My desk has a window that faces the street and across the street is the 6th Precinct of West Chester's polling location at the First Presbyterian Church. All day I have been watching the line of voters grow and shrink, grow and shrink. And there's a bit of excitement or anticipation around the office and I suspect that productivity is not the word of the day.
Here are two things that I read today that made me feel ok with whatever the outcome will be and also the fact that I believe that there is a higher power that is in control of what is happening in our country and world. I have gratitude that I could wait in line to vote today and I have hope.
Comfort During Fearful Times – Hope-Making by the Comfort Queen
"When we remember our fears do not define us.
Today, I cry with gratitude and hope for the ideals of our country. Flawed and dented as they may be, they are ideals each person who casts a vote today is living."
