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!

Banner Day: Ryan's Good Appointment with Dr. Ord and CamPowerForAll Swim Meet

The day started out with an "all clear and all good" exclaimed by Dr. Ord on Ryan's mouth/tongue! Those were fabulous words to our ears and such a sigh of relief... Whew! We are very thankful and hope and pray this continues with each follow-up appointment.

Later in the afternoon, Ryan went to help set up and work the 9th Annual CamPowerForAll swim meet at the Crofton Swim and Tennis Club with Carol and BJ Diamond and the crew. It's one of Ryan's favorite events to help and volunteer at the "souvenir" stand each year.  This is a great community event with novice swimmers from five local pools that helps support the Child Life Services at the Johns Hopkins University Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Department (where Cam Diamond was treated for Cancer). There was high level energy and excitement all meet long, and I was happy to witness the swimmers and their parents (many who have never met Cam and who would have been 18 years old this year), enjoying their swim events, but more importantly, writing cards to the sick kids on the unit(s) and buying CamPowerForAll gear! A sincere collaborative event for all!

BSoleille! The bright side of raising funds through:
