I love that familiar sound of 4th of July. You can feel the excitement in the air with the anticipation of beautiful sparkling lights and the soul shaking boom of fireworks to celebrate the sacrifices made for our freedom.
What a day for family, grilling, boating, and enjoying our Midwest summer weather. I am so thankful for those who have served and continue to serve our blessed country. I am forever grateful to the families of those who sacrifice time with their sons, husbands, mothers, and daughters, grandfathers and grandmothers, brothers and sisters of those who serve. Let us never take for granted our freedoms.
Have a safe and happy 4th of July! May God continue to protect our soldiers and bless the United Sates of America!
