It's the little things in life which make me happiest...
My parents & nephew visiting from Georgia...
...'cause they bring my beloved Blue Plate.
(Which will be fantastic on the sandwiches made from my homegrowns!)
When my parents stop by my favorite hometown locale on their way to Virginia,
just to deliver goodies that I'm unable to find in these parts.
Did you just hear that? Listen again...
...it's a Heavenly Host singing "Hallelujah!"
Because of the Wilson's famous Flower Cookies.
That I have a husband who lets me fawn over this one guy I happen to dig a lot.
(Because said husband really digs Kate Winslet a lot. And I'm OK with that! She is rather hot.)
That I can admit, without fear of persecution or rejection,
that The Best of Chicago* is a really fantastic album.
(Oh, come on..."Make Me Smile" is so awesome.)
Because I live in a country which values freedom.
Because that freedom is not something I take for granted.
Because being an American is just flat-out awesome, y'all!
God has blessed the USA, and I pray He'll continue to do so.
Happy Independence Day, everyone!
*Thanks, Lauren, for the reminder...I rather love you for it.
