Happy 4th of July
We at Skeeterbuggins Productions wish everyone out there a Happy and Safe 4th of July.
This day has been important to me for a lot of reasons. The given is it's the day we celebrate the anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence.
For me though, it was an extra special day because it was my father's birthday. So I always looked at this day in a different light. It was one of celebrating a life. Someone becoming another year older.
I never truly thought of this day as "Independence Day". It was always Dad's birthday.
This year, my dad has been gone for 11 years now. Still today, I think of today as his birthday first. I imagine I always will, but I love that. I love that every year there is a celebration on this day, which in my mind is for him!
So, stay safe out there, be smart (both in the traditional sense with safety and now with COVID-19) and enjoy the day!
