When I woke up today, I suddenly realized this is the best day of my life. 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! Therefore, I'm going to celebrate what an unbelievable life I have had so far. The accomplishments, blessings… And, yes. Even the difficulties because they made me grow stronger. I will go through today with my head held high, and with a joyful heart.
I will be thankful to 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 from my eyes. I will share my excitement of life with other people today. 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 him and how much he 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 worrying 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 too!
