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!

Five Hundred Twenty-Five Thousand Six Hundred Minutes - How do You Measure a Year?

On this rainy mid-Atlantic last day of 2018, don't we all need to stop for a moment and ponder on how we measure the year? "The Rent" song Seasons of Love lyrics suggest; in daylights, in sunsets, in midnights, and cups of coffee; along with inches, miles, laughter and strife. I believe we all have measured a little bit of each throughout 2018, and the next year will have a bit of the same, though I hope it's measured in good health, happiness, and making good on our truest wealth...time.

Today's blogpost is my 2,264th one culminated over seven years (began 1/1/2012). My posts have almost been daily, and for sure the last 31 days since I took part of a blogger challenge to post each day in December. I kind of liked my "built in" days off over the past couple of years, and hopefully, will continue that style in 2019. I have really enjoyed the labor of love in posting, and today, reflecting upon a good year in my family's health, adventure travel beyond my wildest dreams, and catching up with a lot of folks throughout the past year I may have lost contact with through the previous years. They are all blessings and I am forever grateful for each friendship that continues to endure since "yesterday, today and tomorrow."

I'd like to start 2019 checking out the daylight (I love those January skies), drinking lots of hot tea (sorry, not a coffee drinker), drive thousands of miles (that's for the whole year) and be mindful of spending my time wisely. That's how I'll measure the year ahead...

I hope everyone reading this last post of 2018 will have a Happy and HealthyNew Year and Thank You for being a part of this journey.

BSoleille! The bright side of Seasons of Love...
