Four Votes

Our family decided to wait to vote on the “official day” of voting; the first Tuesday of November.  That’s because our two oldest children were able to cast their first votes in a presidential election.  Abbey went with her father this morning at 7:00 a.m.; a five-minute wait.  Eric and I went at 9:30 a.m. with no wait.  This was the first time I was able to use a computerized voting system; it was pretty cool.  We all wore our “I Voted” stickers and will be eagerly watching the results.

I feel each candidate for President has his pros and cons.  I went with what I felt was most important overall.  Whoever wins, I look to hope for what that person brings for the positive and hope for the best with his negatives.  I am proud to live in the promised land of America and pray that Heavenly Father continues to bless us.
