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.

I'll be back

Another picture from a walk by my parents house.
✿     ✿     ✿     ✿
46 degrees this morning.  It was cloudy but took a long my umbrella which was a good thing because soon after I started walking it started to rain and there was a light rain during all of my walk.

I walked around the Farm Loop and a loop around town.  When I walked past the diary farm, the few cows that were in the front field were headed back to the barn all in a line.  Guess they didn't want to be out in the rain.

The two horses Faith and Grace at Farmer Bill's place must not like umbrellas because when they saw me walk by both of them ran away behind the barn.  They usually come up to the fence to see me.

It was nice hearing the rain on my umbrella. : )

Walked 6.2 miles.

We both got new cell phones today.  We got rid of our tracfones and both of us have our first smart phones.   Our son David will be so proud of us. : )

Last week when we were up at my parents house we took them for a ride on one of the nice sunny days.
Stopped to take this picture of the island in a lake.
And thought how neat it would be to live on that island.  I zoomed in for a closer look.
This is another picture I took walking from the cabin we stayed at to my parents house.

My Dad went to the doctor today and the news was even worse than we expected.
I will be taking a break from blogging for a while.   Please continue to keep us all in your prayers. 
I will try to get around to visit you once in while and I will be back to blogging one day soon.

God Bless you all.
