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

Woke up this morning to a thunder storm and didn't think it a good idea to walk in it so no morning walk today.

After breakfast we headed back to church and worked on the Fingerprint Ministry putting the book of Romans in Spanish together.  As usual I worked on a staple machine which is my favorite part to do.  For those new to reading my blog click HERE to learn about the Fingerprint Ministry.  Worked at the church from 9:00 to 12:30. 

It's been a cloudy day all day with periods of misty rain.  I did a little more weeding in the afternoon.

After supper I went for just a short 2 1/2 mile walk.  Not a long walk but it felt good to at least get a little walk in.

Kathy, if you are reading this, does this quilted table runner look familiar?  It is the one you made for my mother in 2004.  : ) 
The other day I posted a picture of my grandmother (mom's mom) and said I didn't think it looked like her.  This is how I picture my grandmother when I think of her. : )
And that ends my post for today.
Hope your day was a happy one.

she had been waiting to see just you all day 
and now the day was complete."

  1. Love that quote at the end -- every child should feel that kind of love and acceptance. Don't you love the apron she's wearing? They were so common back then, and they did such a good job.

  2. Love reading all of your posts and enjoy all your pictures. I remember Grandma like she is in the picture too. I miss her.

  3. Love the quote at the end of your post. So true!

  4. The photo of your grandma looks a lot like mine. She was always so loving. She'd draw pictures for me to color. She'd cut the crusts of my sandwiches. I remember sitting in her home and listening to her records of Tennessee Ernie Ford and the Lennon Sisters. I'm glad you were able to get your walk in, even if it was short. Have a great day.

  5. Glad you were able to get a walk in. When I take a 2 1/2 mile walk, I feel like I've really done something. Ha!
    That is a nice photo of your grandma. I don't think I see a resemblance either. Love the quote. That is the type of grandma I strive to be.

  6. Hello, the weather has been so stormy lately. I have not been walking outside. Your grandmother was pretty, I always enjoyed going to see my grandmother. Great quote.
    Happy Friday, enjoy your weekend!

  7. sounds like you accomplished lots at church - a blessed ministry! The quilted table runner is lovely and that is a sweet photo of your dear grandma.
    Best wishes!

  8. Just look at that sweet grandmother! I wish we would get some storms or at least a little rain here. Our temps have been in the high 90's and dry.
