Happy 231st USA
I hope everyone has a safe, fun, and relaxing holiday. Tough to have it fall on wednesday, but maybe you got lucky and scored a five day weekend. Good on you. In any event, enjoy the day, and take a minute to think about how lucky we are to live in such a cool country. Sure, there's turmoil and war and immigration issues, among others, to solve, but there's still no denying that we live in the land of opportunity. Put down the newspaper. Shut off the news. Just look around at all we have. Beauty surrounds us. Food to eat. Freedom to speak what we feel, read what we choose, paint what we want, earn a living doing what we're passionate about. Many have sacrificed much to allow us the lives we enjoy today. I don't know about you, but I wouldn't want to live anywhere else. Happy 4th to you and yours. The red, white, and blue sprinkles are on me.
