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/she 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
 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!
