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!

Turnpike of Winter

When you live in a state or region of the country that gets legitimate four seasons of weather, doesn't winter seem like a toll road or turnpike to warmer days of spring, summer and early autumn? No one likes to pay the tolls of the turnpike, but we have to, and only use it to get to your true destination.  The same goes for winter (except those who love the cold and snow, I apologize). We need to get through cold, sleet, snow, and sometimes even a blizzard, to get to those sweet days of spring. Once we gut out the dark winter days, somehow we instinctively know that warmer days are ahead for lighter moods, and lighter clothes...and I am thankful for the "planning" down that turnpike to sun and fun!

BSoleille! The bright side of longer days (with sun) already...
