Happy Independence Day

Days like today are pretty awesome. Nice weather. Good food. Great people. I am so proud to live in this country. A country that prides itself on individuality. People are free to say what they want and within the law do what they want. Days like today remind me to celebrate those freedoms.

Being an Army wife has made me even more appreciative. I see what families go through to keep this country safe. The deployments, living far from family and the constant moving. It's tough. Tough but I wouldn't have it any other way. My crazy military life is what this country is about. Hard work. Resiliency. Struggle. Hope. Peace.

Life may not be perfect. Heck, this country may not be perfect. But when I think of all the other places I could be I thank God that I am right here. Happy Independence Day.
