What’s Special About Today On Your Calendar?

Ninety-Nine Years ago my mother was born, so today has always been special to me.

I don’t know about y’all, but sometimes I find myself reading that small piece of the newspaper that says what important happened on this day. Usually its about a war that was started, or a famous person who was born or died n that day.
Now that I’m a little older than I ever dreamed I’d ever be, I wish I had kept a record by days of what important or special happened to me on a particular day.
Maybe, the day I pitched a no-hitter and still lost the game, maybe the exact day I proposed to Suzy (It was in early May, I know that), or the day I received a transplant, special days in my life including those few I still remember such as birthdays and anniverseries.
If i had kept such a book, I’d bet every page would be filled, not just with one entry, but on some days multiple entries. I have no doubt your book would be filled to the brim as well.
Sadly, I didn’t keep such a book, but maybe its not too late to start. Maybe, if I started such a book or calendar I’d come to realize how special every day is and has been.
As you meditate this morning ask yourself what was or is going to be special about today. If you take that attitude then it is likely to be a very special day. Enjoy!
