    What's the best thing that happened to you today?

    Alrighty, title says it all: What was the best thing that happened to you today?

    I shall start off: I got an audition for a band! And I am completely overjoyed. They've already heard me sing, so getting this audition is actually a compliment, not just a random stroke of luck. :P

    So now I will practice, practice, practice until the 9. of November.

    As my teacher always said: perfect practice makes perfect.

    Spread the joy!

    Congratulations, Buttercup

    Hopefully you will keep practicing well after the audition in November. As I approach 50 years as a professional musician, I still practice every week. I haven't yet reached "perfection" as my quest for learning will never cease until the day I die.

    I practice minimum half an hour twice a day, and have for a few years, before that it was an hour twice a week. Practice is fun

    At my age, the best thing that happened was -- I woke up.

    I am glad you woke up. Well done Buttercup, good luck to you.

    The best thing that happened to me today, was I met a friend and had a chat.

    Wonderful news, Josephine!

    The best thing that happened to me was finding a small lizard and showing it to three children who happened to turn up at just the right moment. They're not all that common in the UK, I've only seen one three or four times in my life. (I mean lizards, obviously!)

    Used to see lots when I was a kid, but a lot of the heathland which is their main habitat has been built on and they are now an endangered species so are protected where possible.
    Cheers MIKE.

    Best thing to happen to me today was to wake up and be alive and joyous that I don't have dimentia or cancer (yet).
    I'm not an atheist and I don't think I can call myself a pantheist. We are in the position of a little child entering a huge library filled with books in many different languages. The child knows someone must have written those books. It does not know how. The child dimly suspects a mysterious order in the arrangement of the books but doesn't know what it is. That, it seems to me, is the attitude of even the most intelligent human being toward God.

    That's a good thing CT. I am always grateful to wake up, with my health.

    Today's number one was waking up to the face of my boyfriend, and realizing that I passed the terrible three days of nonsmoking, without noticing. I am now on day five.

    I find that after 75 years, waking up has become a bit of a habit, one I hope not to break anytime soon.
    Cheers MIKE.

    I'm happy that good things are happening to you all.

    Hmm, I had a very nice drive to visit my sister, and at one point I had a lovely panoramic view of water, cloud and sky. The clouds were lit up by the sun. I saw geese fly over head too.
