Soon we celebrate our nations independence. I originally wrote this blog a couple of years go. Enjoy
I love celebrating Independence Day; not just for the fireworks or the celebration and recognition I live in a country with freedoms. My mom entered into life one glorious 4th of July making this day extra special. Mom, now deceased many years, filled my thoughts this Fourth of July.
My mother gave her children a special gift; a legacy of unconditional love. No matter how much trouble my siblings and I got into, or how often we disobeyed, or behaved like bratty little children, we always knew we were loved. I grew up in a middle-class home with parents who sacrificed much to give their children all they needed and more. Looking back, I realize I didn’t always appreciate, or understand, the sacrifices made for our benefit. It was simply parents doing what parents do.
