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!

The Butler

I recently went to see Lee Daniels, "The Butler", and I thought it was terrific! This true story about a black man from the cotton fields in the South,with no education, work his way to be the most beloved butler at the White House for eight presidents!  I really enjoyed the historical footage through the decades, plus the fantastic acting by Forest Whitaker (predicting an academy award nomination, at least). Oprah played his wife and she also did an admiral job (I had to get past talk show host mentality) and "let" her get into the character!  Good stuff and a great story in American History.
