“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,
and 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.”
