Living free and living happily

That big boom just made me jump. The teens are out in full with the fireworks now. Hopefully, we'll catch a glimpse of a vibrant color pop in the sky soon.

We had a joyful, easy Fourth of July together. The six of us jumped into the cool town pool and let the sun warm our shoulders. No worries about finding the next job hung around our necks today. We felt truly free to let it be and exhale. Happiness is freedom. Happiness is release. Happiness will rejuvenate.

Sending bouquets of happiness to all of you, my friends. I have an idea or two for the next vlog. I remember my promise about karaoke. So you all decide: Should I sing a little bit of the Beatles or a little bit of Elvis? I promise that my singing will only last about 20 seconds. I don't want to scare you all off. (My kids have double dared me to do this karaoke vlog. The Bronx girl in me can't turn down a dare.)

I double dog dare you! Sounds like you had a great day with your family"! Glad about that!

I hope you sing for more than 20 seconds. All of your daring Vlogness is motivating me to do it. Now if I could just get the kids out of the room - you know that's exactly when Deaglan will throw a tantrum and Naveen will be desperate for my attention! I miss you my friend. Time just flies these days. I'm sending you some big hugs!

Happy belated 4th of July! So glad you and your family took a day off and got some happy time.
I triple dog dare you to sing on your next vlog and it should be an Elvis song (A little less conversation?)

Living free is the best freedom. I am thankful for those who have made sacrifices to give us continued freedom.

Happiness is family , friends, and at my age I am especially focused on good health, and following my passions.

Thank you for the bouquets! I return bouquets of happiness to you.

Good post.

Somewhere Over the Rainbow.....
