American flags are flying everywhere I look today. The Independence Day celebration's started in the afternoon with lots of firecrackers. It rained for a while earlier today but it is clear now. The night sky will light up soon as it is nearly time for the big aerial displays to begin. My poor dog Jellybean is already hiding in the closet. It is going to be a long night for her!
What a wonderful day to remember our soldiers with gratitude and thanksgiving. They are living in harms way in far away places and putting their lives on the line in order to keep us safe and secure. They are not able to be home today to celebrate with their families and friends. I hope the day will come soon when we can bring them all back home! In the mean time I will say thank you for all you do. May God bless you and keep you safe.
