Today, when I awoke, I suddenly realized
that this is the best day of my life, ever!
There 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, the sun, the clouds,
the trees, the flowers, the birds.
Today, none of these miraculous creations
will escape my notice.
Today, I will share my excitement for life
with other people.
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 her and how much she means 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 magnificent treasures.
As 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!
