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!

Quiet Moments

An unplanned trip to Cleveland yesterday yielded some quiet moments with my Mom, and I am thankful to have make the trip. Her communication skills are very limited now, but she seems stronger than we think she is, and ultimately, seems happy "enough" to muscle through her days. Of course, many emotions flow through my veins, which I believe, is perfectly "normal" in witnessing the slow deterioration of my mom and the other nursing home residents as well. 

I am truly amazed at the workers who take care of the elderly, anywhere on the planet, because some of them are worth their weight in gold...hands down!
