Independence Day is my favorite holiday, in part because it is a family holiday, a day to relax and reflect on the blessings we have been given. It's also a day of diversity: people throughout the country each celebrating in their own ways -- picnics, cookouts, rodeos, concerts, the beach, whatever. It's also a day to consider where we are as a country and where we could be.
Anyway, I was going to post in more detail what this day means to me but Hank Phillippi Ryan has said it much better this morning on The Lipstick Chronicles blog. Check it out:
Enjoy the day.
