Time for Family

The picture to the left is mama with her family. Mama's mother is sitting down the rest are her brothers and sister. Her mom is 91 and doing great! Fourth of July they all get together to discuss family, religion and politics. They are very conservative in their political views so you can imagine how the conversation goes!

Regardless of their views they are a close family and the 4th of July is the time they all get together for a couple of days. They have a very strong opinion on family values.

We will be praying that this special time of year will find your family values strengthening and that remember - "Let Freedom Ring!"

How nice. Hubby's Grandma is 95 and doing great too.

I've always wondered what others talked about at family gatherings. We used to discuss politics and religion but sadly, we can no longer talk about our conservative political leanings without offending some.

Happy Fourth! I usually avoid talking politics and religion because I have a hard time biting my tongue. But it would be awesome to be with like-minded folks because then I wouldn't have to wipe the blood off my chin from tongue-biting! ;o)

Thanks Crossview !! Have a good 4th yourself! Come on up! I am sure there are some tongue-biting moments here as well! LOL
