I am so blessed to live in America. To be a military wife and daughter and to have served in the military myself. I am proud to be raising 2 children to respect their country and those who have served and are serving. To show respect for the flag and the symbols of this great country. They may not understand the whys right now, but they will appreciate it (just as I did) when they get older. I love seeing my hubby leave for work in his uniform every morning...not only because I love a man in uniform (and my hubby looks darn good in his) but because I am so proud of the fact that he is going to work to do what he does for our country, our children and our Freedom. I love the sound of jet noise...we live right near the base and I loved sitting outside this morning with my coffee listening to the sounds of the F-15s taking off to perform flyovers for various celebrations in the area. I stop and pause every time I hear one overhead...almost everyday...that is the sweet sound of Freedom...the beauty of America.
We will be heading over to a friends house for a BBQ this afternoon. We enjoyed our local fireworks display last evening. Despite a passing shower towards the end, they were awe inspiring. I packed a picnic and we enjoyed the evening with some friends. Bob and I even got in an exhausting game of monkey in the middle with the kids! It was fun and reminded me that I need to let go and live a little more often.
I hope you all enjoy your day. I thank each and every military member for their service and each and every military family for your service and support. By the way...my personal hero is the one in the pic above on the right....got to love that guy.
God Bless America,
