Kaye's Quilting Friends Newsletter, June 27, 2006
Kaye Wood's Quilting Newsletter
Hey everyone, I hope you're all doing fine. As you can see, I'm gearing up for the big 4th of July celebration coming our way. Amidst the barbecues, fireworks and celebrations, I hope you find the time to say a prayer for the men and women, who help protect our rights and freedom. Without these people who have and do sacrifice themselves, who knows where our country would be? Reflect on how hard our forefathers worked to secure the basic freedoms we take for granted everyday. Have a happy and safe 4th of July!
