“You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4th, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.” — Erma Bombeck
Last day in the office before the 4th of July holiday and so I went in search of quotes about the 4th.
This one stuck out to me because it was a great reminder of just how lucky we are.
Most of us get to celebrate this holiday in peace.
At home with family and friends.
Living under the protective blanket of freedom.
So, for this 4th of July I suggest we all do our best to write the word “thankful” on our hearts. To let it infuse all that we do.
Make it a great day.
