I love the 4th of July. I got made fun of today at work for that. Why is it so cool for Americans these days to hate America? I notice this even with my friends who have been on a lot of mission trips, “America sucks….” I’m definitely not a flag-hugging hillbilly who sings along to Toby Keith’s horribly stupid song, “Courtesy of the Red, White, and Blue” but our nation has way too many great freedoms and rights that we take for granted. And I don’t like how people are so ungrateful. No government will ever be perfect and neither will any country. So, if you think America is stupid, either move to another country or don’t talk to me about it =)
Anyway, a year ago today, Josh and I weren’t married yet, we were living in Oregon, I went to a rodeo with my family while Josh worked at the exciting Home De-pot, then once Josh got off, he and I and Durbin went to the Reigelmann’s 4th of July BBQ! Then we went to fireworks on the mountain. It was a fun day! This year we’re married, living in Nor Cal, we both had to work today and soon we’ll be heading to Pacifica for a BBQ and hang out time with our youthgroup! Who knows where we’ll be next year! Anyway, we hope you all have a good and safe 4th.
