It’s Independence Day, and I am thinking about freedom. Freedom in my life–how much I have, how much I want, and how much other people don’t seem to have it.
Freedom: exemption from external control, interference, regulation, etc…. the power to determine action without restraint.
It has been a ‘dream come true’ for me to write. And be able to do it for a living… okay, maybe not that much of a living, at least yet anyway… but still, I can write and people pay me to do it. It has not been an easy road, and I think of all those who have fought for freedom. Freedom for dreams, family, country, life, freedom of speech… I am forever grateful to those who have sacrificed in my behalf.
On this freedom celebration day, take a moment to ponder your freedoms, and what it means to use all of the wonderful freedoms and talents you have been allowed.
Happy Fourth of July, Independence Day!!
