For my United States readers….HAPPY 4th of July!!
As frustrated as I get with politics, I have to say I’m very happy I live in the United States. I’m lucky in that through my family history, I have ties to many important times throughout the United States’ history.
Samuel Huntington, a relative of mine from my Mom’s side, signed the Declaration of Independence.
I had a several greats back Grandpa fight in Gettysburg for the Union during the Civil War.
I had grandparents that made the trip across the Atlantic from Sweden in the early 1900s.
How awesome is it that my family has been a founder of the this nation and has fought in great wars for this nation and left their own country to be a part of this nation? How could I not love a country my family is so connected to?
I love all the typical 4th of July events, fireworks, picnics, family and friends but what I love the most is the freedom that allows me to choose what I want to do in my everyday life.
Happy 4th readers!!
