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

A new resisdent in Heaven

⛅     ⛅
A nice sunny morning with a temperature of 46 degrees.
Walked around town this morning, both cemeteries and 
the ball park loop.

I'm walking down from the cemetery in this picture and you 
can see my shadow as I'm taking the picture.
It was a quiet walk around town and I didn't see anyone else.

I walked 6 miles

First I'd like to thank you all who have prayed for my mother,
wished her well, and sent her cards.
She had Alzheimer's and was in a nursing home in NY for the past 15 months.
Last night about 11:30 God took her home to Heaven.
It is sad that she is no longer here but I can't help but be happy
for her now that she has met Jesus.
  She had a strong faith and it saw her though till the very end.
I have my mother to thank for leading me to Jesus too and for that I will
be eternally thankful.

John 14:1, 2, 3
Let not your heart be troubled:
ye believe in God, believe also in me.

In my Father's house are many mansions:
if it were not so, I would have told you.
I go to prepare a place for you

And if I go and prepare a place for you,
I will come again, and receive you unto myself;
that where I am, there ye may be also.

When walking this morning I found a penny.
I know it sounds silly but I thought,
A penny from Heaven.  Thanks Mom.

I hope your day is a happy one.

Karen -  Not many cars where I live.  Cars and trucks do pass me on the main road but there are wide shoulders.  Once I get off the main road there are not many cars at all.  Sometimes just one or two along the whole loop.  Those that do pass wave.


  1. Oh Karen, when I saw the title my heart sunk a bit. I am sorry for your loss. It isn't easy to lose our moms. Alzheimer's is a tough thing and I believe there is a sense of peace to know they no longer have to struggle with it. So nice that you and your mom both share a deep faith. I know that is a great comfort. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. Hugs to you.

  14. I am so sorry, but sort of understand how you can feel happy for her to be in such a better place.

    I ask Roger the other day if we were taking off to go somewhere, where would you like to be going. His answer, 'With you, to heaven.' I think you are either the first or second person that I have shared that with.
