Who doesn’t love a freebie?!? Sometimes I think about the statement, “there are no free lunches.” Doesn’t always seem obvious, but someone still pays for the lunch; it just might not be you. I might use a coupon to get a product free, but the company still pays for that product to be given to me. Sometimes it’s easy to forget that simple idea, and I hope I will always appreciate the kindness and generosity of those offering freebies, whether it’s a tangible product or an idea that the life I know and love is built around. Especially during our holiday weekend, may we remember and appreciate the generous sacrifices that have been and are being made so we can be free, here in this life and in the life beyond.
