Hi! Hope you are enjoying the 4th of July weekend. Since the 4th conveniently landed on a Sunday this year, it has turned into a 3-day celebration with lots of festivities tomorrow. Including the traditional parade.
Grateful for our freedom of this country & for those who fight to keep us safe.
An inspirational thought I included in our church newsletter I put together each month:
"You cannot be saved by valor and devotion of your ancestors. To each generation comes its patriotic duty, and upon willingness to sacrifice and endure, as those before you have sacrificed and endured, rests the national hope." Thomas Paine
Today I was completely teared up singing the National Anthem at church. When I was pregnant with Avery I remember the same wave of emotion when Bucky Covington got kicked off American Idol--but this morning clearly had much more meaning. ;)
Happy Independence Day!!
