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.

Lunch out

We left early this morning for a trip down to Howard County again.  This time Ken was going to the train show in Tomonium and he dropped me off at Mary Jo's house.  Her son and daughter were there too and we had a nice morning chatting and catching up.

I emailed Christina (Pastor's wife, my Sunday school teacher and friend) that I was coming down to see Mary Jo and that we were going to go to out to lunch and asked if she would like to come too.  Also to ask the other ladies from class if they would like to come join us because it would be nice to see them all again.  Not only did Christina ask them, but she put a sign up sheet out in the foyer of church.  I even made the bulletin with my picture in it.  : )  Wow!!
Christina ended up not being able to make it but 9 people signed up and we met at Applebee's and had a fun time talking, laughing and catching up.  It touched my heart that so many were willing to give up part of their Saturday to have lunch with me.  Nice to know they still think of me after being away all this time.

I went back to Mary Jo's house again after lunch and Ken picked me up later after he left the train show and we headed back home. 

It was a lovely day and a memory maker.

It was nice to get back home again where a traffic jam is 4 cars lined up. : )
I was having such a nice time that I forgot all about taking pictures.

Hope you enjoyed your day.
happyone : )
No matter what looms ahead,
if you can eat today,
enjoy today,
mix good cheer with friends today,
enjoy it and bless God for it.

  2. Gestures like these really do make one's day. I remember the best times I have had with my friends are those spontaneous calls and plans that just happen without waiting out on them, without too much planning. I am glad you had a good day, Karen.
