My favorite holiday is upon us. The special day of the year where I can go all out with the Red, White and Blue! Although, I must admit that all year long I’ve got the Patriotic vibe going on in my home. I love it. So much so that my room is decked out with a Tommy Hilfiger bedspread, statue of liberty photograph and flag pillow. What can I say, I’m a succor for it. We gather together with friends and family and celebrate this amazing country that we live in.
Now everyday is a reminder of our families connection to our country. The flag that is neatly folded in a frame honoring my husband’s service, the uniforms hung neatly in the closet and the camouflage duffel bag leaning against the wall in his office. The strong feelings of pride that I have for my husband, his career and our country have never been stronger. Its hard, don’t get me wrong; and there are days that I just don’t want to do it – but that doesn’t mean that I don’t love it with all my heart.
I hope you have a wonderful day with family and friends. Celebrate the fact that we are here in this country with freedoms that many can only dream of. I know that times may seem dark, and the road ahead for our country doesn’t seem all that great for many of us. But I still believe in it with all my heart; and I pray continuously that God blesses us and shows himself to us even in the darkest of times.
