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!

Window of Thanks

In the next 12 hours we will be arriving at the University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore, Maryland, as Ryan will undergo 10 hours of surgery to remove the cancerous tumor from his tongue. As "we" face this adversity, we are truly humbled by the out pouring of concern and prayers as we march down this new cancer journey with Ryan. 

Life is quite remarkable with its twists and turns in all human lives, so we are not alone on this front. But for today, Ryan, and his sister, Olivia, are the true heroes on how they endured as kids through childhood cancer, and now as young adults, hitting the battlefield once again. They are amazing and make the most of each precious day (we all need to take pointers from these positive young folks!)

For one and all prayer warriors, please send positive thoughts for Ryan; a good night sleep for the surgeons (and all OR medical team personnel), with no headaches and a clear mind to start his case (and their wives cutting their steaks or apples tonight); plus strength for the parents/family to get through an arduous day on May 27, 2016. We are humbled and grateful!

On behalf of my entire family, THANK YOU!!!

BSoleille! One. Day. At. A. Time. 


My photo is my kitchen window with beautiful flowers for the simple happiness in life.

Last week I spoke with a friend who had the same surgery at MMC, and I told her about Ryan. She said if he has the same Doctor she had -- I said he does -- she said that he will be fine. Please from her lips to God's ear. Prayers for all.
