Fireworks & Family Fun
The 4th is a day to celebrate our country's freedom. We spent a great day with family and, although my nine year old and her cousins would rather have had pasta and meatballs for dinner, even they enjoyed our barbecue today! I think the enjoyment had more to with the fact that they spent a good part of the day swimming, playing games and playing guitars. But for me as long as there's a smile on my daughter's face then there's a smile on mine too.
Tonight as I watched her face and reaction to the brilliant fireworks that lit up the night sky, I realized that we are so fortunate to live in a country where we have so many opportunities and the freedom of choice.
I hope you all had a wonderful 4th and thank you to all of you who serve our country every day so that we all may enjoy the freedom that is America!
