Worthy of praise!!!


Hey again it's Elizabeth!!!
I wanted to share a praise that is worthy of mentioning!!
This past weekend was 4th of July as you know. I am sure we can all attest that each of us had a wonderful time eating, fellow-shipping, watching fireworks, and enjoying our freedoms that our country has! 
This year for us, we laid low. In fact, we didn't even leave the house! That's right. It was just Alyssa and I celebrating because Dayv was deployed. We had a fun vegan food celebration, and then lit some sparklers and turtles on our drive way. Then we sat down at it got darker and watched the show! You see our neighborhood has for the past 2 years put on an amazing show. Many of the individuals in our neighborhood go out and spend a great deal of money on fireworks to shoot off and share with all of us. 

 
For that I am very thankful! As we were sitting there watching, I realize how thankful I was to live in a neighborhood that truly cared. Sure it is fun to eat, spend time with friends, and shoot off fireworks. But its always heart-warming to know our neighborhood banded together to show their love for our country by lighting the beautiful fireworks that they did! I was so thankful that we had front row seats to an amazing show, and for each neighbor that was celebrating like us. For our freedoms and comradeship between neighbors.

I hope your neighborhood no matter where you live comes together in moments like this too!
Elizabeth

Gogeous photo! We usually go to a (very) little community for a potluck and fireworks sponsored by a local church - it is great fun but this year my husband actually had the day off so we went out to our cabin. We had NEVER been out there for Canada day (July 1) - our equivalent of Independence Day but they had NO FIREWORKS!! They save it all for parks day (july 16). But it was still nice to relax and spend time as a family!
