Attitude Determines Attitude! 
I woke up early today, excited over all I get to do
   Before the clock strikes midnight.

I have responsibilities to fulfill today, I am important.
   My job is tochoose what kind of day I am going to have.

Today I can complain because the weather is rainy or
   I can be thankful that the grass is getting watered for free.

Today I can feel sad that I don't have more money or
   I can be glad that mhy finances encourage me to plan
   my purchases wisely and guide me away from waste.

Today I can groumble about my helath or
   I can rejoice that I am alive.

Today I can lament over all my parents didn't give me or
   I can feel grateful that they allowed me to be born.

Today I can cry because roses have thorns or
   I can celebrate that thorn bushes have roses.

Today I can mourn my lack of friends or
   I can embark upon a quest for new relationships.

Today I can whie because I have to go to work or
   I can shout for joy because I have a job to do.

Today I can murmur because I have to do housework or
   I can feel honored because the Lord has prvided
   shelter for my mind, body, and soul.

Today stretches ahead of me, waiting to be shaped.
   And here am I, the sculptor who get to dothe shaping.

What today will be like is up to me.
   I get to choose what kind of day I will have!

Have a great day!
