Happy Birthday America!
Here is the posting I did last year. Put out the same bunting but the plants in the old planters are Boston Ferns.
Love being able to be free to worship, live and enjoy life. Thanks to everyone who made this possible for me and my family.
This year I’m really feeling more Patriotic than ever. I don’t know why, I think I’m pretty Patriotic most of the time.
I’m stirred when I see the flag waving and my heart goes out to the men and women who have served our country and fought for freedom beyond the USA shores and here so we can enjoy days like Memorial Day, V-Day and the 4th of July. Actually, when you think about it, they have given us our freedom to enjoy every day.
Maybe it is because I have several friends who son’s are or have been in Iraq. One still has shrapnel in his buttocks and he sets off the metal detectors as he flies back and forth.
They remain in my prayers for God to put His mighty hand on them and protect them from harm.
This year I decided to decorate. My #2 Daughter showed me a picture of her bunting on her steps and I loved it, so I thought our porch would make a good spot.
As #2 Daughter said, “It’s a great time to decorate.” “You can decorate for Memorial Day and leave it up all through June and the first part of July.”
I don’t decorate for every season, usually Christmas but I think I’m adding decorating for Memorial Day and the 4th of July to my list.
Of course Henry wanted to get in the picture, so he was enjoying the decorations as well.
I found the bunting and flags at Walmart. Michael’s has the bunting for the same price 2 for $19.00 but at M’s you can also get a single bunting. Walmart only had packages with 2 buntings. M’s flags are also cheaper.
Come on and join me and let’s put out something to remind ourselves and those that drive by that we honor those who are fighting for our freedom.
