Have a happy, blessed Fourth of July!

2012I hope that everyone has a wonderful, safe Fourth of July! We are spending our Fourth in South Beach in Miami, but we live in fabulous little St. Cloud, a town that sort of has the feel of Tracy, CA, where I grew up.  I feel truly blessed to have been fortunate enough to have been able to retire here in Florida and have exciting places nearby to visit.003 (2)

I’m proud to live in the USA, and on the Fourth of July, I think a great deal about what it means to be a citizen of this wonderful country. Sometimes, I believe a lot of us feel frustrated and glum because there are so many issues that divide us as a country and we get angry at ‘the other side’ because they don’t agree with us or think like us. But it’s our differences and our freedom in being able to express our beliefs without persecution that has made this land so special and unique. If the time comes we cannot speak with civility to one another, especially when we don’t agree, I think that is the time we need to reevaluate our belief system and reconsider what freedom means to each and every one of us. We must be ever vigilant to preserve our freedoms and always willing to preserve our freedom of mind as well as that of our speech.

2008 I’d just like to say once again, have a happy Fourth of July with family and friends. Be safe and take a moment to think about the men and women who fight to keep us free. I love living in the United States and I hope that it means as much to you all as it does to me. Have a fun Fourth and thanks for stopping by. If you have something to share about your Fourth of July, past or present, I’d love to hear from you.

On the lighter side, I’m going to try my first margarita with a beer floater in Miami! Yikes!
