{Day 65}

Swish, swish, swish.  Ta da! With each stoke a letter.  My name in lights…even just for a second.  I love sparklers.  But that isn’t all I love about today.  I am so grateful for what we celebrate in America every 4th of July.  Independence.  Freedom.  It is so easy to take what I have for granted.  I have been given so much.

Happy 4th of July everyone! May you all have a fun day celebrating the amazing gift of freedom we have.  Take time to enjoy the day with your family and friends and a moment to recount your blessings.  And yes even as an adult sparklers still haven’t lost their charm… 😀

    Happy 4th! By the way, where did you get those cute red shoes?!

      Thanks! I got those shoes years ago at a clothing exchange and I have NO idea where they are from. So sorry I can’t be of more help with that.

    Today a neighbor lady asked me to help her clean her house. She is having a party tomorrow and was gone over the weekend. She also has two little girls and is pregnant, bless her heart! So, even though it was the 4th, I went to help her get her house ready for the next days party. At the end she wanted to pay me, but I didn’t want her to–I just wanted to serve her. She insisted. Then I remembered… Miss Elaini’s project! 🙂

    All that to say, you can expect to be receiving a small donation from me.
