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!

50 Years

It seems like 2014 is a big year for 50. It was 50 years ago The Beatles debuted on Ed Sullivan; the last of the baby boomers turn 50 this year; my Crofton community also turns 50 this year and my "lovey" that I carried when I was a child is also 50 years old!  My favorite Aunt Mary bought "Fifi" for me in downtown Cleveland, Ohio, originally wanting to buy me a doll on this particular shopping trip.  I would hear none of that and wanted the stuffed dog instead that was displayed in the window of one of the major department stores of the day. I do not recall her being disappointed in that I did not get the doll she set out to buy me, but rather impressed that I named my dog after her poodle, of course named "Fifi"!

BSoleille!  The bright side of cherishing a childhood memory!
