Partly Sunny With a Chance of Election fever

So I had the fever, literally & politically. I am super sick again. BOO! I also got the fever to spread the word to vote, not only is it a right but our duty. Less than 100 year ago women were starving, jailed, and beaten fighting for my right to vote and it is my honor to live up to that legacy. So here are my past few days of grateful posts:

Today I am thankful for tea, soup, and someone who takes excellent care of me when I am super sick! Day 5 in my Month of Gratitude. Also, Happy Guy Fawkes Day and also please, please vote tomorrow. It is so important to vote for the person who will not set women's rights back and the person who will treat ALL our citizens as citizens and human beings and help fight for their right to marry whomever they love. Please put aside petty crap and vote with your heart and your humanity. There are more than 1 or even 2 candidates so educate yourself on all those who are running and all the propositions in your area. Vote and vote well Informed please!

 Today I am grateful to all of those who fought to get me my right to vote. I am grateful to be able to exercise that right today. Day 6 in my Month of Gratitude. VOTE!

That speech! Oh America... I'll say it again: let's move forward with love, honesty, humanity, and peace. Throw in some understanding, equality, tolerance, empathy, and vegan pizza and we cannot be beat! :D

Today I am grateful for love triumphing in so many states & for this: "I believe we can seize this future together because we are not as divided as our politics suggests. We're not as cynical as the pundits believe. We are greater than the sum of our individual ambitions and we remain more than a collection of red states and blue states. We are, and forever will be, the United States of America." Day 7 in my Month of Gratitude.

Today I am grateful for the following quotes to remind myself to love myself: "Learn to limit yourself, to content yourself with some definite thing, and some definite work; dare to be what you are, and learn to resign with a good grace all that you are not and to believe in your own individuality." -Henri Frédéric Amiel & “It takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.” -E. E. Cummings. Day 8 in my Month of Gratitude.  

Hope you are doing well dear chickens! Avoid this bug that I have caught again, it is a bugger. ;)
