My Thoughts on the Heels of the Election 2014

   For the past few months we've had our candidates under the microscope.  Trying to figure out who is the better person for the job.  Yesterday, Nov. 4, we spoke.  Many people are complaining slinging comments back and forth today.  Today is a new day and now instead of looking at the candidates, it's time to look at ourselves.

 "My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country."~ John F. Kennedy.  

   Today, look in the mirror and ask what am "I" going to do today?  How do you live your life to make the country better?  Is your money spent on American made?  Do you recycle or re-purpose?    Ask your boss what you can do to get a higher wage.  Don't just ask him/her about a raise....ask what YOU can do.  Have you been to Church to thank God for what you do have and not ask him for what you want?  Many times we confuse want and need.

     Watch how you're acting today...your kids are watching you.  Mark heard on the radio comparing mud slinging campaigns to kids bullying.  When you think about it, where do these kids learn it from?  Indirectly I've been called stupid and uneducated on recent facebook posts because of how I voted. Hmmm...something to ponder.

   As a business owner I know if I slack at my work the orders slip.  But if I'm working hard, the orders come in.  So I know sitting around waiting for things to happen doesn't work.

   We have 12-15 months before this all starts over again.  Today is ours and decide what YOU are going to do today.


  1. We need to be the best American we can be!

  2. Excellent thoughts Marlene. I may not be American, but the truth of this message is the same on my side of the boarder too.
