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

Happy 4th of July

Happy 4th of July
This pretty and patriotic arrangement is at my church.

Today we will be around town all during the day enjoying our small town.  Also remembering all those who died so that we may live in this great country.

This evening we will be at a BBQ with friends from church and topping the day off with fire works.
A very  happy day to you.

It is easy to take liberty for granted,
when you have never had it taken from you.

  8. hi Karen! Long time in finding you. I forgot the name of your regular blog, but the snapshopts one led me here. Is that you in a pink kayak? Pink? Yay!!! Hope you had a great fourth. I was so weak I had to just go to bed. I slept with the bangs and pops going on out side. There is this guy in our neighborhood, don't know him, that has been lighting off works for weeks now. Just one or two - so he was having a 'hay day' last night. I ? I just slept. Best sleep I have gotten this cycle. See ya more in a while. ♥
