The Best Day of My Life
by Gregory M. Lousig-Nont, Ph.D.

                                                  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

                               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/him 
                               and how much she/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 to worry is just
                               a waste of time because my faith in the      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 give thanks for these magnificent 

                               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!

                                                HAVE WONDERFUL DAY!
