No Hodgepodge today since Joyce is swimming in a sea of boxes while waiting for her furniture to arrive! Oh, and apparently is without internet. 😒
So...this is unusual for me, but, with the current events in our nation's history, here are some thoughts about the election:
🗽A couple of people had this in their Facebook statuses: Hate won. No, hate did NOT win. I think morality won. I'm not saying our President-Elect is the epitome of morality...he's far from it. If he stands by his platforms, this country will be back on track to gain back some of her morals.
🗽Women voting for Hillary because she's a woman and they want to see a woman in the White House is just wrong. To say so on national tv is just embarrassing.
🗽I don't like change. There, I said it. Any time a new president is elected, there's going to be change. The older I get, the scarier it is. But, you know what? The USA survived Carter, Clinton, and the Obamas (why is it always plural and not just him? Hmmmm) ...we'll continue to survive. Our country isn't perfect, but it's still the best there is!
🗽As a Catholic, Hillary scares the ever-loving crap out of me. Her anti-Catholic rhetoric and ideals are just frightening to me.
🗽Best post I saw this morning (from 1 of my Kindergarten teachers...thanks, Hailey!): "You get what you get and don't pitch a fit." Be an adult, be proud of our country, be thankful you live in a country where you can vote and not be afraid of being persecuted because of it.
🗽Four & eight years ago, I had to endure co-workers boasting. I sincerely hope there will be no boasting (or fit-throwing). As a friend of mine posted on FB: "One thing I know; it is not the responsibility of ONE president to make sure I'm OK. It is MY hard work, effort, the love of my family and the everlasting love of my God that will carry me through." (Thanks, Maria!!!)
🗽Best picture on FB this morning:
🗽Last May, when I heard Father Leo Patalinghug talk, the race was just in it's early stages of being frantic. He said that in the end, this nation will still be 1 nation under God. Continue to pray for our country; don't stop just because the election is over. She needs as many prayers as she can get!
🗽Finally, I saw this youtube clip yesterday. Nice to see our northern neighbors reminding us how great this country really is!
