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!

Building Resilience

When life throws you lemons, start making the lemonade. But what else can we do to combat sadness or worry? I am thankful for strong bonds with family and many friends spread throughout this big bad world, as each bond strengthens my resolve to do better and be better. Helping others is a good one too, as well as exercise and creating something beautiful on a daily basis. Everyone has moments in life that are devastating and "just not right", but it is the developing of different coping mechanisms that help to cross over those days that just may "stink"!  It's all about building resilience. 

BSoleille! The bright side of a lot of "lemonade!"
