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!

We are Winners! Race for the Kids!

Or at least that is what the announcer said at the Race for Our Kids with the late Robert Damie (family sponsor) at the Maryland Zoo this morning. Since there was a snafu with the electronic racing equipment, no one ran either the 10K, 5K or 1 mile fun walk. We actually all ran and walked more; therefore awards couldn't be held. It was determined we were all winners—for participating in the great event to raise funds for the children at Lifebridge Health/Sinai Hospital in Baltimore, MD. 

Bill and I were signed up for the 5K (3.1 miles) and ended up with about 3.8. We were grateful for the extra steps. We were in the middle of the pack so no awards ever entered the picture for us! We were thrilled to be a part of a great cause. 

As part of the race fee, there was a yummy breakfast by The Classic Catering People and entrance to the zoo. Since we had obligations at home on the calendar, we only snuck in seeing the African Penguins, a snow owl and a big fat porcupine.
