Each day a new Beginning

I wake each morning with the thrill of expectation and the joy of being truly alive. And I’m thankful for

this day.  —Angela L. Wozniak—
Being open to the day’s offering, all of it, and looking for the positive experiences therein, becomes habit

only after a firm commitment and dedicated practice. Today is special for each of us.
These next twenty-four hours will be unlike all others. And we are not the persons we were, even as recently

as yesterday. Looking forward to all of the day’s events, with the knowledge that we are in the care of our

higher power, in every detail, frees us to make the most of everything that happens.
We have been given the gift of life. We are survivors. The odds against survival in our past make clear we have yet

a job to do and are being given the help to do it. Confidence wavers in all of us, but the strength we need will be

given to each of us.
In this day that stands before me, I can be certain that I’ll have many chances for growth, for kindness to others,

for developing confidence in myself. I will be thoughtful in my actions today. They are special and will be repeated no more.
