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 happy day

Future Dandelions
♡     ♡     ♡     ♡
It was 60 degrees and cloudy this morning when I walked.  I walked around the two cemeteries and the loop behind the ball park and then around town.

Saw a few rabbits, lots of goldfinches and robins and a deer.

Passed by Janet and we said hi and good morning as she was getting into her bright yellow school bus to start her route.

This caught my eye this morning.  I thought, what a pretty tulip - looks more like a rose.
Enjoyed my morning walk as always. : )  So nice to be outside early in the morning.
I walked 6.1 miles.

The spaghetti dinner at church last night was very good and we had a very nice time.  We had a garden salad, our choice of marinara or meat sauce on the spaghetti, a roll and a few different desserts to choose from.  Sorry, no pictures, just forgot all about taking any.

Ken went up to HT to get some dirt for the raised garden beds and I took some chocolate chip cookies that I baked with me and went to Cherry Hills for a little singing and visiting with the residents there.  Remember the woman who I stayed extra with last week, well this week she accepted Jesus as her Savior. : )  Her name is Victoria. 

This afternoon I'm home doing this and that around the house. 
Ken must be enjoying himself up at Happy Trails because he's still there. : )

Hope your day is filled with happiness.
happyone : )

Be an angel to someone else whenever you can,
as a way of thanking God for the help your angel has given you.

Three Thankful Things
  1. Beautiful tulips 
  2. Victoria is saved
  3. An afternoon at home


  1. Your visiting Cherry Hills has already made a difference in Victoria's life!

    My sister's daughter and family lived in Frederick MD which is about 45 miles from DC where her son in law worked as an attorney. He has since retired and they have moved.

  2. We have some of those "future dandelions" here.:) Those, along with the wild onions, keep my husband busy mowing.:) Great ministry you have at Cherry Hills.

  3. What pretty tulips!
    and what a GREAT day!
    It has been a GREAT Day here too!

  4. What beautiful news! What joy.

    Your spaghetti supper sounds great...did you go with meat sauce or marinara?

    That tulip is really striking with its frilly edges and elegantly deep color.

  5. That is a very pretty and unique tulip.
    The spaghetti supper sounds delish and even nicer that someone else did the cooking.
    Lovely news about Victoria.

  6. so wonderful for Victoria
    Are those parrot tulips?
    Your church sounds wonderful
    happy for you

  7. So happy for Victoria!
