Freedom

It's red, white, and blue.

It's our military veterans.

It's the men and women fighting to protect our country, our liberties.

It's havin' a big old BBQ with your family.

It's being the girl next door.

It's rooting for America's team, the Dallas Cowboys. ;)

It's Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Daytona.

It's taking the hand of a perfect stranger. 

It's helping people you may never meet.

It's standing up for who you are and what you believe in.

It's about being brave, even when you want to hide under the covers.

It's holding back tears in the face of cruelty (and fighting the urge to flip 'em the finger).

It's later letting those tears fall on folded hands.

It's having faith.

It's believing in the unbelievable.

It's never giving up hope.

It's freedom.

Happy July 4th to you all! Freedom, always.

  8. It's the making out by the lake under the fireworks...

    Except, you know, Texas canceled all of the fireworks this year.

  9. One of my good friends is a die-hard Cowboys fan; my family are 49ers fans. We are forever teasing each other about how each other's team sucks. lol
