If you have ever lived for an extended period of time outside of the
United States, you come to understand how very lucky we are to
live here. When I returned, I was so very happy to be home once again.
The many, many things we take for granted are not available to
everyone else. Being able to turn on the tap and safely drink a glass
of water. Electricity that barring a major storm, is dependable every
single day. Being able to safely drive your car down the road without
having the driver of the car in front of you decide to put his car into
reverse and back up at 45 mph because he wanted to stop for someone
or something he spotted a ways back on the road. Sewer systems.
Little things like that.
The rights we as women have. The opportunity to elect our leaders.
An educational system that is available to everyone. The ability to voice
our opinions. The access to excellent medical care.
As we approach this 4th of July weekend, I believe we should take the
time to reflect on the greatness of our nation. During this election year,
we hear of so much that is wrong with our country, yet I think we
should be taking the time to be thankful for everything we have that
is so right.
God Bless America!
Big Texas Hugs,
