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!

Jersey Boy

I would like to end the week on a positive note regarding my son, Ryan. Thankfully, he is feeling better with his healing neck and gaining strength each day. He felt so good today that he wanted to "organize" his sports jerseys from basketball to baseball to football to hockey, as he likes to wear the jersey that fits his mood for the day, or maybe that "his" team won a decisive game recently (like in the last day or so!).  If a favorite team/player is playing, he will wear that jersey to cheer on that team or player. And because he is such a sport nut, he enjoys learning and knowing the stats on the players, teams, owners and managers from across the nation covering NBA, MLB, NFL, NHL, college hoops/football and the EPL (English Premier League) too.

He is an equal opportunity sports fanatic, and truly very knowledgeable about anything that has to do with a ball (football, baseball, soccer, basketball), stick, puck and hoops. He has even predicted the outcomes of Superbowls fairly early in the season (even predicting the final scores!), along with selecting the NCAA College Hoop Champion, and, most recently, bet $10 in Las Vegas in August of 2015 (before the NBA season started) that the Cleveland Cavaliers would win the 2016 NBA title, and they did. His winnings....$32!

BSoleille! The bright side of being a "student of sport".
