Happy 4th of July everyone! Today is such a special day. Our country's birthday...no matter how we may feel about the current state of things in this country, one thing remains...being proud of ALL of those that have served our great nation. Past and present. This took on a whole new meaning to us this year. Our oldest son joined the military. He became a United States Marine! I just got off the phone with him, thankfully he is able to call us often. :) He is in training right now in California. Feels like such a long ways away, but he will be home again in August. :)
This spring, we were blessed with the chance to go visit him and see his graduation from boot camp. What an event that was! So many amazing memories we made that weekend. A once in a lifetime event and we felt SO blessed to be there! We are so very proud of our son and of every member of our nations armed forces. They serve a great nation...sacrifice daily for our freedom! There is NO way to thank them enough. The picture below was taken at MCRD San Diego, CA.
This is our son on his graduation day...such a handsome young man! We are SO VERY PROUD of him! :)
Have a very safe and happy 4th of July! Say a prayer for our service members and their families. They all give so very much to keep our great nation free! God bless them...and you. :)
