    Thank you from me here on the 5th! Isn't the 4th grand? Classic summer fun. Aren't we blessed to be Americans? God bless the USA.

    Lisa, I found my voice too, although not in such a global way as you. The beacon of your path is helping lots of us, and I thank you.
    In a recent post I shared that I now recognize I am like a strong tree: I learned that I can bend as needed instead of breaking as the big winds of life do their best to unroot me. I'm not a weeping willow either!
