~We did it!

I could not sleep on election night waiting for updates on TV & the computer. I felt like it was Christmas! Through Prayers, Fasting, Faith, listening to our church leaders & a Miracle - "WE DID IT"! I'm so grateful for all who supported & worked on Proposition 8 (for MANY weeks). Even up until the end with youth standing "peacefully" out in the rain at 6AM holding signs (again) one last time!

It was interesting to be a "Pole Watcher" for a couple hours by myself & later helping with many others at our "Headquarters" from 9am to 8pm (doing MANY tasks & eating - I was distracted by all the good food). Everyone has a story behind this. For me it's another miracle in my life & I feel comforted (for now) and happy for what I supported!

Thanks you guys, for all your hard work & for voting yes on 8! :) I also woke up (after 3 hours of sleep) feeling that for me this is a "New Beginning" to a great future in many ways! I feel blessed & I am thankful.

Hooray!!! Wasnt it so interesting being a poll watcher? I am really glad we were asked to do that. Such a neat experience along with the excitement calling up until the last minute at the "headquarters" A life changing experience I will never forget.

We did do it!!! I was up till 1am waiting to hear, and up at 6 to start checking the results. That was such a wonderful sight to see. I totally agree that it was truly a blessing. I too have gained such a strength from this whole experience!!! Thank you for all you and your family did as well.

I was so nervous as well for us and you guys in California. It is a blessing and so thankful it did get past. That is awesome how your family all got out there to support the Prop.

Awesome sister! We sometimes have to do things out of our comfort zone and stand up for things we believe in and most importantly the future of our children. God is on our side! =) You worked hard and I am proud of you! xo
