All you have to do is express your deepest appreciation
to everyone surrounding you
for everything they’ve done for you.
Be aware of every happy day and night
that you carry on with joy,
protected by the guiding power of the universe,
and do something good to them in return by your own choice.
Take notice that they will stare at you with sparkling eyes.
