Today...

Weekly writing assignment from Mama Kat: Today I will...

Today I will have a positive attitude. I won’t dwell on the things I cannot change, but rather embrace the things I can.

I will find things to smile about and reasons to laugh.

I will do at least one thing for me.

I will let the people I love know exactly how much they mean to me, for I’ve come to realize that tomorrow is not promised.

Today I will thank God for the many wonderful blessings in my life.

I echo jill and diane. I'll bet that you are a joy to be around in person - because you certainly are a joy in blogland.

What a wonderful & inspiring post! You are so right on about making today count & you never know what tomorrow will bring, I think that's they call today, the present.
