July 6th

I’m watching our annual fireworks with the family.

Celebrating America’s independence.

Isn’t that what we want?

To be independent?

I know Billy sure did.

Ever since he could walk and talk, he was all about doing things all by himself.

Sometimes it got him in trouble,but,that boy was a force of character, he had great determination and nerve.

He was bold and brave.

Maybe it was that moxy that made him face the stranger, his assailant ,on that fateful night.

Billy had the nerve to turn around and confront the man who was following him and his friends.

Billy loved his brother and his friends who were with them that night.

His boldness most likely saved the life of someone else.

The land of the free and the home of the brave.

Billy was brave.

I see that braveness and determination in Logan too.

I’ll do my best to shepherd Logan’s heart and teach him to use that grit and determination for good and to be a help to others.

It’s what Daddy would have wanted.
