False Evidence Appearing Real

Today I went for a second look mammogram. I had the first one two weeks ago. And I spent the time in between battling the Fear (False Evidence Appearing Real). What a waste of time that was as the report today was positive or negative however you view it. They saw nothing! And I am overjoyed. The prayers of my friends and the support of one special person who went with me is greatly appreciated. I was going to go by myself and then thought why, I don't have to be superwoman this one time. We celebrated after and it was just as good to have someone to celebrate with as it would have been to have someone to lean on.

The Sun Shines On Change

This is the line as my Neighbor Darlene  and I approached our polling place. We arrived at 6:25am only to find that there was no place to park so we went a couple of blocks away and parked in a Kroger's parking lot. The mood was festive, electric with hope. Darlene and I talked about what this election could mean to the youth of our community they may actually see what we have told them all the long: YES WE CAN be anything we dream we can be.

When we arrived dawn had not come
But we stood with many of our neighbors in 35 degree weather to usher in the change of our choice. Darlene was moved to tears as were others. 
I hope you get out and vote! We are making History today. As I type this I am watching Barack cast his vote and OMG.
