The Gift of Freedom

July 4, 2011

A couple of days ago, I finally had time to spruce up the perennial garden which was in dire need of my attention. There are other outdoor projects still to tackle. But today, on our country’s Independence Day, I’m claiming liberty and staying indoors. Taking our nation’s celebration to heart, I plan to rest, chow down on chilled watermelon, strawberry shortcake, read and maybe do some writing.

Thanks to our soldiers and their families, past and present, I have the freedom to choose how I spend my day. Liberty is a wonderful gift.

Happy Independence Day everybody!
