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!

Unexpected Surprise on the Soccer Pitch

While filling in on the fall high school/middle school this soccer season, I was assigned to a local girls middle school near my home. I have not refereed a girls middle school game in a few years, so the girls were unknown to me until my eyes glanced at the Coach - Anna Doyle and her assistant Coach Teresa Doyle Watkins. They are a blast from the Pheen past (Freestate Phoenix) and we haven't seen each other in several years! Anna's 13 year old granddaughter is on the school's team, and I have not seen her since she was three! I am thankful we had a great "reunion" catching up before the game and it was great seeing Tee's (Teresa's) 9 month old baby boy.

Anna's coaching was "spot on" since her team won 13-0 over the visiting team! Kudos to Anna and her players, and it was a fun match to referee!
