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!

Remember those vacations of years past, and last year a bust for many? Hopefully, not this year as we are ready to move about the cabin...and more. A trip to our beloved Kelleys Island, Ohio, was a perfect segue to get back on the horse of being with our tribe of family and friends. Except for one day of liquid sunshine, we had a grand week of stellar sunshine (mostly) with fun, laughter, bike rides, visits and the KI annual 5K and 10K races. A good time was had by all.
Laughter...what a great medicine!

Bill and I had so much fun writing in the Akimbo's Writing In Community 1 and that signed up for WIC2 over two months ago. We 'met' people all over the world writing powerful words with the hope that those words will be published. It's a big deal for that day to finally arrive and I would like to shout out Susan Fritz with her moment this past week.
Hot off the press is Susan Fritz’s memoir Everything Relevant Has Already Been Said. A
Cancer Love Story. Susan’s book was the first thing packed in my backpack for our vacation. Now it’s a toss up on who reads it first and we are “fighting” over who gets that pleasure. From the photo below, it looks like Bill has the advantage. Not so fast.
