I found out about this through one of my new fave blogs, Politics for Moms, who heard about it through her friend's blog, The Gang's All Here! ("And I told two friends, and so on, and so on, and so on...") Anyhow, even though it's Saturday, I love the idea of Freedom Fridays, a day to post a freedom that we are so grateful to have.
This Friday/Saturday, I'm grateful for the freedom to gather with those we love, whenever and wherever. I am grateful for the freedom to gather with those of like mind, or even of un-like mind, to discuss and debate that which we're passionate about. Tomorrow, we'll gather with all my sisters and their families. We'll come together at our mom and dad's, and laugh, reminisce about our crazy, wonderful childhood, celebrate Mom and all of us moms, and argue over who is the better candidate, Hillary or Obama, while a couple of the brothers-in-law (the ones from the "Dark Side") shake their heads and wonder what attracted them to these staunch, outspoken Democrat wives.
I'm grateful for our right to assemble. What freedom are you most grateful for? And by the way, Happy Mother's Day, all you moms out there!
