Celebrate and Remember

Today is a day to celebrate! To celebrate our country, our freedom, our choices.  And it's a day to remember. A day to remember the men and women who are not here, the ones who will be missing at the cookouts (barbeques) and fireworks. The ones still deployed and the ones who didn't come home. 

Do not take your freedom lightly, do not take it for granted. We are a privileged nation. And our freedom did not come without sacrifice.

My husband escaped from communist Poland when he was eighteen, and to hear him talk about what it was like is almost unbelievable.  The lack of freedom and choices were overwhelming. 

Have a safe and happy holiday!
May God Bless and keep America in the palm of his hands.

And just a quick note about Olga's Give To. I just want to make sure you all know that I have more... much more than one of each ornament. There are plenty of each and if they run out I have others to choose from. Thank you for your support, I am thrilled with the way it's running so far!
