Attitude of Gratitude ...Day 5

(Yes, I'm still catching up....)

Today, I'm grateful to live in a country where on the morning after a major, national election, we do not awake to riots and bloodshed, but instead, simply wake up to headlines like this....

This picture also represents how I get news....
Yes, I'm a nerd, my homepage for my laptop is The New York Times.
One of my favorite Sunday activities (pre-children's ministry) is to get up, pick up a New York Times at Starbucks and sit and devour the entire edition. I could read a Sunday Times for days - it's so huge....(of course, I don't live near a Starbucks, to do this on Sunday right now...lol).

I also get my news from reading the Arkansas Democrat Gazette - the biggest paper in the state. If I was still in Mo, I'd read the Kansas City Star - but here in NW Ark, I have to stick with the Democrat Gazette.

Here's a funny quote for ya, concerning national elections.... (not necessarily about this one...)

Do you ever get the feeling that the only reason we have elections is to find out if the polls were right? Robert Orben.

  1. I was just looking at random blogs and really liked this thread so I decided to let you know. I also really like reading the newspaper I think that caring for things happening in the world is a great thing.

    Have a good day
