4th of JULY

Happy 4th of JULY! 
(Also a very happy birthday to my father!).
(Claire on the 4th of July in Provo, Utah, 2004)

We haven't nailed down our plans yet for today, 
but I see a berry pancakes, picnic at the lake, 
and a firework show with friends in our future.
I am SO thankful for this beautiful country I call home.
I am grateful for the freedoms I enjoy,
and soooo thankful for the men and women who fight 
to make it all possible.
God certainly does bless the USA!

UPDATE on Claire in Samoa:
 Claire's group finished the hut they were building for a family!
She looks tan with a few more freckles!
They are beginning to plan for their journey home on JULY 6th! 
(But who's counting?)
