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 walk in the sun

When I got up early this morning it was 22 degrees and still dark.
I've been walking in the dark with rain and clouds for quite a while.
It was supposed to be a sunny day and I thought it would be so nice to walk
in the sun so I postponed my walk till after breakfast when
the sun was over the mountain and left for my walk at 8:45.
It was up to 34 degrees by then too.
So nice to have the sun out and see a bright blue sky.
Walked through town, up Barn Sale Rd and down towards Happy Trails,
then turned around and walked back to town.
When back to town I spotted my walker friend Kathy who I haven't seen
since November.  I caught up to her and we gave each other a big hug.
I've been worried about her and praying for her because she was
diagnosed with Lupus.  
On a return trip to the doctors last month when they did more blood
tests there was no sign of the Lupus. 
Lots of people prayed for her and Praise God He answered our prayers.
Kathy has been walking later in the morning now so that's why I haven't seen
her in a while.  So glad I walked later today to find out the great news.
I walked 3 miles before I saw her and 3 miles with Kathy.
💙     💙
Ken went up to the new house site to work on his rock wall
but he came home at 11:15.
He is still not 100% and was getting tired so didn't stay all day.

After lunch we went to Walmart to do food shopping.
Not my favorite chore and was glad to get it done and get everything put away.

I called my friend Bernice today and we had a nice long chat.
 Life is Good
Count your blessings and have a happy day.

Kathy must have been so happy to receive that news and know that so many people were praying for her. That is wonderful.
Pretty photos from your sunny walk. The sky looks very similar here today.
Hope Ken is feeling all better soon.

Such wonderful news about Kathy! Praise God!

It’s looking more springy down your way than it is in my corner.

The clear blue sky looks wonderful, but more wonderful is that Kathy does not have Lupus.
