THOUGHT FOR TODAY
We are all alike, on the inside.
It’s hard to believe that there really was a time when women couldn’t vote. But it’s true, it took an amendment to our constitution to make it possible. I’ve always believed that we are all created equal. I was taught that no one is better than me and I’m not better than anyone else. We were all created equal no matter what. We’re all precious in God’s sight.
I love being a woman and all it includes. I probably would not have joined the ranks of the women that did so much to ensure we got the right to vote. I loved staying at home being the keeper of the house and watching over my children and all that included. The cooking, the cleaning, the daily things that make a house a home were always something I enjoyed. Still and all, I’d love to see a woman become President.
We really have been enjoying some cooler days here, but they say we’ll be heating back up to summertime temps in the 80’s for the weekend. It’s not so cool as to make me chilly, just a nice respite from the heat.
I hope you all have a WONDERFUL Wednesday !
COUNTING MY GIFTS
Perfect love cannot be without equality.
