Get Involved! Vote!


What is it about voting that warms my heart so much? I just feel so American when I do. You think about the women that fought so hard for this right, and it is disrespectful NOT to vote!

Today we have Mommy and Me preschool class and I am dragging Landon to the polls before hand! I want to get my vote in! I know some people think it doesn't matter, but you can't complain about the way things are in this country unless you choose to speak up! I am voting on a bunch of different things and done my research. I am ready! Are you?

Last night my small group discussed the book we are reading together "The Shack". This book is a deep river I tell ya. It really delves into faith, or lack of faith, due to a terrible tragedy. It's brought up some amazing things.

Yesterday I got the call that the amnio was normal. I just cried! I was so happy. I know the sex...and will reveal on Friday!!!!!!!

So happy for you for the test results!!! When I was pregnant I found this verse and I love to share it with other moms and I pray this for you:
Isaiah 40:11
"He tends His flock like a shepherd;
He gathers the lambs in His arms
and carries them close to His heart;
He gently leads those that have young."
I read The Shack by myself and wish I had a book group to talk about it with - I'm curious about what you thought of it.

Also, we just started reading The Shack in our bible study... not sure what I think of it just yet. I am only 80 pages in.

My fiance and I voted this morning and I feel so proud to do so. It is wonderful to live in a country where we can express out opinions and vote peacefully.

Congratulations on the test results!!! I know that is a big weight off of your heart. I voted early and did some serious research this time. For many reasons, I had a really hard time deciding. It felt good to finally make a decision.
I can't wait to hear what you're having!!!

Hooray! So happy to hear that baby is healthy...what an answer to prayer!

Live.Love.Eat said...

Congrats on your normal amnio and thank you for stopping by!!!! I am still in the middle of the The Shack and have been very slow with it for some reason. I feel it's a good read though I haven't been picking it up as often as I would like.

Leslie said...

It does feel "American" do vote! Glad I ended up doing it! I can't wait to hear the sex of the baby! I will definitely be checking your blog on Friday!! Not sure if I have told you this, but I love your blog. I love the celebrity sitings too! If I lived in LA, I would totally be stalking them out!! The few times I visited, I just loved running into a celebrity on the street or shopping in the same store as I was...somehow it made me feel "cool." I am definitely adding your blog to my daily reads!!

lizziefitz said...

Friday seems so far away!!!! I am thrilled for you:) xoxoxoxox!!!!

The 5 Bickies said...

Yeah for NORMAL!
Now for the sex...can't wait!

Yes I voted too. I talked to a new citizen who was so overwhelmed to be able to vote in this election. She couldn't leave her polling place. She wanted to stay and take it ALL in. Sure makes you see the right to vote in a whole new light.

Preppy Sue said...

Glad everything is okay! Can't wait to hear if it's a boy or girl!

Petunia said...

Yay and congratulations on the normal amnio! Now you can relax and enjoy! :)

Cindy said...

Oh, what wonderful news!!! Can't wait to hear the rest of it on Friday!

We always vote by absentee ballot so I can sit down and sift through all my campaign lit. It's certainly more convenient, but I do sort of miss my trip to the polling place.
