I thought I might have to work today at my second job, so I’m am so happy to have today off. I will probably spend most of the day crafting as I am working on opening an Etsy store this month and want to finish the work on my initial inventory.
For many years our family would watch fireworks as part of our loose July 4th traditions, but we stopped doing even that a few years back. But even though I won’t be barbecuing, picnicking, or going to the beach, I will still be thanking God for being blessed enough to live in such an amazing place where I enjoy so many benefits that I sadly often take for granted.
A friend is a naturalized citizen and has shared some of what still happens in her country of origin. I have always been grateful, but hearing about the experiences and situations that happen there has added a new level to my thankfulness.
