July 4th Picnic

Ya'll, could it get anymore American than this!! We decided to celebrate this July 4th with a picnic at the park. As you can see, we brought all the red, white, and blue things we could lay our hands on with us. We had a great time, but it also got me thinking about how blessed we are as Americans.

Many of us forget to count our blessings. We have so much to be grateful for. Is America perfect? No. Is our president ideal? Not everyone thinks so. But our country is centered on liberty, freedom, and opportunity. I am so thankful to be born and raised in America. No matter how you feel politically, there’s always room for national pride. You don’t have to ignore the issues. We have the right and the freedom to stand up for what we believe in. But I think it is important to honor and celebrate our country’s accomplishments. After all, people fought and died for the life we lead today.
