We are a very patriotic family. My husband works in politics (womp womp I know) and honestly I never really understood what all goes into making this country run and how stressful it can be. How many people are involved in making these decisions and how much passion these people have for our country. Sure, no one, and I mean no one agrees on politics. Every one has their own opinion because no two people think alike. But that is what makes our country great! Sometimes, politicians can get a bad reputation. When I tell people my husband works in politics, they always have a smart comment to make or simply look down and nod. I get it, because I used to be the same way.
Oh, how my views have changed. Not only do I support my husband in his work, I love meeting others who have such a strong passion for our country and who are willing to step out to try to make a difference and try to make the United States run smoothly and continue to be – united. That isn’t an easy job, especially when you are constantly in the spotlight.
When special holidays roll around where we celebrate our country, we like to go all out. We decorate our house in red, while and blue, my mom always throws a July 4th party, and we of course dress the part. Honestly, I wish we dressed patriotically year round. Not just 2 or 3 weekends out of the year.
I have a great respect for all of the people who protect our country, pass laws that keep us safe and all of the volunteers who help out in any way they can just because they love their country.
How do you celebrate the 4th of July?
