“Begin doing what you want to do now. We are not living in eternity. We have only this moment, sparkling like a star in our hand - and melting like a snowflake.”

Happy 4th of July ~ Happy Pink Saturday ~ God Bless America!

Please join us in celebrating the precious freedom we, as a country, enjoy and hold dear. Freedom that our young men and women are fighting for overseas in so many countries - in too many countries. Freedom that the young people of Iran, wearing their green ribbons in recognition of their fight for freedom from oppression, marched in the streets and died for after a sham presidential election - their blood falling onto the hard, cold pavement. Freedom that we, as Americans, were born with - the same freedom that others fight for and pray for and die for each and every day, quietly and without notice.

Please turn off the music at the right for full appreciate of video

Today as we celebrate our remarkable freedom with picnics and family and friends and fireworks and sparklers, please stop for a moment to remember all those who came before us who died for this day and all those who are not home with their loved ones because they are deployed in Iraq or Afghanistan fighting to preserve this day.

Happy 4th of July, everyone and Happy Pink Saturday! Please visit Beverly at HOW SWEET THE SOUND. Some of the prettiest and most imaginative blogs are participating in Pink Saturday this week.

Hi Mimi!
I am so thrilled I visited this morning. I see you love pink and hats also from your icon. Loved the post. It is something we forget about the ones who have fought, and are fighting to provide us with the freedoms that we have. My husband was a marine, our son was in the army, and so was my Daddy. Thanks for reminding us this beautiful 4th of July. I have signed up to follow your BLOG and would love for you to pop over to mine and do the same. "Country Hugs", Sherry

Yes I know the feeling being one who also celebrate Independence day in my country. Just thinking of the courage and sacrifices - everything our forefathers have to go through to attain freedom is truly remarkable and makes everyone thankful.

Happy Pink Saturday!
