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 (or paragraph 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 definitely been a challenge most days throughout the past eight years, and welcomed the challenge again this year - 2020 - Covid and all. I hope you will continue the ride with me!

A good book finished

The Girls From Ames by Jeffrey Zaslow is a book about a 40+ years of friendship between 11 woman.  If you believe in the power of women friendships (as I do), I suggest to put this one on your reading list!  Interestingly, the book was written by a man, and he really nailed the nuances of friendships, especially through the years and across the miles, yet let the reader reflect and reminisce on their own friendships as well.  I found myself laughing and crying (yes, crying) through the book.  This particular microcosm of 11 friendships is what life is for many of us, and that's the blessing found throughout the book while getting to know the "girls" from Ames, Iowa!

Flowers sent from a great friend across the miles that I truly cherish!
BSoleille!  Finding the sunny side of friends!
