Blue, I darkened the red and took away that sparkly thing at the top. My eyes cried this morning, too, when I arrived.

Giggle

Good morning, all! I hope you all enjoy this rainy day. Don't let the rain mess up your plans...just make plans to go with the rain. For instance, it would be a great day to eat a big meal and sleep. Yes

I work today. I can't imagine us being busy today, but either way, I enjoy working. It's like taking a break from homework. Boy, that's a sad existence, isn't it? HAHA! No, no, no, I am glad that I have a great place to work. It's not a fancy shmancy job, but I work with great people and most customers are a joy to help.

Love y'all! Have a good 4th!

So, just FYI...I thought I put my good mornings on the actual good morning thread.  Wow.  Although, it is Independence Day today...so I guess it's okay to say "hello" on it.  Smile  

Anyhoo, I love this poem and it suits the day.  So...


Concord Hymn
Ralph Waldo Emerson (1837)

     Sung at the completion of the Concord Battle Monument,
     April 19, 1837


By the rude bridge that arched the flood,
Their flag to April’s breeze unfurled,
Here once the embattled farmers stood,
And fired the shot heard round the world,

The foe long since in silence slept,
Alike the Conqueror silent sleeps,
And Time the ruined bridge has swept
Down the dark stream which seaward creeps.

On this green bank, by this soft stream,
We set to-day a votive stone,
That memory may their deed redeem,
When like our sires our sons are gone.

Spirit! who made those freemen dare
To die, or leave their children free,
Bid time and nature gently spare
The shaft we raise to them and Thee.
