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!

Red Carpet Event with Tracy's Kids

Tracy's Kids Red Carpet event is one of my favorite events, especially selecting one of the award winning and nominated movies of 2017 to view after the Courage Awards are presented in downtown Washington, D.C.  This event benefits art therapy programs for children with cancer in seven hospitals in five states and D. C. Art Therapy helps young cancer patients cope with the emotional stress and trauma imposed by cancer and all the treatment it entails!

This year's winners for the TK Courage Awards, presented to a public person who has worked to address the challenges of childhood cancer went to Second Lady, Karen Pence, and Senator Claire McCaskill. These courageous ladies have worked tirelessly in their respective states to bring about awareness and perspective to all types of cancer, including Childhood Cancer and Art Therapy in Indianapolis (Mrs. Pence). Let me add, both ladies were excellent speakers and champions of bringing awareness of Art Therapy programs in hospital settings nationwide!

The most difficult part of the evening is the deliberation on what movie to see. Thankfully, we have seen a few already, so we narrowed it down to Fences with Denzel Washington (Bill and I), and Hell  or High Water (Ryan).  Any movie is great with Denzel...

BSoleille! The bright side of: And the winner is.... ticking off another award nominated movie of 2017 with Tracy's Kids!
