Because of Kylie’s attitude and personality I don’t think she has had many bad days. I can’t tell you how awesome it is though when she looks at you and says “today was a good day.” She says it quite often but it never fails to make me smile.
Today was one of those days. We went to the Columbus Zoo for about an hour then went to Zoombezi Bay. I had the girls we watch with us since Kim is in Florida. We did water slides, wave pool, lazy river, and the kids area. It was a beautiful, sun and fun filled day. It wore Kylie out because she fell asleep within minutes of getting in the car.
It got me thinking. How many good days have I had? Days where at the end I said “today was a really good day.” I can’t really think of too many. Today was definitely a good day but then I think I have so much to do when I get home. Kim is going to kill me if she sees the house like this when she gets home. Today was a good day but I have to go back to work tomorrow. Today was a good day but…. why do we let ourselves ruin a good day. Why can’t we just enjoy the moment, enjoy the day God has given us and not worry about other things.
I could have 99 things go right at work but when Kim asks me how my day was I complain about the one thing that messed my entire day up. Seriously, it might have been a problem that took ten minutes of my day to resolve but I fail to mention the rest of my good day. It was a good day until….
How many times have we been enjoying a day with the family then work calls and just ruins everything and puts you in a bad mood. I used to work for a boss that was like that. I worked 60-70 hours a week and then he would call on my day off or call at nine at night. I can’t tell you how many times he called on a Saturday night, after just seeing me all day Saturday, to say I don’t like how you did something, we will talk about it Monday. I would say what is it and he would say we will just talk about it Monday. Then why are you calling me on Saturday night. Then I would worry all day Sunday on what he was going to say, if I still had a job or what and not enjoy my time with my family. Monday would come and he would forget what he wanted to talk to me about but I let it ruin my good day with my family. I don’t work there anymore. My family and my life are more important than money. I have never been happier.
When Jesus was on the cross do you think He was thinking, this is a really bad day? Did the disciples think it was a bad day? I don’t know what they were thinking but I now know that three days later was the best day in history. It was the day God had made to save us from our sins and death was defeated.
Next time you think you are having a bad day, count your blessings. Think of the things that went right. I bet more times than not you will have more good than bad happen. If by chance your day did totally stink, go home and be thankful you have a home to go to. Eat dinner and be thankful you have something to eat. Tuck your children in and go to bed and be thankful your family is safe. When you wake in the morning thank God for another day. Thank God you can get out of bed on your own. Thank God you are at home and not in a hospital.
Choose joy, not happiness. Choose to be thankful, not ungrateful. Be content. Never stop praying.
Today choose to have a good day.
Today was a good day!
I made this video then realized I didn’t have enough pics of “today” to make the entire video so I had to include other good days. I started to think I wish I had taken more pics but then I wouldn’t have been in the middle of all the fun so I have the other pics in my head.

We Are by Big Time Rush – just because I forgot them on Date Night post, I later added a song by them, and it is Kylie’s fav band. I think we saw them in concert 5 times.
