Safe and Happy 4th!

Whether you are hosting the BBQ this year, or traveling to one, remember to not only bring a little something, but also have fun!  American’s work too hard as it is, you may as well enjoy the long weekend.  For those who are working, especially in the medical field, I hope you are able to find some rest this long weekend.

Especially to the soldiers fighting for the rest of us back home, you especially deserve a thank-you!

Remember to not drink and drive, and if you are setting off fireworks, to be safe!   Happy 4th!

Happy 4th to You & Yours!

It’s Independence day here in the US and most people are doing the bbq thing, worrying about how much food they should or shouldn’t cook.  I want to take a moment to remind us to remember what this day is really in celebration of and how much further we need to go in American and as Americans.  Equality is still being fought for, as is maintaining our freedom by those overseas and stationed here within the US borders.  It’s not a day to worry about how many Pinterest ideas you have for an American flag dessert or table scape; remember those who we have lost, are losing to PTSD and those who are braving the choice by enlisting.

For those sitting around enjoying a day off, reach out to those who may not have family in the area.  Fellowship with your neighbors, or make a new friend today.

Happy 4th of July everyone!   Stay safe, thankful and free.
