Today Is A New Day
Monday, January 01, 2018
Many years ago I was given the gift of a thought for starting each day. For many years I kept it on my dresser where I would see it often. Over time it got moved around and finally put in a drawer. Recently I came across it again and have pulled it out. I don't know who the original author was, and there are several slightly different versions on the Internet. Now I'm going to pull it out again and start reading it daily. I am passing it on to everyone else as a gift for the new year.
A New Day
This is the beginning of a new day.
I have been given this day to use as I will.
I can waste it or use it for good,
but what I do today is important
because I am exchanging a day of my life for it.
When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever,
leaving in its place something that I have traded for it.
I want it to be gain and not loss; good and not evil;
success and not failure; in order that I shall not
regret the price I have paid for it.
Happy New Year to everyone.
