You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism. Erma Bombeck
I spent yesterday in Denver working a food truck in the middle of the Fourth of July festivities. It was great to see families and especially the children enjoying music, food, family time and the thrill of a firework show. On my desk I have a picture of my brother holding a sparkler in front of his face. It is one of my favorite photos of him, he is probably six years old and there is such a look of awe and happiness on his face! Remember when something as simple as a sparkler brought joy to your face. May you find happiness in simple moments today!
