Happy 4th of July!

I’m spending the evening watching fireworks at the beach – SO beautiful and magnificent.

I’ll be sure to post some pictures once I can get them onto my computer.

It’s amazing to me how much has changed in a year.

Last 4th of July I was about to have brain surgery and so I really enjoyed the fireworks for all they were worth. I was on this same beach with my family and extended family. We lit fireworks and sparklers, I took a bunch of pictures, and then all my aunts and girl cousins gathered around one table and prayed over me.

I hadn’t been expecting that and it was just so sweet.

I left the next day around lunch, came home and packed for the hospital, and then headed to Miami EARLY Tuesday morning on July 6th.

Last July 4th…I didn’t know if I would be alive to see another year of celebration and fireworks, smiles and bright colors lighting up the night sky.

I’m so happy to be here…I’m going to live this night to the best of my ability.
