Did you know it's Election Day? For whom should I vote? #jokes #nooneforpresident
I am grateful to live in a country where I'm free to vote and where I feel no danger at the polls. I am grateful for the freedoms and rights I've been given through the hard work and sacrifice of many others.
I'm glad my Norwegian and German and English and Irish ancestors moved here and settled where they did and that I've been given the life I have by my creator.
And even more so today, I'm grateful that my hope and my trust is not in worldly governments, in political parties and in popular or electoral votes. My hope is not in the president, it's in the King. I'm grateful for the communion of saints praying for us (and maybe rolling their eyes a little bit) and that I have the hope of heaven. I'm grateful for St. Teresa of Avila's wise words which have consoled me through several election cycles.
- Wallflowers Pandora station. Right now it's playing Goo Goo Dolls' "Better Days." Well played, Pandora.
- Fond memories of staying up late into the night with one of my best pals watching election 2000 results. It was our first time voting and we were so excited. Little did we know it wouldn't be settled for weeks! Still fun though!
