I am grateful because

You listen to what I am feeling

You help me find answers to the difficult questions

You open up my eyes to a new way of seeing

Or you confirm that I need to follow my inner voice

I am grateful because

You allow me the space to open up

You are tender

You are kind

You are there for me

I am grateful because

You stand in that space with me

You see me

Exactly as I am

And you accept that person

I am grateful

For who you are

And how you show yourself to the world

You lead by example

And you go for it

For all of this I am grateful
