It’s Independence Day 2014

independence day 2014

Today, on this Independence Day 2014, is a day to remember all that our Forefathers left behind. Today is about remembering and celebrating our independence as a new nation when John Adams, George Washington and many others were at the forefront fighting to give us the chance to become the free country we are today, America. The Declaration of Independence is what they left for us, and no matter what, Americans still believe in the truth it states.

Remembering today in all that this country was founded on – and thank you to those who have protected those morals and values so that we can continue living in a free country these many years. Hop your day is full of celebration and good memories, readers!  

Well she lit up the sky that fourth of July
By the time that the firemen come
They just put out the flames and took down some names
And sent me to the county home
Now, I ain’t sayin’ it’s right or it’s wrong
But maybe it’s the only way
Talk about your revolution
It’s Independence Day

Let freedom ring, let the white dove sing
Let the whole world know that today, is a day of reckoning
Let the weak be strong, let the right be wrong
Roll the stone away, let the guilty pay, it’s Independence Day – Martina McBride

What are your plans today? Family and a picnic? A sparkling fireworks show? Swimming? A day on the lake? Comment all of your fun plans below!

Happy Independence Day 2014

    Happy Independence Day to you, too! :D (My plans include "catching up"…with everything! ;) )

      Hope you had a wonderful day, Tammy. Cannot believe July 4th has come and gone – I just can't keep up! ;)

    Happy 4th to you too! Enjoying the pool and lots of soccer today!

    • Rissi July 6, 2014 at 3:19 PM

      Yay! Gotta' love the pool – I'm jealous. ;)

      Hope you had a wonderful day, Jamie. Not sure I like this holiday marking the year being half over. :)

    Happy Independence Day!

    Spent the first half of it at work, the second half chatting with a friend I rarely get to talk to, and will wind up the evening with my annual viewing of "The Patriot." What about you?

      Charity, hi! :)

      Bummer about work. But, I'm glad you got in some fun too – catching up with friends is the best and watching The Patriot always good. (I need to rewatch it.) My day was quiet. We grilled out, watched the fireworks and a cute Hallmark movie but yesterday I had lunch with a cousin and that was fun. :)

      Happy (belated) Independence Day! :)

    Happy 4th to you too Rissi!

    • Rissi July 7, 2014 at 2:52 AM

      Right back atcha, Natalie! Hope you had a great July 4th; I don't want this long weekend to end. :)

  • Tressa S July 7, 2014 at 6:59 AM

    Just wanted to wish you a happy 4th! We were out of town for the past few days relaxing with my in-laws and I didn't touch the computer once. It was a nice break and loads of fun with the kids! :)

    • Rissi July 8, 2014 at 12:26 AM

      Ooo! That does sound like a wonderful time, Tressa! I'm with you. There are times when it's nice to have a computer/electronic device break. For me, it's been during the weekends, and it is indeed nice. :)

      Happy belated July 4th. Hope you had a wonderful day.
