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!

Unspoken Bonds

The harrowing moments of difficult hospital stays is not easy for anyone. The minutes and hours tick by slowly with only the sounds of the IV pumps and a whole host of other equipment keeping your loved one safe and on a road to recovery. That comfort level of "just being" with a loved one and sitting close is all that is needed to feel that secure tight bond, and really, there is nothing like it. 

So, Ryan's update today:

At 6:15 AM today, Ryan was moved from ICU to a step-down unit. This is great news and his progress has been good to see.

The doctors are pleased...and we are treasuring each positive day. Incremental improvement...

Thinking of, and praying for, all the Tomoffs! Might be a whisper How! How! in there, too...
