For my U.S. Friends....

I know that today is election day... and I hope that all of you will vote! I have several friends in the U.S. - some democrats and some republicans... doesn't matter what party you vote for, just vote. I have been watching the election for weeks. I admire the way that everyone is so passionate about their candidate - I loved the debates and I really enjoy the updates on MSNBC. Today, I heard Maya Angelou talk about the first time she ever registered to vote - what an astounding woman she is. I did enjoy Sarah Palin too!! She seemed to add a little bit of excitement to the McCain campaign, not to mention how good natured she was on Saturday Night Live. If we don't see her in the White House this time, I am sure we will see her around in the next election. I wish our Canadian elections had the passion that the U.S. elections have! Our candidates only campaigned for one month - not nearly enough time

I had a nice surprise in the mail from Regina at Creative Kismit. She sent me a package of handmade cards from her etsy shop. Thanks, Regina.

And on a positive note, today I received a hug from a little girl in the reading program that I volunteer in. Totally out of the blue, and spontaneous - made me think why kids are the best people!

Thought for the Day
History, despite its wrenching pain, cannot be unlived, but if faced with courage, need not be lived again.
Maya Angelou

Its interesting to see what our election process looks like from the outside - but believe me, it can be quite tiring on the inside. Tonight is an exciting night and I for one will be happy when the process is done. All said...to vote is an honor and a privledge and always makes me feel pride for my country.

I agree with Deb - I am a Canadian too, and have been very interested in the U.S. election. It has been a long, hard battle. It was just announced the Barack Obama has been elected President.

You must all be exhausted. Congratulations, everyone! Shirley

Thank you for that, I have been glued to the TV and am sort of sad it is over. I'm glad you liked the ornament block I made and can't wait to get yours. I think this is the first time I have visited here and really love your blog. Thank you again.
