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. ;)
