Today is the First Day of the Rest of Your Life! 

Each morning, when I open my eyes and welcome a new day, I see it is an opportunity!
An opportunity to make it the best day that it can be.
This opportunity means that I try to live each day as if it were my last!
One day it will be -- but until then -- I'll be sharing with you a variety of things that I've learned,
discovered, and even laughed at along the way.  Enjoy my journey with me as we live it One Day at a Time!

Today is the first day of the rest of your life. What will you do with it?
