Happy Fourth!

Patriotism is not
short, frenzied outbursts of emotion,
but the tranquil and steady
dedication of a lifetime.
Adlai E. Stevenson


I'm all packed and ready to celebrate another year of independence. But before I go, my thanks go out today to all the people who've loved liberty more than life. Who've placed country above comfort and patriotism above pride. I find solace in the freedom so many have fought and died to establish and protect. I'm thankful to be a citizen of this great land that I love.

May God forgive, heal, and bless our America.

Wishing you a safe and magical Independence Day with someone you love. -Brin

Hey! I love the 4th-it's my favorite holiday and I too appreciate those who've sacrified more than I ever would dream of for our freedom.

The best fireworks show I ever saw was with you that time I came to
visit.

Hope you have a Happy Fourth:)

I hear it's raining in Texas but does that mean it's raining where you are?? Wishing you a great day on your picnic whatever the weather. We just celebrated Canada day on July 1st... and had a most wonderful day, beautiful weather and all.
So proud of my country and love living where I do! Isn't that wonderful that we can have that, Brin??

Hey...where is everybody today?!? Anyway, I did just what you said to do today, be with someone I love. Well, not only was I with my friend and husband, I got to spend time with some fun, family and friend girls like Kimberly, Wendy, Jodie and Gina eating, shopping and laughing! Hope your day is terrific Miss Brin.
