Crushing Anxiety

I will be taking a break from blogging until the presidential election is decided. This is an incredibly emotional election for me, my first as a mother. I feel as if more is at stake now than there ever has been before in my lifetime. I am scared, anxious and excited to see what the next couple of days have in store for my country. This is the end of a very long and trying struggle. As far as my family is concerned, there is only one choice for us. I know that Barack Obama is going to be the best president for me as a mother, as a social worker, as someone with a chronic illness, as a survivor of institutional child abuse. I have faith that my fellow Americans will make the right choice. I hope and pray that when I return to this blog, it will be to announce that my country has elected it's first black president, and that my daughter will grow up in a country in which truly anything is possible.

I'm right there with you on the prayers and hope. This is a big election and many things are possible. I've already voted, and it was for Obama. Hopefully my anxiety level will turn into elation come the final tallies.
