I danced in the rain last night.  It was fun!!  Two neighbors also got in on the act as did their children.  Today I get to take 6 teen-age girls shopping and out to lunch.  I may sing along to the radio while I drive and maybe I can get these girls to sing with me.  I may meet someone new.  I may learn something new.  Who knows what today will bring?!

I read somewhere that we really should enjoy today as we are the oldest we've ever been and the youngest we'll ever be.  I kinda like that!  I just want to really live and squeeze out every enjoyable minute I'm here on earth.  Not every minute is enjoyable but I tend to get through the bad minutes and then forget them while hanging on to the good and remembering them forever.

When I quit smoking (538 days ago, I think), I gave myself the greatest gift ever!!  No more dividing my time into the smoking/not smoking moments.  No more thinking about where I can smoke, do I have enough to last the weekend, where is my lighter, can I sneak away.....you know?  My time, my precious time is once again mine!!  I get to decide what I do, my addiction doesn't dictate it anymore.

So, whatcha gonna do today?  Maybe touch someone's life?  Maybe have your best day ever at work?  Maybe sing that one song you've always loved?  Maybe feel tickled that you quit smoking?  Maybe be kinder to yourself than you usually are?

Whatever you do, please live this day!!  It's a gift.  And so are you :)  Thank you for making me feel like what I say matters.....you've made someone else's day already!  Enjoy yours.
