Darlings, I hope every person who celebrated had a wonderful 4th of July Holiday this past weekend. The fireworks were intense all over the country…it was a sight to see! I was reading an article on NPR about how “tradition” has “burst” back through America, after having to stay inside during last year’s 4th of July celebrations. It made me so proud to be an American, and I’m so happy America is getting back into full swing. I just hope everything stays safe, and remember to keep washing your hands and doing what you have to do to keep your family, yourself, and your community safe!
God bless America and God bless all of you!
Now, on to my weekend musings…
