Note: did you know Nashville is has the 2nd largest fireworks show in the country? It was an incredible show! They even had a live symphony playing downtown that they broadcasted on the radios.
As we rode our bikes past gobs of traffic and laid our blanket down to watch the sky fall, I reflected on how fortunate we are to have independence from so many worries, laws, governments and restrictions that other parts of the world have never had.
I never recalled feeling so grateful to have the freedom I have until this year.
Maybe it's because I'm thinking of our future children and the world we bring them into. Or maybe it's because I'm an entrepreneur, who helps others to discover their God given talents and bring value to the world doing what they love. I couldn't imagine not having having these freedoms.
Regardless of why, I felt to much gratitude, pride and joy this year for being an American. Proud to live in such a beautiful country, grateful to have all of the freedoms we have and joyful of what's yet to come.
