proud to be an American...

Every time I hear the National Anthem or children saying the Pledge of Allegiance, I get teary eyed.

The words that can best describe my emotions would probably be


I am proud of our country... proud of our heritage... and proud of our heroes that fight for our red, white, and blue. I am blessed with freedom... blessed with peace... and blessed with the grace of our Father above.

Last week, as we drove across only a portion of our great nation, it was hard not to think of how beautiful of a country we live in. How vast and glorious and free it is and how blessed we should all be to call it ours.

God bless America on this 4th day of July.
