The Fourth of July will soon be here!!  What a holiday to celebrate America, my home!!  To me, the 4th of July means. . .freedom. . the bravery and commitment of our  soldiers and veterans. . .respect for our flag. . .thankfulness for all of the blessings we have as Americans. . .Image      

parades. . .fireworks. . .homemade ice cream and watermelon. . .swimming. . .building a sandcastle. . .Image     

family cookouts and picnics. . .carnival rides and cotton candy. . .the thrill of seeing our flag as it passes by. . .Image             

childhood memories of my parents and the values they taught me. . .not just by their words but by the lives they lived. . .I will soon be heading to New Mexico with my grandchildren to celebrate the Fourth of July.  We will be doing all of the above as we celebrate with my youngest son and his family as well as with my sister and niece.  I hope you have a wonderful holiday, dear friends, as we celebrate America!!

  1. Hello dear Vicki…thank you for bringing some ‘princess’ into my life today. I’m going to keep this close to my heart while at my job today, where there they do their best to make me feel like the little cinder girl.

    Blessings for a crowning-glory day,
