Every Friday for 6 weeks, I will be posting blessings that I am thankful for.
In honor of the July 4th Holiday, I'm keeping the 1st week simple.
Today the blessing I want to count is that of Freedom. The freedoms that we take for granted. The freedoms of free speech, free choice, and in freedom of how we live ( as long as we are not endangering ourselves or others). It is also a time to be grateful to those who gave their lives to protect these freedoms.
We just came back from seeing our local fireworks. Lee Greenwood's God Bless The USA is a staple in the background music. This verse pretty much sums up how I feel today.
And I'm proud to be an American,
where at least I know I'm free.And I won't forget the men who died,
who gave that right to me.
My 10 year old son, also decided to participate. This is what he is thankful for.
