— I have a lot to be thankful for. I have been called to hear God´s word – Thank you Lord God. My heart has been opened to Him – Thank you Jesus. I live with a wonderful, beautiful man (with specific characters i personally need) in a wonderful, beautiful land where i learn something new every day. I am blessed with learning about patience and sacrifice, humility and reminders of giving, wonders of prayers and worship and loving the people He has made – Thank you Holy Father. I am blessed with wonders of God´s creations everywhere i look. I feel loved; fear does not dominate me and I feel the breeze of peace every now and then. – Thank you God, how I love you. Thank you for all your blessings and love. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. —
