Hard to wake up after going to bed at 11:30 (Greg & kids) or 1:30 AM (me). My eyes flew open at 6:57 AM. So much for getting showered before our Annual Neighborhood 4th of July Breakfast.
Over at the church, we meet up with Curtis, Ashlie, Tyson, Rilee & Grandpa. The boy scouts do a flag raising ceremony. A talk was given by a wonderful man who had served in the war. We sang some hymns. The Primary kids rode their decorated bikes in a parade. We ate breakfast, visited and let the kids play. It was such a wonderful day.
I am so grateful for living in America. I do not take for granted the freedoms that I enjoy. I thank my Father in Heaven every day for how blessed I am.
