I don't remember to write posts for Gratituesday very often. But yesterday, as we walked around Washington, DC, I was reminded of how blessed we are to live close enough to enjoy our Nation's capital on a regular basis. Washington DC truly is a beautiful city, rich with history. Yesterday was just about a perfect spring day. Abit breezy, but not unbearably so. Not too hot, not too cold. Bright and sunny! GORGEOUS!! Of course, as I thought about it, and remembered driving around for quite awhile to find a parking spot, and remembered the horrific, though not unexpected, traffic we experienced a few days ago when we took the girls on our "driving tour" of DC. I was also reminded of how blessed we are to not HAVE to go into DC, or any other big city, every day, or even every week. I feel so thankful today to have the opportunity to live in a country setting, but close enough to appreciate many of the great historic landmarks of our country. We live within easy day-trip distance of Philadelphia, New York City, Gettysburg, etc. My parents live within easy day-trip distance of Antietam, Baltimore and Washington DC. We are truly blessed!
