“The Best Day Of My Life”



Today we went to my niece’s 7th birthday party. My girls enjoyed it so much they said that today is the best day ever. They say that all the time. When we watch a movie, when we go swimming, when we’re on a vacation, when we simply spend family time even at home. They always gush, “It’s the best day of my life!”

It makes me think that us, oldies, treat the word “best” with so much reverence and also with so much fear and trepidation that we refuse to use it unless we have proof that it is indeed so. But my girls….they automatically use it when they feel happy.

Today is one of those days. Ahhh…the best day ever. And I can only smile in agreement.

It is so good that they have so many 'best' days..so good that they enjoy their lives so much and have so much appreciation!

How gorgeous are they in their dresses!!! I love "best days ever" much better than my kids who today told me I was a "meanie and dinner was the worst dinner ever and ever!"

Thanks, Carol and Lizeylou. They can be bratty once in a while but most days they're just so sweet.

that is so cute!! And i think your right....kids teach us it's ok to just think that the moment your in, is the best. which should be so, that's why its called the present! Your nieces look divine too - such princesses! xx
