“Do you think today is just another day in your life?
It’s not just another day. It’s the one day that is given to you today. It’s given to you. It’s a gift. It’s the only gift that you have right now. And the only appropriate response is gratefulness.
If you do nothing else, cultivate that response through the great gift that this unique day is. If you learn to respond as if it were the first day in your life and the very last day then you will have spent this day very well…
I wish that you would open your heart to all these blessings and let them flow through you so that everyone who you will meet on this day will be blessed by you. Just by your eyes, by your smile, by your touch. Just by your presence. Let the gratefulness overflow into blessing all around you.
Then it will really be a good day.”
