a campaigner's day



the door is opened after we knock. we are all smiles as the person behind the slab of wood stares in bewilderment at out entourage. Pops begins his spill: "hi, i'm marshall and i'm running for county commissioner. we were just out knocking on doors in the area trying to meet some people."

there's more and he makes it sound better than it looks on paper. i've known all along he's the man for the job. he goes into his plans for the county when he gets elected and a conversation is born. my duty is to hand out candy with our last name on it. i also am on the sign crew which involves hammering holes in the voters yard and placing our yard sign there {only after their permission}. normally its just Pops and me working together but this day my family, cousins, aunt and uncle are campaigning too. my cousin anna leigh and i make friends with a couple of kids. i ride their little tricycle and we have fun. many people are met, votes are promised and signs put up. sometimes a day campaigning is the best way to spend the day. we eat o'charley's. {because that's just the way of a campaigner's day.}

the happy hour

I wan't to respond to your comment on my blog yesterday but the email says do not reply so I figured I'd write it here. : ) First of all thanks for the sweet comment. second of all you are a beautiful girl!!! And there are many days when I put on my clothes and am not happy - like yesterday I tried on 10 pairs of pants and hated them all! We all have those bad self esteem days. I am working hard on not comparing myself to others and being thankful for the way God made me. But I get that it is hard - and sometimes shopping sucks! But try again - you are so cute! sorry you had a bad day. : ) and those pb bars would definitely cheer up you - although they're kind of healthy, so for real cheering up i'd back something even better. : )
