Independence Day in Poland!

I mean, seriously!  We could not have asked for a more beautiful day of weather to celebrate Poland’s Independence Day!   

And we, meaning my awesome family, celebrated true American style—all dressed to a T in Polish colors:  white and red!

We ate Polish flags for breakfast and sang patriotic Polish karaoke and delivered homemade Polish and American flags with the traditional rogale to our neighbor who lives alone and has no family.

 

We went into town and watched the March and fed and chased pigeons.



Wait.

What do pigeons have to do with Poland?

Completely nothing.  It’s a European thing 😉

The night ended at a restaurant off the square and ice cream for dessert.


Reflecting upon today, we thanked God that we live in a country that is free and safe.  A country that provides an education for our children and allows us to worship Him freely.

We may be Americans celebrating Polish Independence Day, but we do so with as great of pride of country as our fellow Poles.

Thank you, Poland, for this opportunity to live in your land—and thank you, our Polish  friends, for being a country of unending resilience and an example of freedom!

We love you!
