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

Day Three of Thanks

Giving Thanks Post Day 3

I am thankful that Ken is my husband and also my best friend.
He is a kind, caring, and loving husband and 
it is a joy to be his wife and to spend my days with him.
We have been together over 43 years and though there have been some hard times,
there have been many many more good times. : )
Going through the hard times has strengthened our marriage.

I am thankful that Ken is such a handy man to have around too. : )
He can fix almost anything!
He amazes me with the things he can and does do.

Ken is always willing to help out others too whenever he can.
If something needs to be done you can count on him.
I thank God every day for Kenny
and believe by putting God first in our lives
He has blessed us beyond measure.

This thankful day post I chose Kenny
because it is his birthday.
Happy Birthday Kenny.
I love you. : )

  2. Hi Karen, I think you are pretty lucky to have found Ken ... not to mention he loves trains!!!! Your thankful posts are neat ... I will look forward to more. Hope you are having some luck on getting a new camera. I miss your walk photos! Have a great day!

  3. What a lovely post. And Happy Birthday to Ken. I do like your idea of giving thanks in your posts. I have a notebook (I have a thing about notebooks) and every night I write down 2 or 3 things from the day that I'm thankful for. That's to counteract my tendency to moan!

  4. Sending 'Happy birthday' wishes to Ken!

    I have a wonderful husband and he's my best friend too, so I can totally appreciate how you feel about your husband, and how grateful you are for him.
