30 Days of Thanksgiving: Days 13 & 14

30 Days of Thanksgiving
Day 13-14, 2012: I just got back from voting.  Yes, it was a bit cold out this morning, cloudy and dreary as well, but I was not missing the opportunity that most of this world never knows.  I got to walk into a warm building, be greeted by friendly and helpful poll workers, stand in line with strangers who all seemed pleasant and happy to be there and boldly, without fear, cast my vote for who I think should lead our great nation.  I am so thankful that I have that freedom. 

I am also thankful for a special group of girlfriends.  We have come together through a mutual love of books to form a little book club.  Through our shared love of words we have developed a wonderful, supportive sisterhood.  Although we only officially meet once a month, I am so thankful for these sweet women and the special blessings they are. 


And you will say in that day: “Give thanks to the Lord, call upon his name,
make known his deeds among the peoples,
proclaim that his name is exalted. “Sing praises to the Lord, for he has done gloriously;
let this be made known in all the earth.
Isaiah 12:4-5 (ESV)

I got up early to go so I didn't have to go after class. I still get as excited as I did the first time.
