Like Christmas, it comes around regularly. This time I thought I had plenty of time to finish my chores and yet, here it is and we are rushing to get everything done. It seems that has become normal.
But today I will take time to be thankful for living in this country. I have enough common sense to know there are some OTHER great countries in this world where the citizens have freedom, possibly more than the USA, but I do not live in one of those. I feel blessed to have been born in Gastonia, North Carolina, USA.
I am sure the Canadians are proud to be Canadians and they did not fight for their independence, it came naturally (as I understand it.) There are times I wonder how we would have fared waiting until we were GIVEN INDEPENDENCE.
Now I could be wrong in my history but that is my thinking. I am open to correction, and if wrong I will blame it on age.
Yes! Today I am proud to be an American.
Happy Fourth OF JULY to my fellow citizens. Have a great day and be thankful.
No matter how you celebrate. Remember how blessed we are.
