The 4th of July

The 4th of July was not a bad one this year. Usually, the 4th of July is just not a fun day for me. When I was 10 years old, I went to my grandma's house that morning to meet my parents who had been there that night taking care of my grandma because she was very sick. When I got to her house, they told me that she had passed away early that morning. Since I was very close to my grandmother, I was very upset. Since then, the 4th of July has been on of my least favorite holidays. Andrew always goes out of his way to make sure that on this day I have lots of things to do to keep my mind off what day it is. It was the first 4th of July with Calleigh and that makes things easier. Whenever I look into her little eyes and she smiles at me the world is so much better. When things seems to be wrong, I just remember that I have her and Andrew and life is just as it should be. I am very blessed to have a wonderful and loving family. God has blessed my life with so many things I feel like I do not deserve. I have a good job, a loving husband, and wonderful little girl, and friends and family who love me, regardless of my flaws. I found a bible passage today that meant a lot to me, 1 Samuel 1:27. Check it out. It's pretty cool! Hope everyone is having a great day and enjoying their summer!

Love to all,
