Happy 4th & Memories from Crystal Beach

I have lots of pictures to share from our trip to Crystal Beach but I wanted to share this one first ... it IS the 4th of July after all! This is a photo I took when we were headed out on the fishing boat. I looked up and saw this beautiful (in my opinion) display of The Stars & Stripes. The sun was shining, it was breezy and warm and ... well... just LOOK at the color of the sky! I felt so lucky and blessed to be right where I was right at that moment. And it made me stop and think about all our men and women who were in places they would probably rather not be but they were there on our behalf. And over the years there have been so many who have given so much. I was instantly grateful and overwhelmed at the same time. It was such a contrast in emotions ... to feel so happy and lucky and also remember so many who likely wish they were right where I was. We are all very fortunate to live here in the USA. We are blessed in so many ways. Please take a moment to say a prayer for our men and women who are away from their families right now and those who have served in the past and those who have lost their lives. They all deserve our respect and gratitude.

Stay tuned for some fun pictures from Crystal Beach ... and Happy 4th of July!
