Do you have a flag out for 4th of July

This probably sounds silly but so far the highlight of this holiday weekend has been that my DH finally installed a flag and pole given to us as a gift 8 or 9 years ago!

Yes every year I'd make mention of it around Memorial Day and every year there was always something more important going on. After the holiday it was forgotten about until the next year.

This year though with all the attacks and problems we have in this country, I told him this 4th of July it would mean a lot to me to have it up. That it will be our way of saying we proud and believe America is ALREADY Great.

I'm a Navy brat. My father served over 22 years and fought in 2 wars. He was gone for 9+ months out of every year when I was growing up. We didn't have the access families have to our Servicemen now and as a family, we really sacraficed too. I've always loved this country but this year it seems so much more important to actually come out and say it.

Happy 4th of July all!
