All Done, Thank You

I voted early today.
In fact, I was at the location that CNN has been showing on their broadcasts when they show the Really Long Lines in suburban Atlanta. Yes, I was one of the Frozen Masses waiting today in line.

Actually, it wasn't that bad. I brought a book but wound up striking up a conversation with the two funny ladies standing in line next to me (one was a lawyer, and one was an I.T. person).

The poll workers did a GREAT job. I made sure to thank them. I'm sure they get paid next to nothing and have to deal with scowling, grouchy people all day long, so I told each one how much I appreciated what they were doing.

And (just like Bob Schieffer said) when I was all done voting I felt "big and strong".

A good day. :-)

It's a privilege, for sure. I am grateful for it, though not the most-informed person on the face of the planet. We are blessed to be able to have a voice in this wonderful country. THanks for the reminder. God bless you.

Yay! Good for you!! It must feel so good to throw your weight behind he who inspires you. I'm doing the same. And I love that we're on the same page. :)
