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 way to say I love you

It was 69 degrees and cloudy this morning when I headed out the door, but the sun was out and shinning not long after. 
I took the connect the paths route and didn't meet very many people along the way.  They are probably all at the lake.  This time of year the lake gets a bit crowded with the weather being so nice in the morning.  I prefer walking there with less people.
I saw a few rabbits along the path.  They usually sit very still as I walk by unless I stop and then they run to the higher grass.  One rabbit this morning actually hopped right up in the air and jumped into the higher grass.  It was funny to watch.  Wish I could have taken a video.  Heard but didn't see a woodpecker.
Everything is so lush and green and the different shades of green are so pretty.
I had a lovely walk once again.
I walked 6.5 miles.

Sunset 8:24
I took this picture of the Hens and Chicks in my front yard.  They are looking nice and healthy.  Notice the purple flowers in the picture too.  They are doing nicely also and spreading their purple color around my little front garden.
My husband Ken isn't one who says I love you often but he does nice little things for me all the time.  Just little things but special to me.  He knows I love York peppermint patties and today when I emptied his lunch box out there were two of the little patties sitting in there for me to find.  One of them had a little heart sticker on it (like the little heart candies) that said ONLY YOU on it.  I love the little things like this that he does for me.  It's his way of saying I love you. : )  I am blessed to have him for my husband.

Hope your Friday was a good one and you found many times to smile today.
Happyone : )
