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!

Parent Weekend at JMU

It was parent "day" for us heading down to JMU for an early tailgate and football game at 1:30. A big win (40-13) over University of Albany and a visit with "The Best Daughter" made it an awesome day for sure!  

But I have to make one comment on the football team that was quite heartwarming to me. After each game, whether they win or lose, the entire team runs over to the end zone to "salute" the Royal Dukes Marching Band as a thank you to the band. They stand and sing the school's alma mater word for word and I think this is a fantastic gesture on the entire teams' part. I also believe the band works just as hard as the football team does too!

And FYI, this band will be one of the two college bands that have been selected to march in the Macy's Day Parade on Thanksgiving!  Go Dukes....
