Your Last Day

If you learned today was going to be your last day on earth, how would you use it?  Some people get really shaken up by this question.  Others, like my mother's mother, look forward to their last day as if they are getting ready for a vacation.

The way you answer the question is influenced by your views on what happens after death.  My grandma had great relationships with others, contributed to society and believed death was only a doorway to a better place.  She sat up in her hospital bed and told my mother she was ready to go.  Grandma was giddy and she knew when it was her time exit this world.  There was nothing left to accomplish except to say goodbye to her loved ones.  All of us were restless while she glowed like an expectant mother.

The best way to be ready for your final day on this planet is to live each day as if it's your last.  Today is the best day to forgive your enemies and make peace with your neighbors.  It's the best day to connect with nature and savor it.  Don't forget to tell your loved ones how special they are to you.  Do something today that will put a smile on a stranger's face.  Today is a gift.  Live this day to it's fullest.
