Hello sweet friends, time again to share our thankful hearts. I am so very thankful for all of you, you bless me more than you realize. I am thankful for your friendships, may you all forever be sweetly blessed. I am thankful for the vacation time that I enjoyed with my lovebug last week. I really needed to unwind, and destress. I am thankful for last Wednesday night, we went to our local amusement park. We had so much fun riding the rides, and walking around. When it got dark, they turned off all the lights, and shot off fireworks over the lake. As I stood there leaning against my lovebug, I felt so blessed. Knowing that he loves me so much, and that my Father God loves me just as I am, my heart was overflowing. The beautiful fireworks really touched my heart, I am so thankful to be living in America, and for my freedom. I am thankful for my nephew who proudly serves his country in the army, he is now serving his second term in Iraq. I am thankful for my nephew who proudly serves his country in the navy, he is currently in Afghanistan. I am thankful for all those men and women who so willingly, and bravely serve their country. May God bless them all, and keep them safe. As we were watching the fireworks, they started playing the song by Lee Greenwood called God bless the U.S.A., I have always loved that song. I started crying like a baby, because that song was played at my brothers funeral a few weeks ago. I miss him so very much, and always will. But, my heart filled with pride that night, as I remembered what a precious man my brother was. I am thankful to be his sister, now, and always.
