Happy Birthday!

Today is Meagan's very first 4th of July.  We celebrate the Birthday of our great nation and remember the vision put forth by our founding fathers.  As I was thinking about the main principles in our Declaration of Independence, life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, I began to see how they also intertwined with what I hope for Meagan's future, and for all of my girls.

To live it to the fullest.  To enjoy it.  To glorify God with their daily actions. To be thankful for the gift of life we have all been given, and to defend life as they become productive members of society.


To use it wisely.  To use it responsibly.  To enjoy the freedoms we are so blessed with in this nation.  To use their freedom to do good, but also use it to freely walk away from bad choices.  To never take their freedom for granted.

Pursuit of Happiness:
To be content.  To find a meaningful vocation. To continually educate themselves in their faith.  To realize the short time we have here, and enjoy being sisters together. To pursue their dreams and use it for good.

So Happy Birthday America!!  Thank you to those who have fought and continue to fight for it.  And thank you God for our blessings in this great country, and especially for my wonderful family! 

Happy 4th of July to all!
