I have a lot of grateful things in my life, like many other people. What I'm grateful for is being alive. I have many reasons why I'm grateful for being alive. Being alive is something special to me, because not everyone is able to be alive and enjoy everything in this world. Another reason why I am grateful is because God gave me the opportunity to know and meet people in this world. To the only one that I give thanks is to God, because he has me living in this world. I hope that he could give me more years of living in this world.
I'm glad to be alive because I have the opportunity to enjoy everything in this world. If I weren't alive, I would never meet the people that I know now, that are my friends and family. Not everyone has the opportunity to be alive in this world. Some of them die when they are little, some of them don't even get to open their eyes and know how this world looks. I'm glad that God gave me the opportunity to let me open my eyes and know how this world looks.
Sometimes I say, when I'm mad, very sad, or when I'm furious, I say that I prefer to be dead or never be alive. I can't tell you why I feel and say that, because it is something private in my life. Even though I would like to be alive, It's just my anger that makes me say that kind of stuff. But at the end I always say sorry to God for saying that dumb thing. Although when I said that, I know that I'm happy in the inside for being alive. I know that God loves me with all his heart, and wants me to enjoy everything in this world.
I'm happy and grateful for being alive too because the almighty gave the opportunity to come to this country, that is the U.S.A. If I didn't come here, I would never meet the teachers, students, and securities from this school. I wouldn't know English too. If I weren't alive, I would never know the love of my life. Right now I don't know if the guy who I'm going out, is going to be the love of my whole life. But the only thing that I know is that I love him a lot, and I know that he loves me back the same. That's why I'm grateful for being alive.
In conclusion being alive is something special and that you have to enjoy a lot. Because you only have one life and that's all. Not everyone has the opportunity to be alive and I'm very grateful to God to have me in this world alive and to let me know all the things and people that I know now. The only thing you cannot regret is to be alive. That's a gift that Jesus gave us, and I'm glad that God gave that gift to me and to all the people that I love.
