I've been busy celebrating birthdays and planning get togethers and painting bathrooms. Life is full and very good. So thankful for the amazing friends in my life and my family. Mr. Wonderful put together a nice gathering for me on my special day. We are loving the new grill!
Take a moment and say THANK YOU for all that you have, all that you are...
Talked to a friend today about how we are way too segmented as a country. He believes we are all American and referenced the following from Teddy Roosevelt.
Theodore Roosevelt on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN
"In the first place we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the man's becoming in very fact an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag, and this excludes the red flag, which symbolizes all wars against liberty and civilization, just as much as it excludes any foreign flag of a nation to which we are hostile...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."
Living life one celebration at a time with a heart full of gratitude and love in the Sunshine State. Wife to Mr. Wonderful. Mom to Baby Girl. Friend to Super Heroes. My vices are magazines and sugar-free gum. I write more words in a day than some do in a year. Books and Antonio Sabato, Jr. are sexy to me. Love taking pictures of nice people more than the places I go. My favorite color is green and my closet knows it. I appreciate dragonflies because they are most powerful in the summer when it’s warm and sunny (like me) and to some they represent new light and joy. My hope is to share words that are helpful and that allows light to shine in a brighter way. Incredibly grateful too for all of it.
