Happy 4th of July!!!!


I hope that you and your family are having a safe and fun 4th of July, for those of you who are American, or live in the USA. For the rest of you, Happy Friday!

Today is such a special day for me, and for my family. My dad and his dad were both in the Air Force, and I have a brother and brother-in-law who used to be in the Navy. I currently have a brother in the Army. I'm very proud of those associations. I am grateful to all those who have died, down through the centuries, to preserve our freedom. I am so grateful to all of the men and women who are currently serving in our Armed Forces. I am grateful to have been born in a country with such freedoms, and at such a time too! But most of all, I am grateful to my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, for dying on the cross, giving His life, so that I might be free. I am thankful for my husband, and my two boys. I am thankful for my husband's job that allows wonderful benefits for our family. I am thankful for both sets of parents, hubby's and mine. I am thankful for so much today, as I think of the sacrifices that have been made for me, and for my country.

What are you thankful for today?
