God Bless AMERICA!

My country 'tis of thee,
Sweet land of liberty,
Of thee I sing;
Land where my fathers died,
Land of the pilgrims' pride,
From every mountainside
Let freedom ring!

My native country, thee,
Land of the noble free,
Thy name I love;
I love thy rocks and rills,
Thy woods and templed hills;
My heart with rature thrills,
Like that above.

Let music swell the breeze,
And ring from all the trees
Sweet freedom's song:
Let mortal tongues awake;
Let all that breathe partake,
Let rocks their silence break,
The sound prolong.

Our fathers' God to thee,
Author of liberty,
To Thee we sing.
Long may our land be bright,
With freedom's holy light,
Protect us by Thy might,
Great God our King.

How blessed we are in this country, to have the freedoms we enjoy.

I am sooo grateful to be a part of this Great Land.

Today, as we humbly fly our Red, White and Blue proudly, it with be with gratitude to the foresight and brilliance of our forefathers.

I LOVE America!

I hope you will enjoy a wonderful Independence Day with your family and friends, that you will be safe and well and that you'll take a moment to remember our history.

With huge hugs!



  1. Good morning dear one! Yes, we are truly blessed to live in a country that has high ideals and struggles to make those visions a reality. I hope that the sunshine has made it out your way....we had the most gorgeous day yesterday, but around 12noon, it turned really humid and hot. Can't complain though, we are having a fabulous summer!

    Bisous my sweet, Anita
