Great Day
Embracing life with gratitude, I make this day a great day!

Someone might have al-ready spoken best wishes to me today by saying, "Have a great day!"

I am glad that I do not need to passively wait to see what is going to happen to me, hoping that I will receive good news or a pleasant surprise. Instead I ask myself, What can I do to make this a great day?

I can take a gratitude break, letting myself be joyfully overwhelmed by all the good things that have been happening in my life. I can spend a while in meditation, being open to the good things that I know are coming and giving thanks for them in advance. I can even do something to help create a great day for someone else.

I feel the joy of today's blessings and of the blessings yet to come. Embracing life with gratitude, I make every day a great day.

"Stop and consider the wondrous works of God."--Job 37:14
