Happy 4th of July!

Leave a comment

Today, this is just a brief post, from my phone no less, to wish you all a very Happy 4th!

I love this country and am proud to be a citizen. No system is without its flaws, but we are lucky and blessed to live in the land of the free. Our freedom has been fought for and earned, and today we celebrate our independence.

When I think of the 4th of July in Maine, I think of hamburgers and red hot dogs, possibly seafood, plates piled high with salad, chips, and dessert; and most of all, I think of family. My family, the one I had the good fortune to be born into, and the one I married into, is fundamentally the most important thing in my life. This year, I’m not with them, but I usually am. Perhaps that’s why they’re on my mind. A holiday always feels like time for family. I hope you’re with yours, and enjoying this special day!
