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!

Cam Diamond Invitational Swim Meet 2017

The Cam Diamond "novice" swim meet is typically held at the Crofton Swim and Tennis Club, but due to clogged drain pipe that is going to require a lot of TLC to remove it, the meet was, thankfully, held at the Crofton Country Club. Hundreds of kids participate in this novice meet and win beautiful ribbons that they may not win necessarily at other big swim meets in their division.

The Diamond Family has been hosting and raising funds since 2009 for the Johns Hopkins Pediatric Playroom, aptly named in Cam's honor! Tonight was no exception with kids helping kids which included: writing get well cards to young hospitalized patients ; a silent auction; 50-50 raffle and a table of CamPower products to purchase (tshirts, cards, buffs, swim caps and visors and more) for the swimmers and their families.

So hearty kudos go out to BJ, Carol, Amanda and Julia Diamond and their dedicated volunteers who "battled" the hot and humid afternoon to raise funds and spread the word about their mission to help a local family; maintain the Cameron Playroom at JH; secure funds for a scholarship for an Anne Arundel County Student pursuing a career in medicine, and a donation to CureSearch.
For more information check out their new name and website: http://campowerforall.org/

BSoleille! The bright side of a local family helping other local families!
