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.

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!

  2. I see Every bright new day as another oppurtunity to give to the world and to those around me and most importantly to leave a unique mark in their lives.
    Its yet another priviledge to do things i did before in a different and better way.
    I thank God for today because i put smiles on peoples faces and that gave me joy.
    I pray tomorrow will be better and i hope to see may more beautiful days.
