Happy Birthday America

Happy OWH blog hop everyone! Thanks for stopping by.
As you can see my birthday card is to America and simple.
I can not believe America is 234 years old. It seems like yesterday we celebrated the 200th birthday. I remember all the patriotic attire people were wearing, how the towns and cities painted their fire hydrants as patriots and the fireworks that year were spectacular.
I found a video titled "Thank You", if you have time this busy weekend I hope you will take a few moments to watch it.
God Bless America!

    Thank you. Oh my gosh, the song "Thank You" by Daniel Smith is captivating and I visited his site which is terrific. Did you know that his song is the theme for another organization that I'm sure OWH members would enjoy as well? So thank you for sharing everything in this post!
