Thanksgiving in July

By donna - Posted on 01 July 2015

When I think about the fourth of July holiday, and what it stands for I feel it is just as much a time for giving thanks as the official Thanksgiving holiday in November.

We have so much to be thankful for. One is living in a country that allows free enterprise to thrive. With out it I dare to think about all of todays creature comforts we might be living without. I wonder if people like Henry Ford, Cyrus McCormick, and others like them ever realized what doors their inventions opened for farming and industry in general.

We can be thankful in the fact that our government allows us to select those we each feel is right for the job of running our country. We might not always agree but right or wrong it was our choice.

We can be thankful that we have a strong educational structure in our schools and colleges that provide the best education for each generation now and in the future.

I have just touched the tip of the iceberg I'm sure you can think of many on your own.

As you celebrate this fourth of July, be thankful that you and your family can do so, thanks to a group of wise men that created our constitution back in 1776.
