Today is Yours
11 June 2000

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

     Today I can feel sad that I don't have more money or 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 or 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 or I can feel grateful that they allowed me to be born.

     Today I can cry because roses have thorns or I can celebrate that thorns have roses.

     Today I can mourn my lack of friends or I can excitedly embark upon a quest to discover new relationships.

     Today I can whine because I have to go to work or I can shout for joy because I have a job to do.

     Today I can complain because I have to go to school or eagerly open my mind and fill it with rich new tidbits of knowledge.

     Today I can murmur dejectedly because I have to do housework or I can feel honored because God 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.
