Freedom

I have been given a lot of time to think about the Freedom that I enjoy as an American. To celebrate and to help me remember the sacrifices that have been made for the blessings that I now receive, I made a little craft. Leslie helped me get it painted. I decided that I wanted it to resemble a flag, so we embarked on tracing our lines, and painting inside of them. It turned out just as I planned. The flag on the side, I made in June. Miranda should put up a picture of the one that she completed at the same time. I then made one a Bridgette's request for her mother-in-law, and then I made one for Glendon for Father's day. Glendon got very emotional, and told me no one had been so thoughtful,(He is a very patriotic man). So, let's just say I have a little practice putting together a stacking flag. I love them, so I won't complain. I want to wish everyone a Happy July. It was 2 years ago yesterday, that I made it back to the U.S.A. and I am so grateful for this wonderful country.
