OK, before this sounds like a complete cliche, I want to say that I am so thankful that I live in a country where views and opinions can be expressed so freely and that there is not outright persecution for beliefs (although it may seem that way sometimes).
Today, I’m thankful not only for the freedom that we are provided in this country, but those who fight for that freedom every day overseas. Turmoil surrounds us and we oftentimes forget that there are people all over the world that are in the center of that turmoil, struggling to make sure that our interests and our freedom is protected.
I’m also thankful that we have been so blessed as to allow Alli the freedom to pursue her dream as an artist. It’s not always easy, but I have to say that it has been a blessing on both of us for her to be able to pursue her dream full time.
I’m thankful that we have that freedom and that she can do that.
