independence day..........

Every time I hear the word independence I think of so many things..... One thing is freedom of speech. Most who know me know I love to talk. Honestly growing up I was told i could take about anything! That is still true today! Also I love giving speeches I was that weird child growing up who enter into speech contest and wanted to see if I have won. Now I have a son who loves to talk as well, he is so much like his mommy its crazy! Next thing I think of is freedom of Religion. Being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Ladder Day Saints has been a blessing in my life, and I know that without hat freedom we may not have the church! Next I think of the men and women who are willing to honestly lay down there life's for protecting us and our great nation! One more thing I think of is my right to be healthy or fat. I know that my life has been up and down with my weight, I am not the same girl I use to be. With that being said I have always had the choose to decided what I wanted to look like and how I was going to be able to get to the place I wanted. Growing up I was skinny I was after the girl who had stick arms and legs and boobs. lol But then I hit middle school and my life changed, I was never fat, but never where I used to be. I still was made fun of in high school but this time for different reasons. It wasn;t Intel I went to college where I had some great roommates that helped me see who I really was. That I didn;t have to hid myself behind the fact that I was bigger. I met a great man in college who showed me that he loved me because of who I am and not just for what I looked like. Now I am not the same girl when he married me, I am a 30 lbs more girl, but he still loves me. I have taken this pregnancy as a way to make myself not fall back into where I used to be. I am making right choice, walking, doing wii fit which is honestly fun. My sister just got a pool and it was so nice to swim in it. I may be there more then she wants me to be! lol But honestly without this freedom we have there would be no way we could do what we do everyday. We would give up when we made a wrong choice or maybe even be punished for it. So I am thankful for my friends who are there for me, who help me through good times, and most inmportanly the bad times. I am thankful that I can blog like this and not feel like I will be shot. So thank you to the men who made it possible for us to live in a free country! God bless the USA and all of you!
