Happy Birthday America

Whatever your plans I hope you have a safe, blessed holiday. As I am typing this fireworks are going off all around the neighborhood. Rusty is barking as he doesn't like the noise. Kuma is asleep under the diningroom table. William is asleep. I am staying up to make sure the noise from the fireworks doesn't upset the animals. The fireworks from the neighbor in front are beautiful. The neighborhood kids can be heard oooing and aahhhing over each one. What a blessing to live in America. Free to celebrate or not celebrate our country's birthday. Free to sleep or stay awake. Free to make noise or be quiet. America may be old, tired, and over budget but she keeps on giving and boy is she beautiful. I love every inch of her. Happy Birthday America and may you have many, many more.

Amen, Peggy... This was well-written. We sometimes don't appreciate the fact that we do have freedom...

Hope your animals aren't too spooked by the fireworks.

Have a great 4th.
Hugs,
Betsy

Being a Veteran I've been to other countries. Both to live and temporary duties. America is, by far, the very best I've been in. Happy 4th to all.

Have a blessed day as we all Celebrate our country as we continue to pray for our people, soldiers, and leaders. I pray daily for our leaders that the Lord will guide them and our nation will be a true Christian nation! I love the pictures of your "Hidden Haven." Will you be returning to your mountain cabin when winter comes?

Happy 4th Peggy!
Molly doesn't like the fireworks either.

Only you dear Peggy, would worry about your animals.

Love you,
