You know how you have certain friends in your life for awhile. You hang with them for years, but then something changes in your life, or theirs, and you don't see them anymore? Then they become an acquaintenance, or an "old" friend. Well, I had one of those friends at one time. He became an acquaintenance. He ran for Mayor for our town. I did not vote in that election and I can't remember what my excuse was, but I'm sure it was lame.
He lost by ONE VOTE.
A couple of weeks later I went into a small store and there he was, face to face, we looked right at each other. I hung my head down in shame....
I learned a lesson.
He would have made a good Mayor.
I changed everyone's life in this town. (OK I might be being a bit dramatic here....but still....)
A few years later another person I knew was running for City Council. My husband wasn't going to vote. I told him to get in the car and I literally drove him to that election.
My friend won by two votes. Ours!
Moral of this story....get off your arse and
It makes a difference.
PS - I'm having computer problems again. Don't know from day to day if it's going to work. I'll explain more later, but my point is, if you don't hear from me, it's because my computer ain't working correctly. bummer for me.
