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!

All Packed

I may not sleep tonight due to the giddy excitement of my trip starting tomorrow!  A lot of firsts: going south of the equator, 17+ hours in the air on the second leg of the trip, and nothing to compare South Africa to.  I am thankful to have read the book, "Cry, the Beloved Country", by Alan Paton, several years ago, which is rich in prose and filled with Biblical references and allusions, and written before the passage of a new law (1948) institutionalizing apartheid, which of course, is no longer. A classic work of love and hope, and am so looking forward to the adventures that courageous and dignified country has to offer!
