Happy 4th of July, Military Families!
This is a day to keep your kids safe, happy and healthy. In honor of all the military families — and especially all of the busy military mothers out there across this good nation who can’t be home with their own children this year — my family says “thanks for your service and dedication.”
Here is a song that John Lennon wrote for his son Julian many decades ago; I feel like it’s especially fitting (I may be paraphrasing) for all the parents who cannot be with their kids today:
“Out on the ocean sailing away
I can hardly wait,
To see you to come of age.
But I guess we’ll both
Just have to be patient,
Yes it’s a long way to go.
But in the meantime,
Before you cross the street,
Take my hand.
Life is just what happens to you,
While you’re busy making other plans.
