Happy 4th of July


As we celebrate Independence Day in the United States, I have many things on my mind.

I am thankful that I can spend the day with my family, several generations actually, eating good food, drinking a few, and playing in the pool. I can do this knowing no one will try to invade the party or bomb us.

I am grateful that I live in a country where, though I do not agree with many things like the recent Hobby Lobby birth control issue, we can discuss it openly – even if I don’t agree, and no one is going to come and arrest me because I do not agree and I voice it publicly.

I respect those who sacrifice and are brave enough to put their lives on the line so I can do these things. My sincerest gratitude!

I value the freedom of expression we all have.

Just something I was thinking about . . .

    1. Thanks prior – I hope you did, as well! It thrills me to know something I wrote is rattling around in someone’s thoughts – that is the highest of compliments!! (Curious which post stuck with you 🙂 ) Looking forward to your return (and gives me time to make sure I have caught up on all your posts, as I get behind often LOL!) Have a great summer!! ☮
