oh America!


i love
holidays.
gatherings.
picnics.
bbq's.
campfires.
family.

this week i've been greatly blessed- not only was it the birthday of our great nation (so there was major celebration going on) it was also my family's reunion.

a coy-family reunion? well, it's a BIG DEAL.

i have brothers that live with their families in:
LA
Oregon
Baltimore

so that means that we rarely see one another. this was the 1st time in 3 years that we've all been together. new additions have been made to the family... like my sweet husband, a fabulous sister-in-law, 2 nieces and a new family pet.

it was a fabulous family gathering. i'm so filled right now.

and grateful.

grateful for the wonderful country where we live. grateful to be an American. grateful for grandpas who fought bravely in wars and for a dad who worked hard to take care of us all. grateful to the men who have given their lives for our freedom. grateful that we can worship the almighty God. grateful that America is still free and that each voice matters. grateful that i can make a difference. grateful that i have a family that loves and supports me. grateful.

i hope that each one of you had a splendid 4th of july... that it filled your cups to overflowing. GOD BLESS AMERICA.
