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!

To the Moon...

I recently read about former astronauts and how they felt about our world from looking at it from afar...as in out of space! Interestingly, they all "agreed" that ugly human behaviors (i.e., hatred, racism, pestilence, you get the story) seem to melt away and that in the infinity of space, "not much matters" on that "speck" of blue so far away in the distance - our earth! Can you imagine? The closest the "regular Joe/Josie" gets to "out of space" is maybe flying on an airplane at 40,000 ft., and that the thrill of flying, (maybe going to a foreign land, or even a visit home to loved ones) makes us realize how small we are compared to the earth, and then the infinite universe.

I certainly wish this attitude of how these former astronauts felt would transfer to those undesirable minds who commit to acts of terror and destruction of ruining lives, communities and nations around our precious earth. This senseless and deplorable thinking and action must be stopped. As a world, we must believe that good wins over evil, as Belgium has so eloquently displayed today in the wake of the atrocities yesterday. Thoughts and prayers to the many families who lost loved ones....
