Happy Fourth of July!!!!!!

Amoung all the cheering and parades and fireworks and picnics and vacation days...there are soldiers far away from family. Fighting hard so we can enjoy this day.

And there have been many who have fought for us for generations.

In all the time of celebrating and thanking God for this amazing country we live in, please take a moment to check out this blog...


This girl, bravely, packed her two young boys, lived in a terminal for FIVE days to fly to be with her soldier who was in Germany for a week. I have cried lots of tears reading this saga...start at Part One, and read up. You will be glad you did, you have a better appreciation for our Soldiers and the Families that are keeping the family working all alone.

Thank God for our wonderful Country. Thank a soldier. And thank the families behind those soldiers.

"Land of the free because of the brave."
