Thirty Days of Thankful – Day 2

As we watch election returns on another Tuesday evening in November, I am grateful for the opportunity I have to vote. I turned 18 the summer of 1990 and since then I have cast many votes, worked on a campaign or two and even been a deputy registrar. All of these civic duties were done in hopes of making the place we work, live and play a better place for our children and our children’s children.

Realizing now that my right to vote began less than 100 years ago makes me even more grateful.

We live in a broken world. But at least we are on the side of the world where women got to vote today. Thank you Lord, for simply placing me here, to exercise my right to vote and making me part of your great story.
