Voting Day!

I became a naturalized citizen on April 29, 2007.

I’ll never forget the nervousness and excitement I felt the very first time I voted.  I was so scared I would make a mistake.  I managed not to color outside of those little ovals (Mom always taught me to stay in the lines).

Although I’ve voted in a number of elections since my swearing-in day, I always get chills up my spine as I watch my ballot get slurped into the box.

I hope that you exercised the right that so many people fought (and are fighting) to secure for you.

May God continue to bless this amazing country!

  3. A naturalized citizen? Wait… How did I not know this? Tell me more!!! 🙂 (Am I have morning brain or something?)

  4. Yes, you have been keeping a secret? I would never have guessed that you were not born in the United States. I think we all want to know the rest of the story 😉

  5. I’m glad I’m not the only one who didn’t realize you weren’t born in the US! My MIL became a citizen before the last Presidential election. That was something we didn’t ever think she would do!
