Happy July 4th, 2013!
I feel blessed to live in the United States.
We do not get to pick what country we are going to be born in … well, I guess sometimes our parents can … and if I were to choose where I would live?
I am fortunate to have the freedoms of my forefathers who fought so bravely to acquire them.
I live in a state where Bald Eagles nest and I can see them along the rivers. Seeing these majestic birds makes me pause in my tracks to watch them.
Before I lived in Minnesota, the only place I saw a Bald Eagle, was in a zoo.
It is not just about parades, fireworks, and eating … On this day, I will pause to give thanks for our country’s independence.
Stay safe and enjoy your 4th of July!
