You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism. ~Erma Bombeck
I actually received this from an old and dear friend who shared it on Facebook. I found it to be such a lovely July 4th sentiment, reminiscent of my childhood, that I decided to share it... Have a fabulous Independence Day... or Monday!!
