Well, it is done. I filled in my ballot and mailed it today. I thought it was very fitting as soon as I finished sealing the envelope I turned around and Little Miss Sunshine was sitting on the stairs behind me. She does this every morning - sneaks down quietly and sits on the steps and waits for me to notice her. She always has this precious smile, too.
It seemed very fitting for her to be sitting there because I had just placed my vote for her. Sure, I do it for all of us, but mostly for my kids. I do not want my kids to have spend their entire lives trying to fix things we are messing up now. I want them to look back and be grateful that we made good decisions that will positively affect their lives and the lives of their children.
I voted today so that she can remain smiling all of her life.
