Independence Day 2014: Be Grateful

OK~ Today I am reflecting on all of the things that make our country great! When I take a moment to pause, it makes me appreciate so many things that I take for granted day in and day out.

We take it for granted that we are able to travel freely in our country and abroad. Hopping on a plane with views like this is truly an experience. The beauty that is found 30,000+ feet up above our country is truly amazing!

And then there are moments like this. The skies are churning and the rains do not seem to stop. But you know what, take a glance at this! There's a lot of dedication and celebration to be had in a moment like this. Many parts of our world would LOVE to have rain like we have had in North Iowa and many folks would love to have a John Deere tractor in their yard.

Whatever Independence Day means to you, get out and celebrate. Maybe all of your kids are home for the holiday or you are spending time with extended family. Today is a day to be grateful. I know that I am guilty of taking a lot of the freedoms that I have in this great country for granted. So, today I am going to make a conscientious effort to celebrate the freedoms I have. Join me!

How will you celebrate today? Will you see friends and family or have a quiet day at home? I know often times my husband often has to work the 4th of July, this year not so. I'm thinking that the fact that he does not have to work today may be why I'm taking today a little more serious. The years that he works, which is quite often, it seems like a regular old day! After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
