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.
Beautiful boy.”Add a Comment
