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

An early morning walk is a blessing for the whole day.
~Henry David Thoreau

This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
Psalm 118:24

Happy Thanksgiving

 Psalm 95:2
Let us come before his presence with thanksgiving,
and make a joyful noise unto him with pleasure.

40 degrees this morning and cloudy when I walked.
Calm and very quiet around town.

Walked up town streets, both cemeteries and the ball park.

Saw both Joy and Rebecca out getting their early morning walk in too.

After the corn was cut down in the field there was lots of it left.
I saw today that it was rolled up and corn bales were made out of it.

I walked into the field to take this picture.

Walked 6 miles
Found a nickel and a penny.

The next decoration down the road it town is a wreath.

A pretty relaxing morning because I did most everything yesterday.

We had a lovely Thanksgiving!
So very nice to have everyone gathered around the table
enjoying not just the food but being thankful for
all we have.

I wrote out place cards for each person and wrote why I am
thankful for them and set the cards on their plates.

Liz was a tremendous help with everything which made
things so much more relaxed.

It's been a great day, everything is washed up and put
away and now I'm just going to read and have a nice quiet evening.

Thanks for stopping by.
Hope your day was a good one. 🙂
👩🏻‍🦳 happyone ❤️

You have created a beautiful life and your Thanksgiving sounds lovely. I wonder if you keep the coins you find on your walks in a special place. For me, it would be fun to see what my finds amounted to at the end of the year. Just for fun.
