Hope Your 4th Sparkles!

This is the celebration of our country's Independence Day, and I'm grateful to be a citizen here.

I may not sound like it at times.

But I am. I am in a country where I can express my opinions and work to preserve the rights our Constitution was designed to protect.

Freedom to change things is something to celebrate...

Here are some of the fireworks from the Capitol last year...I hope your celebration is warm and full of family, friends, or some peaceful down time. I'm so grateful forthe risks and sacrifices of many who came before us whose actions helped to shape the freedoms we have today.

May we shoulder that responsibility with wisdom and grace...

Have a wonderful night and day tomorrow.....enjoy the fireworks in your own neck of the woods :)

Shabbat Shalom and Happy 4th!

I'm having a nice quiet one at home. Sorry, not much for loud fireworks. Been there with the girls, they're grown. Done that! Peace be with you, wherever you celebrate the day!
