A day we spend in Pella, Iowa with shopping the great sales. Watching an afternoon parade, and hanging out with family and friends! Life is good.
On this day, probably more than any other..... I think of TJ, my youngest son, who put his college on hold and instead is a proud Marine along with all his brothers and sisters in the military. I think of the grueling training and preparation they undergo. I think of the Marines and other service men and women stationed around the world.
These young Americans aren't there for themselves..... They are there for us. They allow us to enjoy our day of fun celebrations. They provide us with peace of mind that our country is safe and we are trying to keep the peace around the world.
Politics aside.... They are there and we are here living our life.
Please say an extra prayer... Take a moment to thank the American military! It is because of them we celebrate freedom! ... See MoreSee Less
