Happy Independence Day!

A few quotes on the topic of happiness to consider as we celebrate Independence Day...

We hold these truths to be self evident: that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness
~from the Declaration of Independence

Happy is he who has the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the Lord his God...
~Psalm 146:5

You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.
~Erma Bombeck

A safe and happy 4th to all!
