There are so much articles and social media postings written about animals having trouble during the fourth of July, but many of us also have trouble with fireworks and lights and loud sounds.
As I reflect on the fourth of July, I am happy my family is able to enjoy the simple pleasure of the fireworks, and the festivities. I often feel like I miss out on life, but I have to remember the love and liberties and happiness that I do have. It is easy to see the world in a negative light. We live in a time were the world of technology and medication makes the work a brighter place.
If you or a loved one has trouble on the fourth, I hope that you keep in mind the struggle, and give the person extra love and space to process the loss of ability, and reflect on the positives.
