100 Happy Days - Day 3


Watching the 4th of July fireworks with loved ones made me happy today!

What you may think - I am living the American dream,  enjoying the holidays of this country.

What really happened - I was sitting on a picnic mat with family,  surrounded by hundreds of people as the beautiful colors filled the sky. It was a moment of happiness to be under the starlit sky watching the lights paint a picture before my eyes. I looked around as the crowd cheered as the fireworks displayed red, white and blue, they looked happy and proud.  I missed my country, and the feeling of that pride.

Hopped on to your blog through Shruthi's blog.

I get the same feeling while I watch 4th of July fireworks.
