A Japanese Drum (Taiko) band has a motto:
希望し 努力し 感謝して生きる
The band members have intellectual disabilities but strived to become professional drummers. In a few weeks, they are going to France to play at a cultural event for the disabled. They need to bring a business card with this motto in English. I don't know how to translate it other than "We live our lives by hoping, striving and appreciating" or "Our life is to hope, strive and appreciate." Please help to do it better. Thank you.
