A daily record of gratitude; from quilting to photography to a mix of technology, books, movies and the musings of life!

Welcome to my Blog of my daily gratitude and photo of the day!

Since January 1, 2012, my goal is to write a daily sentence or two about gratitude of the day and to include one photo (at least) that I took that day (but will add others from time to time). It has defintely been a challenge every day throughout the past three years, but I welcome the challenge again this year 2015. I hope you will continue the ride with me!

Gettysburg!

Yesterday was my very first trip to Gettysburg and I was absolutely amazed and humbled at the magnitude of the 3 day battles that took place there 149 years ago this week (with same exact temperatures in the upper 90's 100's).

I am thankful to have gone with my friends Shelley and Janet, who is an expert in Civil War history and was our own personal guide! My photo is taken on the Union side near the Pennsylvania memorial. I believe our freedoms that we enjoy today hinged on those three battles, and that Lincoln saved the Union one year later!

BSoleille! Humbled at this very sacred place.
