Gratitude Project : People

 Gratitude Project : People

These are my People.  Since all of my people are in different parts of the country right now - I had to go back to when were all able to get together for my photo choice today.

When the world shut down, I got lucky and they all migrated to my house. Which to me... was perfect.... I had them all under my roof!!  And I LOVED it!!!

Gratitude Project Day 15: Something someone did or made for you

 Gratitude Project Day 15: Something someone did or made for you:

Over my Years of working with Veterans - I have been given some amazing Coins - and I really love them. They each tell a story, and remind me of them - but I didn't have a great way to store them.

My family did this for me:

And I love it - I love the way I can display each one

Gratitude Project Day 13: Useful

 Gratitude Project Day 13 : useful

This one is kinda fun for me, just about everything in my life is useful in some way... Whether its work, play or just my viewing pleasure....

But for this prompt  I picked this... as my Useful..

What you see is a Truck and Trailer hauling hay... very useful - keeps my horses and cows fed. But! What you don't see... is the man in the truck... My husband. I think he might be the most useful of this whole set up ;-)   He willingly gets our hay, unloads it and sets it up so I can feed easily... Don't tell him... but I sorta like him ;-)

Gratitude Project Day 12 : Solitude

 Gratitude Project Day 12: Solitude

My favorite way to sneak away from it all is to head up to the High Country... find some snow  - and do a little hiking or snowshoeing. Then while I am there I try to pretend I am a famous photographer ( can you guess who? 😁 ) and see the landscape through Black and White.

Sometimes it works... other times.. Not so much, but either way I have gotten outside and gotten fresh air!

Gratitude Project Day 11

 Gratitude Project Day 11: 

One of the things I have always been grateful for is the ability to provide Veterans touched by War with a tangible hug, in the form of a Quilt. Specifically - A Quilt of Valor ( qovf.org) . I love that we can offer a thank you, a hug, and something to keep them warm.

We were able to honor this particular WWII Veteran this week - and I truly believe that smile says it all. And of course - that makes my month!

Day 9: A favorite way to recharge

Day 9: Favorite way to recharge.

Today I was going to show you the sunset from my deck - but.. it started snowing , and there is no sunset....I am cheating a little bit, and going back to a pre-snow day - to show you the sunset from my deck. 

It is one of my favorite ways to recharge, that along with hiking, brings me peace.

Although the snow is pretty too, it just doesn't have as many colors as this one...
