Holiday Catch Up

I know, I know…

I’m falling behind again…  I have a GREAT excuse, though!  Here in the good ol’ USofA, we are celebrating America the Beautiful today!!  

Hooray!  It’s INDEPENDENCE DAY!

The 4th of July is a day for remembrance and for reflection, and to be thankful to all of those who came before us.  Remembrance of what they did.  Reflection of what their actions have meant, and thankfulness that they had the courage to do them.  Without all their brave actions, we would not be the country we are today.

 

We BBQ.

We celebrate with friends and family.

We are able to do these things, because of the great people that came before us.  Our freedom has never been and will never be free.  We were reminded of that earlier this year, when a great friend was killed fighting for our freedoms.  May his soul rest in peace, and his kindness and love for our country forever be a great example to everyone who knew him. (CTTC  Christian Pike)  

So, this is why I am behind.  😉  I’ve been picnic preparing and eating!!! WE must celebrate!!

(Mmmmm…Thank you Ieva!)

Now…   

On with my catching up!  😉  I’ll try to keep it short and sweet!

Day 3: Aspirations

My new life long goal is to be a better person.  Always working to better myself in the eyes of the Lord.  I was put on the right path as a child, then I grew a bit and thought I knew it all.  Now, I am on the right path, again.  😉  I wish to stay on it, and move forward DAILY!  My aspirations in the world of writing is to write my book(s)!!!  😉  Of course!

Day 4: Favorite Film Character

For the sake of saving time, space, and your eyes, I will refer you back to last month’s Favorite Fictional Character.  Yoda is still supreme ruler!  😉

See, that was PAINLESS!!

***McCrazy Daily Lesson: Take nothing for granted.  Learn from everything.  Try and use lessons learned for the future, so mistakes are not repeated.***
