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's Get-Away Weekend

I'm thankful to be back in beautiful Old Town Winchester, Virginia, to be a volunteer with Special Love's Parent Weekend. This great weekend consists of bonding and connecting with parents of children with current childhood cancer patients, survivors and bereaved. A little bit of something offered to all who come including insurance issues (we could all use this one), relaxation techniques, a glamour institute, Pilates or just taking a stroll down Piccadilly Street in Old Town. I am thrilled to be part if this special group of very caring people who want to help others on their journey of dealing with pediatric cancer and all that it entails. 

BSoleille!  The bright side of "thanks and giving".
