I have been given the gift of SIGHT,
the gift to truly see a feeling, a personality.
I have been given the art of CARING.
To know each one is special...exactly as they are.
I have been given a very special TALENT.
To take the magic of an individual smile and capture it forever.
I have been given the ABILITY
to hold memories for others, in turn, to hold dear.
I have been given the PRIVILEGE to share in the
more precious times of another's life, in laughter, joy and tears.
Please give me RESPECT for others at all times
To let them know how truly special they are.
Please give me the KNOWLEDGE to not only grow
in technical expertise, but also in character.
Please give me the STRENGTH not to let life's
problems overwhelm me and become larger then they are.
And above all, let me keep a LOVE of life,
more then my heart can hold;
so that by sharing what has been given me,
I will be the BEST I CAN BE!
