Not exactly what you thought you'd see for a thankfulness post title, huh?
Well, see, it's like this. I was going to vote. Really, I was. But the cold/sinus/whateveritwas yuck came to visit me and I was IN.THE.BED.ALL.DAY.
That does not, however, diminish my gratitude for the freedoms I enjoy every day. As with the electricity, water, food, etc. I have at my disposal every day that I take for granted, the rights I have based solely on my location on Planet Earth are gifts I don't think of nearly often enough. But, even though I didn't get to exercise my right to vote, I'm still grateful for the chance to do so. And I'm praying for those that were elected into office, that they learn from the past and look forward to the future.
