THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE

 

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 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 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!
