Sweet tea, watermelons, potato salad, and bar-b-que with a dash of fireworks!

on July 4, 2012

Fireworks, friends, family, fellowship, and food, what an awesome way to celebrate!  Nothing like the  Fourth of July in the south! It is a sensory delight to the eyes, ears, and taste buds. It is a day of colorful flags,parades, loud music, outdoor games, and lots of friends and family around to enjoy the festivities. A time to let off steam and truly enjoy a day of freedom to do in whatever fashion and tradition has been passed on over the years.

We all need more Fourth of July’s in our lives. Time to unwind with those we enjoy. Holidays can be overwhelming but they are the foundation of our culture which defines who we are and where we have come from. Find pleasure and pride in the prep, the excitement in the moment of the event, and in the closure. Cleaning up can be just as rewarding if you focus on the memories. Find the positive and the memories, dwell there so they will be “on file” for those moments when life gets frustrating. Laughter is a great stress reliever as well as an “upper”Image when times are tough. May your Fourth be filled with happy memories for many tomorrows.
