On this Fourth of July weekend, as we celebrate our country, let us take a moment to stop, take a deep breath and look around us at our family and friends. Now, think about how much each of them mean to you. We are so blessed to live in a country that allows us to live free. Some families are unable to celebrate with their loved ones this weekend because they are overseas, keeping the peace for ALL of us. Each of these families longs for the day when their family member or friend will return home. Now grab the Kleenex box and gather your family around the computer screen and watch these touching, emotional and joyful homecomings. Then, turn to those around you and hug them!! TIGHT!! :-)

May all of our soldiers come home safely. Happy Fourth of July!!! xo
