Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself;
I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.
I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet.
I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.
~Groucho Marx

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

  1. Now that's a great list! I got quite the chuckle out of being thankful for people who know how to merge in traffic. :D

    Have a fun weekend!

  2. When my hair started turning gray I dyed it but after a while I quit and it's so nice not to have to worry with that.
    Enjoyed reading your list.

  3. Nice list, I was once told that at the end of each day we should think of three good things or blessings that have happened that day...even if it was a bad day! I do try to do it but I think your list is great.

  4. I love your list. Keep it happy! You're doing great.
