"It's a great day to be alive. You know the sun's still shining when I close my eyes!"
So that song by Travis Tritt (one of my favorites It's a Great Day to be Alive ) came to me this morning at my kitchen table. We had an early start as P-Pa headed out early to go pick up the Firecracker!! She is going to hang with this Grandpa today. Her other Granddad takes care of her a lot and she seems to enjoy these old guys!!! And I think they might just kind of like her too!!
It is hard telling what their day will entail...but I can bet they will have fun! You know looking at sheep and cows...eating oatmeal cookies...the life is good stuff if you are a P-Pa or Izzy! Plus P-Pa will have a secret weapon--BO! That seems to be who Miss Isabel thinks should be coming to visit her whenever any of us come. She loves those dogs. Actually those animals...
So I just want to say it is a good day! It is Friday and Payday! (means I have a job and am thankful). Get to see my granddaughter and probably my kids. Have a husband who 30 years ago today asked me to marry him and I am thankful I said yes. See this stopping and counting your blessings thing...I know you have some too! Make it a great day to be alive!!
Psalm 100: 1-2 in My Living Bible says...
So join in..."It's a great day to be alive...I know the sun's still shinin when I close my eyes..." JOIN IN!
"Shout with Joy before the Lord, O earth! Obey him gladly; come before him, singing with joy."
My folks would have been married 50 years today...wish they were here to sing with!!
