Patriotic Pair

I love the 4th of July.
Everything about it makes me happy. The parades, the fireworks lighting the night sky, the red white and blue coated towns, actually the red white and blue coated everything, the summer food, grilling, the time spent with friends and family, and most of all the celebration of FREEDOM.
I remember sitting on the lawn of our Nation's Capitol a few years back, in complete awe of the crowd and the setting in which I was in. I was trying to take it all in, just staring at the huge flag on the building when I was overwhelmed with gratitude for our country and for our soldiers. 
I also remember growing up riding my decked out bike in our local parade, then running around the beautiful outdoors with cousins all day long. Here in the south, the patriotism is unbelievable. It makes me smile as I walk by our community pool lined with flags, and the red white and blue covered porches. It doesn't matter where in this beautiful country I am, liberty and freedom abound. Those I far too often take for granted. I will strive to remember this more often.
