Happy Independence Day, everyone. In honor of today, to our founding fathers and the brilliant documents they crafted for us and to all members of the armed services past and present, including our son Eric, I say thank you.
This quilt is a reflection of pride in our country and it hangs proudly in our home today.
Our son Eric is in the Army serving in Afghanistan right now and I was able to snag a couple photos of him from another soldier’s Facebook page.
I can’t even begin to describe how these photos make me feel because they evoke such a huge range of emotions, encompassing pride, fear, anxiety, patriotism, gratitude and everything in between. I’ll leave it at that.
Enjoy your barbeques, families, friends and fireworks, and if you’re quilting today, enjoy that too with thanks in your heart that we still live in a country where creative pursuits are possible.
