Today is one of my favorite holidays of the year, America’s birthday! The fourth of July is sandwiched perfectly in the middle of the year and it is the ideal time to reflect on all we have to be grateful for, including the beauty and freedoms America affords us. Per usual, David is at a baseball game as I write this. There is always baseball on the fourth, and pretty much every holiday that takes place during the season, for that matter.
Truthfully though, we have been so fortunate the last two years because he has coached with the Gulf Coast League and been able to live at home. Even better, his game started at ten this morning, so he will be home early enough that we can go light some fireworks with the kids – or preferably, watch them. The boys keep asking about buying fireworks, but I can’t help but worry that someone may accidentally catch on fire!
Note: I am not a fan of anything hot or sharp! I am about as risk-averse as they come.
Regardless of your plans today, I hope you get the chance to enjoy the beauty around us on this special day. This is a great time to have fun with your friends and family, and to remember that we have so much to be grateful for!
