The Strength of America...

       “The great and admirable strength of America consists in this, that America is truly the American people.” - Jacques Maritain
       Like America, our 4th of July Birthday Girl is a strong one too! In fact, Andie loves to demonstrate her abilities by picking up her mom or siblings and Webb is a much better sport than I am about getting scooped up.  
       While I might give Andie a hard time about some of her purported superpowers, I have to admit that, at times, she can be a  force of nature (in a good way of course :) 
       Steve Maraboli said:  “Life doesn’t get easier or more forgiving, we get stronger and more resilient.”  And, it’s true.  Life can be full of surprises and Andie’s had her fair share of bumps in the road but she always rallies and carries on.  So, yes, I’m inspired by her tenacity and strength; even if I prefer not to be carried around.  
       Happy Birthday to the USA and Andie K! Shining examples of strength in action!
