WHO WILL YOU BE WHEN YOU WAKE UP TOMORROW …
If you woke up tomorrow and discovered it was still today, what would you do differently today?
Would you merely say, “Thank you,” to the taxi driver you slandered with vulgarity and racial epithets?
Would you get back from lunch on time instead of lying to your manager about why you were a half-hour late?
Would you decide to pick up your own dry cleaning and instead tell your wife how much you love her and appreciate her?
If you woke up tomorrow and realized one of your children was missing, what would you do differently today?
Would you wish you had played catch with your son instead of telling him you were “too tired” or “too busy?”
Would you have taken that half-day off from work when it was offered to you, and gone to your daughter’s third grade production of “The mouse and the stone” instead of trying to impress your boss with your “dedication”?
Would you have walked with your children to your neighborhood DQ® for some ice cream cones, instead of driving to the liquor store and buying yet another bottle of Jack Daniels?
If you woke up tomorrow and realized you were blind, what would you do differently today?
Would you pat your dog on the head and tell him he was “a good boy” instead of kicking him out of the way?
Would you notice the sadness in your husband’s eyes and give him an encouraging word instead of wondering why he seems not to see the sadness in your own eyes?
Would you have gone to that two-and-a-half-hour love story at the theater instead of insisting you watch, for the third time, the 90-minute slasher flick that made her sick to her stomach?
If you woke up tomorrow and realized you could live your life differently, better, selflessly, would you?
Why don’t you?
