Today, when I awoke, I suddenly realized that this is the best day of my
were times when I wondered if I would make it to today; but I did!
And 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 because they have served to make me stronger.
I will go through this day with my head held
high and a happy heart.
I will marvel at God's seemingly simple gifts:
the morning dew,
none of these miraculous creations will escape my notice
Today, I will share my excitement for life with
I'll make someone smile.
I'll go out of my way to perform an unexpected act of kindness for
someone I don't even know. Today, I'll give a sincere compliment
to someone who seems down. I'll tell a child how special he is,
and I'll tell someone I love just how deeply I care for them and how
much they mean to me.
Today is the day I quit worrying about what I
don't have and start being grateful for all the wonderful things God has
already given me. 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
the day ends and I lay my head down on my pillow,
I will thank the Almighty for the best day of my life.
And I will sleep the sleep of a contented child,
excited with expectation because I know tomorrow is going to be the best
day of my life, ever!
