I Am Worth It


I am alive, here, right now.

I am worth it.

I breathe this delicious air. The air that Jesus breathed. The air that Buddha breathed. The air that makes fire.

I am worth it.

What surprise do you give me today? What’s for lunch? For dinner? Who will visit? On the phone. In my thoughts.

Will you give me the soothing pitter patter of rain? Or the sun which sends shadows everywhere? Or perhaps the gentle snow?

I am worth it.

So many inventions in my time that appear – for me – television, smartphones.

And how about all the inventions already here when I was born? – books, dishes, hats, electricity.

And all the knowledge passed down to me: how to make French toast, how to talk and write, how to grow flowers and vegetables

I am worth it.

All the entertainment past and present: music, movies, and tv shows I love. Perhaps I want to see one right now.

I am worth it.

I carried my earlier responsibilities – it’s much easier now.

I am worth it.

And anything that makes me even an iota happier, even a smidge happier, I do.

For I know, in God’s eyes - I am worth it.
