Proud of My MIL!!!

Here she is with The Maven, summer of 1989!

Political leanings aside, I admire the people who work the voting venues so we may vote.

My Mother-in-Law works the voting sites tirelessly every time there is an election.
She must be sworn in at 6am and then cannot leave until 9pm.
She has done this every election since I have known her.
She will be 77 years young next week.

I admire her beyond description.
She is a true patriot who feels that the individual CAN make a difference.
No matter who we vote for, we are in this together.
My second mother is an inspiration for not just her family, but I hope for everyone.

Every Vote Counts!
We should always exercise that right.

Amen - get out and vote or you can't complain! Right? Great MIL!

Very cool, I always admire people who volunteer their time to government needs.

Here in Canada we say "if you don't vote you can't complain" just check the other box and write in your own name. LOL

I often hear people say they won't vote for someone because "they won't win and my vote will be wasted". Voting isn't a jump on a bandwagon...the only wasted vote, is the one not cast!
Love the photo!
