|May You Always Feel Loved...
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 and optimism.
Always know that there are those
whose love and understanding
will always be there,
even when you feel most alone.
May you discover
enough goodness in others
to believe in a world of peace.
May a kind word, a reassuring touch,
a warm smile be yours every day of your life,
and may you give these gifts
as well as receive them.
Remember the sunshine
when the storm seems unending.
Teach love to those who know hate,
and let that love embrace you
as you go into the world.
May the teaching of those you admire
become part of you,
so that you may call upon them.
those whose lives you have touched
and who have touched yours
are always a part of you,
even if the encounters were less
than you would have wished.
It is the content of the encounter
that is more important than its' form.
May you not become too concerned
with material matters,
but instead place immeasurable value
on the goodness in your heart.
Find time in each day
to see the beauty and love
in the world around you.
Realize that each person
has limitless abilities,
but each of us
is different in our own way.
What you may feel you lack
in one regard
may be more
than compensated for in another.
What you feel you lack in the present
one of your strengths in the future.
May you see your future as one
filled with promise and possibility.
Learn to view everything
as a worthwhile experience.
May you find enough inner strength
to determine your own worth
and not be dependent
on another's judgments
of your accomplishments.
May you always feel loved.
