God Bless America
Yesterday when I was at a huge party, I overheard someone saying she wasn't sure how she felt about celebrating "July 4th" but she was glad to be there enjoying the food. I thought I must have been hearing things but I wasn't. She looked young-in her early twenties. I guess I'm getting really old. I love America. I love all it stands for. I love our freedom. I love our generosity .We might make mistakes sometimes-but who doesn't?Thanks to all of those who fight to protect our freedom and for the freedom of others who do not share our good fortune. And to those before us,who gave their life so that we may be free- from the early days before our Independence, when our forefathers put everything on the line to start this new country- the greatest in the world, America.
Special thanks to gals Molly and Maggie for the gorgeous-and delicious sugar cookie flag.
