Today, when I awoke, I suddenly realized that this is the best day of my
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!
