My Thanksgiving of Gratitude

God, whose face
is the face of every man, woman
and child in this world,
I thank you for your face.
I thank you
for the feast of those
I have been able to know,
for those I cherish
to the last shore of love.
I thank you for every breath
they take.
For every moment their lives
touch mine.
For the blessed forever
they have in your heart.
It is a privilege to thank you
for each of them.
For being born to share life
with them.
They are the food of my soul,
the joy of my life,
and where they are
I go to them with my prayers
