FIREWORKS IN A BIRDIE BLOCK!!

I finished the birdie block for July. I was so excited when it came out that I just could not help myself.

Happy 4th of July to all of you!!


Like most of you, I have a great love for my country. I love seeing the American Flag wave in the blue sky. I often wonder where this great love came from. Having a father who served in the military probably was a major role. I like to think my husband and I instilled in our sons a great love for our country as well. As you know, we have two serving and I am proud to say that the other sons feel a great pride in our country as well.

I know my Canadian friends feel the same way about their country. I have been to Canada and I will say that I have never been to a cleaner country. It is very beautiful as well.

So to my Canadian friends, Happy Canada Day...and to us Americans.....have a wonderful 4th of July. May God continue to Bless America....!!!
