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

A walk in the rain
I walked just a tad over 7 miles this morning in the pouring rain. I walked around the lake and then some. Great walking in the rain. I wore my rain pants and took along that new huge golf umbrella. This is going to sound silly but that umbrella got heavy after 7 miles!! It was so nice listening to the rain on the umbrella and being practically the only person by the lake. The whole time out I only saw three men joggers and one other woman walking. I see the woman all the time and we stopped to chat for a few minutes. She is from Seattle and said she feels right at home in the rain.
The only wild life I spotted today was ducks, geese, the heron and the white egret. I stopped to watch the egret fly low over the water. A few geese walked across the path in front of me and I could see the drops of water roll off their backs.
The picture is of the little stream that runs along the path I walk on my way to the lake. It is quite high already and it is supposed to rain a lot more today. I'm sure later on it will overflow its banks.
I'm planning on staying home all day in this rain.
I may post again later tonight.
Enjoy your Thursday.
