just wanted to wish everyone a happy and safe 4th of July! (and a happy berfday to my mom!) i gotta say, i hear folks complaining so much about this and that with the government or taxes or just generally feeling like they have such a crappy life here in the U.S. but i genuinely feel like i would much rather live here than any other country. not to say that whatever folks are complaining about aren't valid concerns for them - i'm not trying to trivialize their situations. but for me, i've immigrated from a different country (and legally too, mind u, cuz i ain't no law-breaker) and life has so many more possibilities here for me. i've gone back to the Philippines once and i couldn't wait to get back here. now i love my peoples, don't get me wrong, but it is just too dang hot over there! there's other stuff too but i won't get into it. all i'm sayin is that people immigrate to the U.S. all the time from every direction. so it can't be all that bad, can it?! sure there's things that need improving, but what doesn't, ya know?
anyway, enough rambling. just wanted to say "Thanx, America! Ur alright by me!" =P hope everyone is having their cookouts and time with family. i'm currently away from my family and friends right now cuz i'm on this trip. i'm feelin a little like Bella forsaking everyone i know to be with my Edward (my hubby). i'm just hoping that all of my mom's grandkids will make her not so upset with me that i'm not with her on her berfday. =/
