Today I held the door open for a stranger

and returned a lost I.D.
Today I gave directions to a frantic mother

and no one thanked me

Today I helped an old man up the stairs

and asked the cashier about his day
Today I packed food boxes at Care and Share

and went along my way

Today I recycled

and donated some mittens and gloves
Today I called my brother

to remind him he is loved

Today I respected my teachers

and followed every rule
Today I let someone go ahead in line

and told a girl her jeans were cool

Today I gave away my thirty percent coupon

and lent someone change for gas
Today I answered truthfully

to every question I was asked

Today I comforted a friend

and picked up some trash on the ground
Today I didn’t dwell on the bad

but the happiness I had found

Today I was thankful

and joyful and kind
Today I was friendly

and I danced a little with life

Today I felt good

being the best that I could be
I am history in the making

and no one knows but me
