Land That I Love.











The want, will, and hopes of the people. right here.  makes me tear up.

we had a wonderful day celebrating yesterday. we never even made it out of the back yard and had just about the best time we've ever had as a family. these days, THESE DAYS, where i can almost literally feel us as a family, getting closer, our relationships deepening. i wouldn't have wanted to be anywhere else in the world, or with anyone else for that matter, than my family- making memories. and when graycen proclaims, "This is such a great day!!!!" and we all agree, then she stands on a stump and recites the pledge of allegiance and we all stand and dune and lars with their chocolate marshmallow faces, and the sparklers we are waving and the God we are thanking, and that all of this is not done in fear, but in pride, we are thankful. we are so thankful and we love this land, oh we so love this land.

"While the storm clouds gather far across the sea, 
Let us swear allegiance to a land that's free, 
Let us all be grateful for a land so fair, 
As we raise our voices in a solemn prayer. " 

God Bless America, 
Land that I love. 
Stand beside her, and guide her 
Thru the night with a light from above. 
From the mountains, to the prairies, 
To the oceans, white with foam 
God bless America, My home sweet home."
