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!

21 Years and Looking Ahead 

I like milestone posts and today is a double one. This post marks 1900 blogposts since I began in 2012, and I’ve learned so much about life, myself, wordplay (and word smithing) in the almost six years of nearly daily blogging. A journey in itself. 

But the second milestone is much larger. Twenty one years ago today, Ryan, (Focused Warrior) was diagnosed with Leukemia. He was two years and two months old, a baby really. But I think it’s good to look back at times to see just how far you’ve come. And for Ryan, he’s looking ahead to continued health and good things coming his way. He definitely deserves it for sure. 

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the gigantic village of thousands of people who helped along his/our childhood cancer journey and beyond, and for this, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

BSoleille! The bright side of being deeply grateful...priceless
