Yesterday, we bundled up and hit the polls to cast our VOTE!!
It was such a treat to take the Boys with me. We have spent the past month explaining to them how rules and laws are made, and how WE, as Americans, have the privilege and right to help decide on these laws, as well as our leaders. What a blessing that is! We explained how many people all over the world, live in places where they have NO voice, no say-so. People fought hard for us to have those rights, and we must never take them for granted.
It was so cute to see the Boys playing a friendly game of "Presidential Rivalry". All week they would banter with each other.."Mitt is going to win!!"..."NO! Obama is going to win!"..They have no idea about either candidate (and we are the kind of parents that feel it is best to KEEP it that way! They are children, after all!). Anyway, it was cute...they were split down the middle, as to who THEY were going to vote for. (Pretty much like our Country)..
And so, we cast Mom's vote...and headed back home..knowing that we would wake up to the results.
Regardless of your political stance, you HAD to be excited about this election! I found my stomach in knots as the votes were coming in. As hard as I tried, I just couldn't hang on to hear the results. That's OK....I had pleasant dreams, anyway...
The Boys were excited to wake up this morning and to find out if THEIR candidate had won. Obviously, one was really excited..one was not...
We explained that whether or not YOUR candidate won, we are still ONE nation under GOD indivisible, with LIBERTY and JUSTICE for ALL----and for that, we should be ETERNALLY grateful!! We have a voice!!
