As I sit at my desk looking over the green grass, with an American Flag gently blowing in the soft morning breeze.
I am reminded of the mindset that we are all one in American and my heart overflows with gratitude.
Growing up in rural America in the 60’s we were a community of worker bees, striving to keep the colony healthy, thriving and united. It was sort of a blissful time.
I suppose it was a Mayberry RFD mindset and it was peaceful and it worked!
No matter the differences and strife that we hear of, I know in my heart that we are all here to work together and celebrate our beautiful Country.
Setting a positive example for one another never hurts either and if I must occasionally bury my head in the sand, well so be it! I am a woman of another decade…now that’s another sort of freedom and let it ring too!
I am not a political woman I am a proud woman of the Country that I live in and I call home.
I don’t even listen to the news, I just believe in my heart that we are all here to love.
Today I am remembering and honoring the WWII veterans as well as my Mom and Dad.
My parents were not political either, they just did what was they believed was right and took pride in their home, land and the fact that Dad had returned safely from WWII.
These memories actually make me feel teary and comfort me too.
There is a grounding in the knowledge of where you come from so to speak and knowing that what you believe in is always true as long as you keep it pure in your heart.
Folks will always want to spin tales, but right is right and wrong is wrong and at the end of the day we should all focus on getting along.
Just that fact that Dad made it home from the war was enough to celebrate life everyday.
Momma had tended to the farm, her aging Father and my sister Sandra while Dad was away.
Quite an agenda for a young twenty year old woman.
I am ending this post with one neat fact on World War II.
The women during this time period gave up wearing stockings in order for those materials to go into the making of supplies for the War.
Can you imagine giving up of your beauty resources!
If so, what one would it be?
As for me I cannot live without lipstick, mascara or a touch of bronzer…guess the foundation would have to go!
Happy Fourth of July to each and everyone!
