Time to say goodnight. I hope you all had a great day and I wish you the same for tomorrow. Make it and each day your day, make them masterpieces if you can.

How would you spend today if it were the one day by which your entire life would be judged? This is something I make a genuine effort to keep in mind every single day of my life.

What would I write if I knew I only had one shot at making a difference in someone’s life? I attempt that every day.

How would I spend the next hour with my children and granddaughter if I knew it was the only hour they would remember as an adult?

How would I spend this evening with my wife if it were the last evening we would spend together?

How would I spend my money today if I knew that today spoke financially for the rest of my days?

Would I hold my temper? Would I stop being such a slob? Would I set a good example? Would I not worry what the neighbors thought and just run through the sprinkler in my clothes, laughing? Would I make a perfectly delicious, tasty meal and smile at my wife across the dinner table – or would I just throw a box of Hamburger Helper out there?

Every single day, we’re making an impact on the people around us. The people we love. The people we merely like. The people we will never directly know. Even on ourselves – our future health and happiness and relationships and skills and finances, ALL OF IT!

Every single day, we have a chance to really make all of those things shine – or we can buy a sack full of junk food and sit in the basement all evening watching reruns.

God bless each of you and all of those to whom you are connected. †Ω∞
