My friend said "it's been raining and gray every day. And the best thing about it is that I won't get wrinkles in a hurry". That's the "best thing" that happened to her that day. What's yours?

I would say 'I woke up' but I really didn't want to.

@Drosophila Had some really good luck buying used albums yesterday. Found a couple I have had my eyes peeled for.

Besides the obvious, I just finished a long, invigorating walk, had breakfast, and got a kiss from my hubby. Now to get ready for a busy and fun day. What's yours?

I love this. The best thing that happened to me today, thus far, is that I woke up. Another day of life!

@corallevang I agree that today the best thing that happened to me is I awakened and Marty hamster was still up when I woke up, too. And another thing is thinking how Marty was in his exercise ball for 2 hours last night having a great time!

Best thing that happened to me today...I woke up, had my eye sight, my hearing, a house to live in...uh, I know that sounds really cheesy, and I'm easily pleased, but...these seem like very very good things to me;).

The best thing that happened this morning was me seeing my family when I woke up this morning. My children and husband make me very happy. =)

My daughter finally calming down and not screaming. Instead she is reading to see what side effects my medicines can have or what foods can effect them.

@Drosophila Thank you. Yes she does. If she would take her mood stabilizer like the doctor prescribed we would have less days filled with her screaming.

My day hasn't really gotten started yet although I've been at work since before 7:30 am (though I'm only allowed to clock in at 7:30) all of the students are testing so that means I don't get to see the kids I tutor throughout the week and I should be lesson planning, only I completed that with in the first two hours of work. Its now 10:47am and since my supervisor doesn't have work for me and I have no ride home I get some free time! This also allows me to rest my poor injured foot, can't beat that! I'm supposed to stay off of it for 2 weeks but my job requires a lot of walking of which I did all day yesterday so this is really the best thing that's happened to me today.

I have to say 'nothing' best thing happened till the day. But some bad incidents happened instead. But still the day is left enough and hope anything best happens. Let's stay positive.

indeed, sometimes, the best thing that happens on such a day is that "it has ended". Sufficient is each day the evil thereof.

Wow going back to the day this was posted, hmmmm, I remember the best thing that particular day was the snow was starting to melt after the HUGE snowstorm we had only 9 days before . . . meaning travel to and from work was not going to be as dangerous !
