I am thankful for today. I don't mean specifically this very day, but every new day. Like many people I used to live my life at a frenzied pace, trying to do several things at once, and worrying about what I needed to do tomorrow and the day after etc. I know now that I can only control what I do today because yesterday is gone and there is no guarantee of tomorrow.

Every morning when I wake up to dawn of a new day, I now make a point to thank God for giving me the gift of yet another day. I thank him for today. I believe that I am getting closer everyday to being where I want to be in terms of living in the now. When you come right down to it, now is all we really have in which to live our lives. Everything that we have ever done was done in the now of when we did it. Everything that we will ever do will be done in the now of when we do it.

Today is all we have right now. Yesterday was today when we experienced it and tomorrow will be today when it gets here.

Let's all make the most of today. I know I will attempt to do just that and continue to be thankful for each and every today with which the Good Lord, in all his infinite wisdom sees fit to give me.

Thank you for sharing!

Hi Larry, thank you for that! I cannot agree more - living today is all that we have - even more, you can narrow it down to living in this moment, in this now, all the time. One amazing thing here, that I have observed - the more we live in this moment and this moment only, the easier life becomes - as if by magic ;-)
