~Happy Birthday, America~





The United States is the only country with a known birthday!
All the rest began, they know not when, and grew into power,
they know not how.......
There is no "Republican," no "Democrat,"
on the Fourth of July, -
all are Americans. ~ James Gillespie Blaine

Wishing you a Safe, Happy, and Blessed Independence Day, my friends~

Today after being wished Happy 4th from my Canadian friend I realize I didn't wish them Happy Canada Day on July 1st.

Today I will celebrate our birthday at home vs. any events or parties. But wishing you a Happy holiday gal wherever you celebrate.

Happy 4th of July... Julie (to you & yours)!
Wonderful quote, so poignant, so true...
to all Americans, for Americans ~ one & all!
To the RED-WHITE & BLUE, may our flag wave proudly and as a show of
solidarity, strength, humility, compassion & inclusiveness!
For all the ideals written in our Declaration of Independence; including Freedom for all!

Many Blessings & Love, your (woolly friend), ~Diane ♥

Happy July 4th a day late! I loved your gathering and Blaine's quote too. We had a hot and humid day and then the thunder storms arrived about 3:30 until about 8pm. Just in time for fireworks to finish celebrating the day!

Hi Janice, Carolyn, Diane, Cathy, and Winnie,
Many thanks to all of you for stopping by for a visit!!! Such a busy time for all of us and do hope that you all were able to enjoy some celebrating with tasty food and fireworks!! We had a nice time with my daughter and SIL and spent the rest of the day relaxing! Even saw a few fireworks from the neighborhood!! I love the quote as well and am just happy to be an American and enjoy our freedoms!!
Take care and have a wonderful weekend, my friends!
