52 Blessings

Week 5: Freedom to vote, thanks to our amazing forefathers.

Are you ready to
(if you haven't already)

Today is the big day and I went and did my duty and vote.
I am grateful for the blessing of living in a free country that allows us to vote and that was created upon firm and smart ideals. We had amazing forefathers who wrote amazing documents in the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence and formed a nation based upon a belief and a trust in God. They lived and died for our country and I love reading about their lives. I feel the least I can do to be patriotic in my own little life is to vote (even if politics is frustrating and riles me up a bit too much). Oh, and if you want an amazing book to read about the Constitution and our forefathers, pick up "The Five Thousand Year Leap" by W. Cleon Skousen.

Good for you! I voted even though I am despondent about the inevitable results.

Good girl. And ditto to April as well.

I wish we could have voted! We have to wait a month more (Texas). I'm thinking everything will be decided by then and it really won't matter!
