It may be riddled with Problems  and IT could be doing a tad better and WE may grumble and rumble with each other but I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else in the world!!!

Does the Fourth of July get you all sentimental? Oh, and if you are not an American does your Country invoke the same weepy,patriotic, ‘Go Nation woohoo!’ feelings too?

This sappy Fourth of July post is courtesy of the blog hop, Monday’s Music Moves Me which is hosted by the lovely bloggers below!! Join the fun and update your Patriotic iPod list!

    This song always sends chills through me. Great choice my friend. Thanks for playing along with us, and don’t forget to enter our give-aways for our 100th wk. celebration. Have a happy and safe fourth.

    I’m a sappy patriot, too! I just love Lee Greenwood’s God Bless the USA! There’s nothing like getting that swell of pride, as we celebrate our nation’s birthday. I’m SO thankful to call America my home. God bless American and let freedom rock n’ roll forever! ^.^

    Right, Lucy. No country is perfect, but this one we live in is one that so many people are clambering to get into.

    I also like a good patriotic march and a ballad, too.

    (I saw Lee perform this, he was great.)

    What gets me sentimental is the people who sacrifice for us. On patriotic holidays, I’m thinking of those that are in active duty, away from their families… People who have lost limbs, veterans that died for their country… I hope everyone stops and thinks about their sacrifice, and not just enjoy BBQ, fireworks, etc.

    I am very grateful for our country. Maybe not all the people who inhabit it (I’m looking at you, politicians, who refuse to get along), but the place, yes. However, I sort of loathe July 4th. It doesn’t feel like a birthday to me, rather an overindulged celebration of something most people probably couldn’t even name.

    I love this song and almost posted it, but figured at least one other person would post it so I knew I would be able to listen to it and get chills. So, THANK YOU!
    Good luck in our giveaways, you are such a great supporter of ours and we truly appreciate it.
    Wishing you and your a truly spectacular Independence Day!

    1.       My sister and my son make me laugh.
    2.       Sometimes old people make me sad because they remind me of my deceased elderly father.
    3.       My hair looks limp after 10am ;).

    4.       When I hear children laughing, I think of my son.
