wow. watching the election coverage on all the channels (actually just 2-22 because cox decided to cut my cable to basic while I bit my nails in anticipation watching Fox and CNN- like seriously- why right then?!) and I feel hope! I know that there is a lot of negativity about this from most of my Christian friends, but the country has decided and I’m going to move on from here and support our new president. I had to vote according to my conscience today at the polls and even as I cast my ballot I kind of wanted to vote for the other candidate. I still feel like there is a lot that is questionable and even though I love lot of his policies, I couldn’t vote for Obama. (in fact, I HATE a lot of them!) But, as I said, I’m excited! What will come? I’m not going to post negative comments as my status on facebook like “I’m moving to Mexico (or Canada)”, “did the anti-christ arrive?” or “the country is going down the crapper” and loads of other negative things. This is the last thing we need now is anger and disrespect for our new president. I didn’t like some of George Bush’s policies, but I never bashed him! Didn’t you, my friends, somewhat hate it when people did? Be the bigger person now and grieve, but ultimately move on. I AM sad, but I choose to be hopeful. Perhaps we’ll embark upon the best four years of our lives- or even, if they are the worst, make the most of them. I’m going to love my husband and baby and family and friends regardless of who is my president. I know that I’m a hippie and all, but isn’t all we need love, people? and as (myself some-what) conservative Christians especially, lets give the world some when they aren’t expecting it!
