The Beauty of Freedom

Ciao bella,

Labor Day and the ending of summer is always a bit sad. This sounded like a great idea to overcome the “Labor Day Blues.”

My Happy Feet Spa friend Patricia and I were walking our laps in the outdoor pool. She said the best thing to do before summer is over is to make plans for the upcoming seasons autumn and winter. Whether it be some trips near or far, a concert, theatre subscriptions, lunch with the girls or even a new haircut and makeover. Made me feel good I could do those things, not only because I can but I have the freedom to do so!

Coming up on the 10th Anniversary of September 11th there are so many American freedoms to be grateful for even though they, unsuccessfully, tried to take them away. We can use cosmetics as well as clothing freely. Stroll down the street and choose any salon or spa that can paint our nails from green to black! We can apply lipstick and glittery eyeliner. Showy or conservative-it’s your choice—our choice of changing styles, having the blessed freedom to do so! We can wear short-shorts, maxi dresses, no sleeves, low cut, high cut cleavage AND booty enhancements!

So while we remember in our prayers the lost souls of September 11th—at least they all experienced the beauty of freedom and led lucky lives to be here in this grand United States of America for the time they walked her earth! When the only times a women covered her face was with her fan so she could flutter her eyelashes at her latest admirer!

On September 11th take that moment of believing in America and her beauty of freedom today and always.

Buona giornata and God bless the United States of America!
