THANKFUL THURSDAY….and I set out my few patriotic things the other day. I was telling a blogging buddy (sorry for the repeat, Deb) that holiday decorating has certainly scaled back since the nest became empty:) but I do enjoy the few things I have – and especially this time of year! I did find a few cute things for the front porch this week at Michaels…all on sale and I do love a bargain:)
I love the since of pride – proud to be an American – that I feel when I set these things out…or even when I see others’ flags, etc. I am thankful to be an American. I am thankful for the freedoms that are written into our constitution. I am thankful that those freedoms allow me to not necessarily always be “politically correct.” Don’t get me wrong…I don’t try to be rude or offensive and I do try to respect others.
However, I am glad that my values and opinions don’t often “gel” with the politically correct current of our day – and that I am able to express my views and stand up for what I believe. Granted, that may get harder and harder to do…..but I am thankful for this country.
And thinking patriotically – don’t forget about 1- the giveaway! If you missed the info, go here to check it out and then just leave me a comment to be entered. Its that easy – and the winner will be drawn and announced tomorrow. And 2 – tomorrow’s Friday with Friends…we are talking about Independence Day – maybe your plans this year, a great memory, or just your thoughts on the subject! Already some have told me they will be joining; I hope you will join us, too!
