There may come a day when I will not seek new adventures,
when I will not long to see the view from the mountain top.
But not today
There may come a day when the pain and injuries of the past
will overcome and cripple me,
But not today.
This day is unique, it is unlike any day
that has come before and it is
different from any day yet to come.
I claim it as my own … to make of what I choose.
For this day, I choose to smile and laugh
and keep gratitude in my heart.
For this day, I breathe in the joy of life,
and choose to see the beauty
that is everywhere.
I know that one day pain and sorrow may come again
but not today.
For this day, I choose happiness.
