This is a big holiday weekend, celebrating one of our nation’s biggest holidays. Independence Day is taking a beating this year, however, as our country is wrapped in controversy and conflict.
So, I’m approaching it as a sort of “Thankspendence”. Here are a few good things to be grateful for, regardless of your other views:
- Music and the chance to make it.
- Friendship that hangs on through the arguments.
- Hamburgers, no matter what they’re made of.
- Fireworks, for their beauty and the joy they represent.
That may all sound a little cheesy, but let’s just blame it on the burger, shall we? (mmm, cheeeeese….)
Have a great weekend, everyone.
