Our country has seen many ups and downs over the years. Currently we seem to be in one of the hardest stages of our relatively short history. We want to take this time not to dwell on the difficulties, the conflict, the pain, the violence or the division that seems to be happening but to instead talk about GRATITUDE.
We are so blessed to be in this country. Our founding fathers and ancestors came here from many different countries and united under a common goal of working together and working hard. I know that is what my family did. We grew up in a strong Greek-American family who knew the meaning of hard work and making a way for yourself. I am grateful for all they taught me – the perseverance, strong work ethic, patience and never giving up on what is right and what we believe in.
This is a time to be happy and grateful for what we have as Americans. Living in such a beautiful country… And those of us here in Southern California, even more so… The weather (albeit hot right now) is amazing. Our beaches, mountains, homes…. We have it all! And for that and all this nation has provided, I want to say THANK YOU!
It is still our birthday month… Let’s keep celebrating it! God bless America!
