If you could choose a BEST day.

I was watching CBS Sunday Morning yesterday.  I try to catch it each Sunday before church.  I love the mix of news, politics, art, music and odd ball stuff they come up with it.  I think Charles Osgood is charming too.  They had a piece about a play called Old Town- click here if you would like to see it.  I have never seen the play but I guess at the end of the it a woman dies and gets to choose one day in her life to go back to and spend the day.  That thought intrigued me.  What if you could?  Which day would you choose?  I thought about it for a while and I don't know that I could pin point one day of my life.

Would I go back to my own childhood to a day that we spent swimming in the hot Kansas sun?  To a strip pit that we traveled to in the back of a pick up truck riding along side my Grandma watching her enjoy the ride at her old age as much as us kids did?  Or would it be another day where I spent exploring acres of land and catching baby catfish in our creek?  Would I choose a certain birthday?  Christmas? Would I pick a fun filled day with friends or a fun filled day with family or a day of both?  Would I want to be a silly teen again with all my goofy friends that would laugh at anything?  Would I want to go back to a time when it was just me and my little guy Cory and we seemed so content with one another just sitting down together to watch TV?  Or my wedding? The day my Grandson was born?  I think it would be tough to pick a best day of your life.  I have many, many great moments but a whole day? 

I also like to watch I Survived on the Biography channel on Sunday evenings.  Last night 2 of the people, after being faced with death and then realized that they were going to be okay said, that it was the best day (and emphasized  "best"), day of their life.  Then I thought, if your faced with no more little moments and then it's all given back to you for a second chance, then-yes, that would make for one best day.

  1. Wow Stacey. What a thought-provoking post. As I was reading this, several stellar days/moments popped into my head, but it would be difficult to choose just one.


I would love to hear your ideas or comments!
