured my intelligence,

I am thankful for all the friends I have ever had

I am thankful for the opportunity to go to University to push my education as far as it could go

I am thankful for the Prothesists (fake leg makers) over the years who have given me the ability to walk, I would be nothing without them

I would also be nothing without the support of my family, who nurtured an independence and a fighting spirit within me

I am thankful for being born into a world of relative tolerance and freedom

I am thankful for alcohol and good times

But most of all, 

I am thankful to live.
