Sterling and I wanted to wish everyone a Happy 4th of July. Hope everyone has a safe one, especially setting off their own fireworks!!! Due to my history of strange and unusual accidents, it has been strongly recommended by my husband I steer clear of setting off my own !! I told him "I will do my best"...knowing I will set a few off !! I cannot help myself. All I can say is I am spending it quietly with my family at my parents home out in the country. I am hoping to catch the Lunar Eclipse tonight as well, I am more excited about the eclipse then the fireworks !
It still amazes me how much the world and the USA has changed in the past 4 months, first the pandemic and now the racial tension, protests against law and order ,riots and tearing down the statues of our forefathers who built this "great" nation. Dishonoring them in the name of their ideals of "freedom". My Irish grandmother said good comes out of change and you must get use to it. I fear that not much good will come out of these changes from today's climate, I could be wrong, and hope I am, but it is how I feel today on our Independence day. I do not feel like a proud American....more like a sad one. I am not proud of how we are behaving, the means to their messages is all wrong and their actions are not honorable. But I will focus on spending quality time with my parents and family in the woods and just enjoy the day. We love all of you and please stay safe out there !!
