Roll Up Your Sleeves

Thankful Thought #9

I think everyone's waking up a bit shocked today and after a good cup of coffee, or four,  I've got one thought on my mind: It's time to get to work. I'll be honest, this morning I didn't quite have the heart to be thankful. I thought I'd be writing about something completely different today. I think we all did. Totally dumbfounded and feeling a concerned, shocked. All those things and more, but I refuse to sit in a puddle of worry for long. 

9. I'm thankful today that even when it feels like a blow, you can roll your sleeves up, get in there, and make a difference. I'm more than ready to make a difference. I'm more than ready to learn, get some understanding and speak up a bit more. I'm more ready to hit my knees for guidance and help. I'm more than ready to take on these next four years. I refuse to sit back this go around. 

Whatever your vote, the decision is definitely done but our ability to speak up is still there. May we stand together, may we work together, may we focus on what needs to be done and not what cruel words can be said. We're in it together now, America. Better pull your hair back, heat up the coffee pot, and get ready to work 'cause we don't know how the heck this next term will turn out!
