I hope you VOTED!

Today is Election Day in the United States of America!

What a glorious Blessing and privilege to be able to do that freely, without fear. I was accompanied to the poll by my 3 precious children. They definitely see the excitement and paid quite a lot of attention to the whole process. I could tell my daughter (who is 15) paid more attention this time, as I think she is thinking ahead when she will be allowed to participate in three short years. We talked about how there are people in this world that can’t really even understand the concept of being able to Vote and have a say in who their leaders are. Can you imagine? I honestly can’t.

So many Thanks and prayers go up for the brave men and women who fought and those who died doing so, just so that I could have that privilege.

Make sure you vote…it is not a gift given lightly.


  1. Great post!!

    I wanted to say thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving your kind comments. I am so happy to have found yours as well.

  2. Yep - I just wrote a tad about how important it is to me too. And I am glad you brought your children with you to the polls, I think that is very important.

  3. Remembering those who gave all so that we would have this right...

  4. I did!
    And honestly, though it doesn't strike me every time, it really did this time as I was finishing my ballot late last night...it's such a privilage to have my vote actually count...never want to take that for granted!

  5. I'm glad your 15 year old seemed interested, and I'll bet she'll follow your example in being conscientious about voting.


Thank you for stopping by...leave a little of your sparkle before you go!
