A friend emailed me this today - i think it sums things up pretty nicely!! :-)

Today, when I awoke, I suddenly realized that this is the
> best day of my life, ever
> There were times when I wondered if I would make it to today; but I did!
> And because I did I'm going to celebrate!
> Today, I'm going to celebrate what an unbelievable life I have had so far: the accomplishments, the many blessings, and, yes, even the hardships because they have served to make me stronger.
> I will go through this day with my head held high and a happy heart.
> I will marvel at God's seemingly simple gifts:
> the morning dew,the sun,the clouds,the trees,
> the flowers,the birds.
> Today, none of these miraculous creations will escape my notice
> Today, I will share my excitement for life with other people.
> I'll make someone smile.
> I'll go out of my way to perform an unexpected act of kindness for someone I don't even know. Today, I'll give a sincere compliment to someone who seems down. I'll tell a child how special he is, and I'll tell someone I love just how deeply I care for them and how much they mean to me.
> Today is the day I quit worrying about what I don't have and start being grateful for all the wonderful things God has already given me. I'll remember that to worry is just a waste of time because my faith in God and his Divine Plan ensures everything will be just fine.
> And tonight, before I go to bed, I'll go outside and raise my eyes to the heavens. I will stand in awe at the beauty of the stars and the moon, and I will praise God for these magnificent treasures.
> As the day ends and I lay my head down on my pillow,
> I will thank the Almighty for the best day of my life.
> And I will sleep the sleep of a contented child,
> excited with expectation because
> I know tomorrow is going to be the best day of my life, ever!
