Years ago I visited Normandy Beach with my Grandfather. It was for the 60th year anniversary of D-Day. I am so grateful for the freedom I have because of people like my grandfather who fought for me. Words really cannot express the feeling of being on that beach. I felt so much sadness, as well as gratitude.

I have visited many countries and have had the privilege of singing in many places. I always feel so blessed to come home to the United States Of America. I love my country. I want to give thanks to the Veterans on this Independence Day and for all those who are serving our country now. Thank you for taking care of this beautiful land, for keeping the peace and for helping me feel safe.

I use the daily journal to write down 5 things I am grateful for daily.

Today, I am grateful for:

1. My Grandfather
2. My Freedom
3. My Family
4. My Faith
5. All those who help to keep this land beautiful, and safe.

Have you written down your daily 5 yet?

Hope this encourages you!
