Happy (Early) 4th of July!!

This is the new Patriotic Puppy from Pillow Pets!! He is a red pup with a blue belly with white stars.  But my favorite thing about this pup is that $5 from every sale is donated to Scholarships for Military Children!! What a great cause!!  If you are going to buy toys for your kids, at least this way you are giving back to those who protect our country!!  Only 3000 of the Patriotic Pups are available.  I am especially thankful this year for the men and women who serve our country because I know a few families who are celebrating the birthday of our country without their loved ones!!  I think we should make sure to really thank those service men and women and remember why we are celebrate the 4th of July. THANK YOU OLIVER, TRAVIS, & KEVIN and EVERY else who is or has served our country!!!!!

Thanks to Kathy, 1 lucky reader will win their own Patriotic Puppy!!

A HUGE heartfelt thank you to all the men and women who are dedicating their lives to serving their (our) country! It is not a job for the weak at heart, and we are grateful for everyone who makes the sacrifices necessary to ensure a free nation.

I am thankful for my independence this Fourth of July weekend because we live in the greatest nation in the world! Any number of evil dictators or terrorists would see an end to us being free, and yet they have all failed and free we remain. We can pray if we want, to whomever we want, and attend church services without fear of death. We can like our President or not like him, and we are free to express that peacefully. This is a GREAT nation!

I am also honoring (on FB) my other 2 brothers, Jason & Marcus who served. As well as my 4 uncles, my Dad, & my grandpa. I am also honoring my husbands family who served including an aunt and his dad.

I am grateful for the freedom to believe and worship in our own way here in this country. In very few other places in the world can you do so openly and without reproach.

I am thankful for my independence because I get to choose. I get to make my personal choices rather than having a ruler/dictator make them for me. I get to serve my risen Savior and not have to worry about being harmed for doing so.
