Today! Anonymous

I woke up early today, excited over all I get to do before the clock strikes
midnight. I have responsibilities to fulfill today. I am important. My job is to
choose what kind of day I am going to have.

Today - I can complain because the weather is rainy

I can be thankful that the grass is getting watered for free.

Today - I can feel sad that I don't have more money

I can be glad that my finances encourage me to plan my purchases wisely and guide me away from waste.

Today - I can grumble about my health

I can rejoice that I am alive.

Today - I can lament over all that my parents didn't give me when I was growing up

I can feel grateful that they allowed me to be born.

Today - I can cry because roses have thorns

I can celebrate that thorns have roses.

Today - I can mourn my lack of friends

I can excitedly embark upon a quest to discover new relationships.

Today - I can whine because I have to go to work

I can shout for joy because I have a job to do.

Today - I can complain because I have to go to school

eagerly open my mind and fill it with rich new tidbits of knowledge.
Today - I can murmur dejectedly because I have to do housework

I can feel honored because the Lord has provided shelter for my mind, body and soul.

Today stretches ahead of me, waiting to be shaped. And here I am, the sculptor
who gets to do the shaping. What today will be like is up to me. I get to choose what kind of day I will have!

Have a Great Day ... Unless you have other plans!
