I'm so grateful for this country of ours.
The other day in the car Dave and I were talking through the history of Independence Day which led to a good little discussion about the Founding Fathers. As we talked about how they worked so hard to establish a great country, and must have certainly asked God for guidance and help along the way, Claire mentioned it was kind of like a Mom and Dad trying to figure out rules for their family so it could be great.
You're right, Claire. Loved that little analogy.
And I loved Lucy's prayer that night when she said, "please bless us to remember that the 4th of July isn't just about fireworks and fun..." haha.
We are gearing up for some pretty great "fireworks and fun" tonight, but boy howdy I hope we remember the real deal of why we celebrate this great day. So grateful for all those who went before to make this country great. Hoping we can always keep it that way!
