Celebrating Our Country All Year Long

Happy Fourth of July! To me this is a time of Honoring those that have sacrificed and continue to do so .... a time of remembering what Our Country was founded on ....

As an Army Brat, I was raised with Red, White, Blue, and Green, all year long! We didn't put our flags out for special occasions, or shop to buy those special Red, White, and Blue crafts for those times either. It was a way of life.

It is something that as an Army Spouse, I still do today. Everyday, I Celebrate My Country! And my house is Red, White, Blue, Colonial, and Primitive! I think the Colonial and Primitive, are an obvious compliment to Americana decor, as they share the same love of Family, God, and Country. They shared respect, dedication, hard work, and honesty that it took to survive.

We have lost a lot of that in Our Country. Hard work and honesty is a forgotten virtue too many times. It is something we must teach our children, so they can teach theirs.

We must not forget the sacrifice our forefathers made for us, and that Our Troops continue to make so we may remain a Free Country!

Have a Safe a Blessed 4th of July!

Hi Tina,

Well said, and I couldn't agree more with everything you wrote.

Many thanks to you and your family for the many years of sacrifice in defense of our great and glorious nation. As a military spouse myself I know the whole family sacrifices.

A very happy, safe and wonderful Independence Day to you and yours!
