I am so excited!
I have been a virtual ball of excitement since The Announcement yesterday.
I have also been reading, with disappointment, the debate going on surrounding said announcement.
We have a shot at getting an incredibly strong, pro-life, pro-family team into office. I don’t think it’s our place to judge what kind of mother she is. Do we think she’ll be a good VP, and possibly president? That’s what we should be judging at this point. And yes. I do. “Lack of experience” and all. She is convicted and carries the courage of her convictions no matter what the general opinion happens to be. She’s proved that both in her personal life and her political life. She’s also, despite the “working mom” issue, proved how much her children do in fact mean to her. While I don’t choose to work outside the home for pay (remember the rather large “church” project I’ve worked on last year, and now this as well???? The one that takes a year to make happen, yep, that’s the one.) I can’t make a huge judgement on how, or why she chooses the opposite path of mine. I am not in her family and I have to trust that she is making the correct decision for her children in her decision to run. I have to believe that she takes seriously the conviction that what we are leaving our children as our legacy has to be better than what it is now. It has to improve. She isn’t sitting back and talking about changing it, leaving it up to others, she’s taking the bull by the horns and moving, full steam ahead. I have to admire that.
I am suddenly, happily, engaged in this election. I can not wait for my chance to vote.
Thank you Sarah Palin!!!
