1. ~today~

    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 a great life i have had so far; the accomplishments, the many blessings, and 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 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!
