So now you have all the ingredients you need for a wonderful 4th of July Weekend. Depending on where you live, will help you decide how you’re going to spend it. If I lived in Colorado, I wouldn’t be going to the beach; instead, I’d be going to the mountains.

As it is, I now live in Concord, NC. I could drive to the beach (> 3 hours) or to the mountains (< 2 hours). But as it is, I’m staying in the area. My family and I went to the Harrisburg parade this morning; and now they went off to a splash pad up in Kannapolis to cool off in this 90 degree weather. Tonight, we’ll be enjoying the fireworks in the city park.

I hope everyone has a safe and fun holiday weekend. Be sure to leave your destinations/favorite foods etc in the comments area. Would love to hear about some cool places to visit.

About the Author:

My name is Susan W (sue) Corbran. I am a writer, a Creative Memories consultant, a volunteer in Children's Ministry at my church, and an advocate for widows and gay Christians. I love helping people - whether it is by sharing my stories; consulting with others on how to preserve their most precious memories - photos and ways to tell their stories; or helping children learn about God - and for them to know that He loves them, no matter what! I am a Mom and a Grandma. I love to golf, travel, read, and listen to music (and play the piano and guitar, when available - simple songs!). Oh and I love to write - so be sure to read some of my blogs. I am a co-author of the book Emerge: Real Stories of Courage and Truth, An Amazon Best Seller, 2015, along with The Call to Soar, an Amazon Best Seller, 2016. An author of the ebook Five Simple Ways to Love Gay Christians You Need to Know Now, 2017, and other numerous blogs and articles for magazine contests. This year, 2017, I plan to publish a series of books for young adult (ages 9-14) in the genre of Christian Life. I also hope to publish a book of childhood memories (to share with my grandchildren). My hope is that God willl be praised and glorified by my writing for Him.
