Some days I make better choices than others. I can choose to exercise. I can choose to eat well. I can choose to love my family and friends. I can choose to have a positive outlook. I can choose to try new things (like riding on Maid of the Mist, or joining a writers group). I can choose to believe that God cares more than I do about my family and even myself and that He makes a difference. Sometimes I forget these choices and let life make them. Bu I know that each day brings new opportunities. Looking over my checklist (see above), I have decided that today I'm going to do my best to choose well. I know you can too.
