The 4th of July is my favorite holiday....no stress, just family and friends gathering to enjoy each others company and to appreciate what we take for granted most of the year.
A special red white and blue quilt hand made many years ago with family and friends names written on it. From toddler scrawls to foreign exchange students who joined us to celebrate...spread out on the grass of the local high school football field. Fireworks lighting up the warm summer evening, hot dogs, shaved ice, This has become a traditional 4th of July for us. Grandchildren making the occasion even more special as years go by. Seeing it all fresh...reflected in their eyes.
