What Kind Of Day Will You Have Today?
August 3, 2012
My Best Day Ever
As I grow older, I realize more and more how important time is. I realize that today is the day I live in. Today, I know what is possible in my life. Today, I can be and do what I want to do. Will it
be worthwhile? Will it be worthy of my time spent? Can I be happy with how I live today? Am I preparing for my tomorrows? Am I preparing for my eternity?
Today, when I awoke, I realized that this is one of the best days of my life. There have been times when I wondered if I would prevail through another day, but I did. Because I did, I'm going to celebrate.
Today, I'm going to celebrate what an unbelievable life I have had so far; the accomplishments, the many blessings, and yes, even the hardships, as they have made me stronger. I will go through today
with my head held high. I will have a happy heart. I will marvel at God's simple gifts; the morning dew, the sun, the clouds, the trees, and the birds. Today, I will see all of these wonderful creations in their fullest.
Today, I will share my excitement for life with others. I'll make someone smile. I'll make someone laugh. I'll go out of my way to perform an act of kindness to someone I don't know. Today, I'll give
a sincere compliment to someone who seems down. I'll tell a child how special they are. I'll tell someone I love just how much she means to me. Today, I'll quit worrying about what I don't have and give
thanks for the many blessings that are mine. I'll remember that to worry is just a waste of time because my faith in God and His Divine Plan ensures everything will be just fine.
And tonight, before I go to bed, I'll go outside and raise my eyes to the heavens. I will stand in awe at the beauty of the stars and the moon, and I will praise God for these magnificent treasures.
As the day ends and I lay my head on my pillow, I will thank the Almighty Creator for the best day of my life. I will sleep the sleep of a contented child; excited with expectations, because I know
tomorrow could be, yes, my best day in life, ever....
