A Very Difficult Day

I woke up this morning ready to write another blog post because I was so upset over a particularly nasty incident involving our mom. I checked my email and there it was, the perfect response written by my sister, Stacy. We started this blog together 8 years ago, but sometimes life gets in the way and she has had to step back from blogging. This morning, she’s back with a vengeance and I couldn’t love what she wrote any more.  Elle

Today was a very difficult day.  After staying up until 3am to see whose hands would hold the fate of our nation I was shocked, scared, and very disappointed.  The day continued with sadness as I browsed Facebook and saw post after post slamming Hillary or Trump.  The worst was friends and family members attacking each other for the outcome of this election.  Even my elderly mother was attacked on her own page by someone who voted for Trump.  I, of course, tried to defend her because 1. You don’t attack my mother 2. See number 1. This man called us baby killers.  This hatred sickens me.  This whole election has been sickening.  People have posted nasty things to each other and today here it was again.

I went back to bed and tried to block out the hate and the fear that I felt.  Most of the day I just went through it in a daze trying to wrap my head around what we have become.  Whether our candidate won or lost the election is over, when will the hate stop?

Some people made fun of those Hillary supporters crying about the outcome.  I was upset but I didn’t cry, not at first. It was when I started driving to work that it hit me and I did start to cry. Now I’m not someone who cries so what was going on? That’s when it hit me, I wasn’t crying that Hillary lost I was crying out of fear. Trump’s candidacy was based on him putting down women, trying to control them, demean them, and talk about assaulting them. This is the type of man we fear.

This man, to me, represents the first 17 years of my adult life.  This man represents everything that my ex-husband had been to me;controlling, demeaning, putting me down, and telling me that I wasn’t thin enough, pretty enough, etc.  He was the controlling man who forbid me to work because women should be at home.

To some people, he may represent the man who assaulted them.  To others, he represents the nameless faces who have taunted or teased them for being different.  He represents all the people who have discriminated against another person based on their gender, race or sexual orientation.

We’re fearful.  We’re fearful for our near future and for the future of our children. Is he going to do what he promised and deport millions of people, or take away Healthcare for others, eliminate coverage for preexisting conditions, will there be a wall between this country and another?  What about the Supreme Court, will he nominate someone who will change Roe vs. Wade or same-sex marriage?  These are our fears, each one is personal to someone, an American citizen, someone’s mother, wife, sister, brother, husband etc. And each one is real.

We have a right to be sad, we have a right to be scared and we have a right to be treated with respect. Just as those who voted for our new president have a right to be treated with respect.  There is no need to attack each other or call someone crazy or stupid for feeling a certain way. We are all in this together, one nation under God, to the republic for which it stands with Liberty and Justice for all.

Where Do We Go From Here?

Where do we go from here is what a lot of people are wondering this morning.  This isn’t the post I was hoping to write, but it’s our reality whether we want it or not. I freely admit I’m terribly disappointed, and so are my children, but I refuse to give up or give in.

I confess that one of my first thoughts was to take down the American Flag that hangs outside my house because I was so disappointed in my country, but then just as quickly, changed my mind. I need that reminder, now more than ever, that no matter how the election has divided us, we must find a way to become united or we all lose.

When I woke up my son for school this morning and told him that Donald Trump won the election, He groaned. I gave him a hug, told him we will be fine and that the outcome doesn’t change who we are as people, as a family, or how we treat others. We will be okay because I refuse to give in to hate and fear. The election results do not define who I am, or who my family is. We will always go high and will strive to be the change that we want to see in this country. We will always be for equal rights for everyone and fight against hate. 

To my beautiful daughters who were excited to be making history by voting for a woman for president, I say don’t forget that feeling. Yesterday showed us that we may have a way to go before a woman is elected president, but it will happen in our lifetime. Don’t let go of that momentum, don’t give up the fight. We are a force to be reckoned with and we will not go quietly into the night.

Today, I choose to remember the scores of women at Mt. Hope Cemetary in Rochester, NY standing in line for over an hour to visit the gravesite of Susan B. Anthony to leave behind their “I Voted” stickers. I will always be proud to be a Nasty Woman and it is up to us to decide where do we go from here.

New Foster Meow Monday

We have a new foster kitten in our house. She’s a tiny little thing, full of spunk, and she’s a purr-machine. Her name is Maple and she’s about 6-weeks-old, so we’ll have her for another couple weeks. We’ve been keeping her in our spare bedroom/office and our cat George has been dying to meet her. Finally, yesterday we let them get together. Maple loved George the moment she saw him. George had a hard time deciding between playing with Maple and playing with Maple’s toys.

Meet Lacey, our Lollypop Farm Pet of the Week.

Lacey  #33872125

Lacey is a 6-year-old female domestic shorthair mix with brown and black stripes. She’s available free of charge to approved adopters, age 60 and over, through Lollypop Farm’s Seniors-for-Seniors program
