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

I can complain because the weather is rainy or I can be thankful that the grass is getting watered
for free.

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.

I can grumble about my health or I can rejoice that I am alive.

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.

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

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

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

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

I can murmur dejectedly because I have to do housework or I can feel honored because the Lord
has provided shelter for my body, mind and soul.

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.
