Freedom the ability to do whatever you want.

Do you take your freedom for granted? Do you realize how fortunate you are to live in the US? Do you believe freedom is the most important thing to have?

One of our greatest pleasures is the ability to travel to the places we want to go to, experiencing the culture, and learning about the history of the countries we choose to visit.a freedom

We have spent the last eighteen days in Jordan and Israel. It has been very interesting and educational. What came up for me is conversations regarding the varying degrees of freedom they have. And it is all very complicated!

This week focus on what freedom means to you. Do you realize how fortunate you are? Have you traveled outside the US lately? What freedoms have you taken for granted?
