Nearly Wordless Wednesday

15 10 2008

 I got out of the shower to find a voice mail waiting for me on my work cell phone;

 “Hey Auntie, where do I go to register to vote?”

 Words cannot explain how happy I was.

 I called her and told her where to go and what to bring. I also told her how proud I was of her and that sometime between now and election day I wanted to sit down with her and talk about the candidates. She said that was fine but she already knew who she was voting for. I asked her why she chose her guy and she couldn’t tell me.

“That’s why I want to talk about it. You need to have good reasons for why you are voting for your guy.”

“How about I tell you why I am not voting for the other guy!”

She had some damn good reasons. 

 She has come so, so far.  This is part of why I love my job so much. I get to witness these “normal everyday” things that these kids never dreamed of doing while they were using. 

 After I got off the phone with her I called her PO and shared the good news with her too. I also told all of my co-workers who have worked with her in the past.


 Nearly wordless Wednesday? Not so much.
