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 Twenty-Three of Thanks

Giving Thanks Day Post Twenty-Three
Sunshine and Rain

I am thankful for sunshine. : )
This morning it was 19 degrees when I went for my walk
and to feel the sunshine on my face was heavenly.
I  looked up at the sun with my eyes closed 
and said ahh, that feels sooo good.
I talk out loud all the time when I'm walking! : )
 In the morning the sun shines in the big front window
where there are two chairs
and it is so nice to sit there in the sun.
When I think of sunshine these words come to mind:
I think of sunflowers and daisies.

I am also thankful for the other side of sunny days
which are rainy days.
Walking in the rain is something I enjoy.
Love hearing the sound of rain on
corn fields
Rainy days are good for reading and knitting,
or cleaning
or baking.

Besides if we didn't have both rainy and sunny days
we wouldn't appreciate either one of them as much.

A happy day to you 
whether your day is sunny or rainy.
Enjoy it. 
happyone : )

  1. Beautiful post, Karen. Just what I needed today. Thank you.

  2. Hello, Sunshine and Rain are two things we need and would be hard to live without. Wonderful photo. Have a happy day!

  3. My day is cloudy and some would call it dreary,but I will not. I like all kinds of weather. Your 'thankful' posts are such a blessing to read.

  4. 19 degrees sounds too cold to me

  5. I love it that you talk out loud as you're walking along! Good idea!

  6. We had 30 degrees here this morning, and lots of sunshine today!

  7. Love the picture.. that sky is such a beautiful blue color!

    I too am thankful for sunshine , and rain. Though, mostly sunshine at this time of year :)
    Love the sun streaming through the windows when there is white snow on the ground... it makes the snow sparkle like diamond dust .

    Have a Happy Thanksgiving.


  8. Fun perspective with that photo. It is so cool that you are in tune with your world and that you often describe sounds.

  9. Hi Karen, Today is December 6, and your post here was about two weeks ago. Sometimes I put all my blogging on the back burner but when I'm back at it I always want to check out all the posts I've missed on Life is Good. You are an awesome blogger! In this post I think the tree and sky picture is great. And, going back to the future, so-to-speak, I've got to congratulate you on finishing out the 30 Thankful Days of November so well!


Hello my friend.
Thanks for stopping by.
I'm hoping you will leave a comment.
Thanks. : )
