I hope everyone had a safe weekend, and that you were able to celebrate freedom among your family and friends. Thing 1 rode her bike without training wheels for the first time today, we cooked out, worked in the garden, and just enjoyed a lovely weekend.
I never forget that there are families whose day is marked with an unfillable hole, because their loved one paid the ultimate sacrifice so that this incredible experiment called America could continue. I have, and will continue to share the important meaning of this day with my children, so that they can one day appreciate just what a gift that is.
Our heartfelt thanks and prayers.
