Sunday Morning Poetry


God bless America,
Land that I love,
Stand beside her and guide her
Thru the night with a light from above;

From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans white with foam,
God bless America,
My home, sweet home.
God bless America,
My home, sweet home.
~ Irving Berlin


Happy Fourth, my friends. May God bless and keep you. May God bless our beautiful, beautiful America. Listen.

I wonder if today's youth are learning all the patriotic songs that we learned so well in school music classes. I fear not. And that is a sad thought!

Happy Fourth, sweet, sweet friend of mine! I hope it is full of good eating, good people, and a good dose of fireworks!

P.S. Thanks so much for your wonderful comments on my last two posts!!! Everything is just fine. This move is one I've needed and wanted for a very long time, and I couldn't be happier! We're not selling our loft--just renting it out for now with plans to sell it eventually. In the meantime, we're renting a place to live and it is beeeoootiful! Can't wait to share photos w/ you. xo

We have the most wonderful country in the world and I love the freedoms that we have here because of the men and women who have fought for it. Have a happy 4th! I'm glad I will be with you on it!

Even with all the troubles our country has been having lately, it is still a great place to live, work and play.
