Wishing the blogosphere a very happy July 4th! Today I am thankful for the men and women throughout our history that have preserved our freedom and for those serving currently. Freedom is not free.
As I researched my family’s history for our upcoming trip, I found that my great great (could be here awhile if I wrote them all out) grandpa on my Grandma T’s dad’s side served in the Revolutionary War as a member of the Massachusetts Militia. I can’t imagine how we must have felt being a part of such an transformative moment in history. He was tremendously proud of his service, which is even noted on his gravestone in Connecticut.
Today many of us will enjoy the beach, barbecues, parties and fireworks with our families to celebrate the holiday. Be safe, have fun, live in gratitude and pursue your passions.
