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!

A Day in DC
Since it was such a nice day we walked down to the mall (lots of construction going on) and then walked through the Sculpture Gardens before walking across the street to the Archive Building. I kept telling Patti how wonderful they have made the displays for the Magna Carta, the Declaration of Independence and the US Constitution and encouraged us to go in. As we reached the Rotunda, we noticed a line and quickly learned that we were about to see the fifth page of the Constitution for the first time on display -ever-to celebrate the document's 225th anniversary. It is known as the transmittal page and signed by George Washington; it describes how the Constitution was to be ratified and put into effect. Today was its last day on display. Very cool indeed!
