"One day at a time--this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering."

From My Front Porch to Yours

From my front porch to yours,
Happy 4th of July to everyone!

Happy Birthday to
our great homeland,
the 
United States of America!

I'm so very grateful
for the 
men and women
who have fought for and continue to fight
for our freedoms here in the
blessed land of the  USA.
May we never forget
or take these great sacrifices for granted.


Hope you and your family
are able to get together to celebrate!

...And may we all have the bright eyes of a child
(like our sweet granddaughter here)
when we 
celebrate with those fireworks!


Enjoy!!!


Thank you God
for the abundant blessings
you've bestowed upon our nation!
May we continue to be grateful.
God Bless America!

love your cozy
summery inviting
front porch, LeeAnn!
...makes me want to walk
over and sit on the stooop
and sip our drinks,
chatting, while watching
lightening bugs blink
and the moon peek out.
Yes, happy to you, friend:)
thanks for the bright-eyed
wonder you share,
Jen
