God Bless the USA!

Hey everyone!

I just wanted to pop in and wish you all a very happy 4th of July weekend and send a HUGE THANK YOU to all of those men and women who have fought and are fighting to keep our country safe and free! Without your bravery and dedication, who knows where we would be??? You are in my prayers always.

Stay tuned for my post-4th of July post! I'll be making Grandma's Strawberry Pie and perhaps a blueberry tart as well!!!

Before I close this post, I wanted to leave you with one of the best songs about our wonderful country:

  1. I remember the first time I heard "God Bless The USA". I was six years old, and it was a mid-western dusky afternoon. It was at a rodeo, and before anything began, we all stood up with our hands over out hearts and listened to Lee Greenwood piped over the loudspeakers. I think it's the earliest memory I have of a song reaching down and touching my heart. It's a feeling I can't describe...but where the song abruptly pauses was definitely the key moment for me. I plan to write about it on our website: Rock The Jukebox. Thanks for your post!
