Happy 4th of July!

4th of July fireworks!
Happy 4th of July! We have our American little flags out in the flower beds near the road, proudly displaying our pride in our country. I encourage you to take some moments to reflect on freedom’s price over the years and how our freedoms are now slipping away.

I wish that I could participate in a local tea party this weekend. Instead, I am content with reading a new book, Glenn Beck’s Common Sense

Glenn Beck's Common Sense
Common sense seems to be a scare commodity these days. I highly recommend this insightful and thoughtful book. Here’s a quote for you:

“You can not take away freedom to protect it, you can not destroy the free market to save it, and you can not uphold freedom of speech by silencing those with whom you disagree. To take rights away to defend them or to spend your way out of debt defies common sense.”

Best wishes for a great holiday weekend!


  1. Kick up your heels and enjoy your celebrations Miz Donna but watch that healing leg of yours now!

  2. AMEN! I am heading to our state's capitol today and will be glad to stand for COMMON SENSE. Common sense is rare in the halls of the White House and Congress these days!

  3. Happy 4th Sweetie! That's a great book! Enjoy your peaceful day!hughugs

  4. Happy 4th to you and your hubby, Donna!! ((hugs))

  5. My husband wants to get that book! He loves listening to Glen Beck.
    Big Happy 4th of July hugs to you sweet friend.

  6. Great thoughts to consider. Happy 4th!

  7. Hope you day was wonderful and relaxing!

  8. I am going to be at Sam's club today..will see if they have it there...I have heard Glenn Beck read several passages from this book...sounds like one we all need to read!

  9. I hope you had a pleasant 4th, Donna! And I agree, our freedoms are slipping away little by little.

  10. John's almost finished reading this one and then it's my turn.


Marty, here! Donna loves comments, and I faithfully pass them on to her. Thank you so much for visiting!
