Happy Independence Day!
America is the greatest country in the world.
Why you ask?
(really? you need a reminder?)
Because of the little things...
Like fishing with my kids.
Like walking the dog at night.
Like listening to my favorite music.
Like working for a living.
Like waking up with freedom.
Like driving to the DQ for an ice cream.
Like watching a Little League baseball game.
Like sending our kids off to school.
Like family road-trips.
Like the Liberty to choose.
Like flying old glory on a gorgeous day.
Like celebrating another birthday.
Like singing the National Anthem.
Like voting in a local election.
Like the constant Pursuit of Happiness.
Like my daughter sidewalk-chalking our walkway.
Happy 4th of July!
