Last week, the day after the election, my phone rang and when I looked at the caller ID, I was shocked. It said POLITICAL CALL. How can that be?, I wondered. The election is over.
I am so thankful for my called ID because it kept me from having to listen to countless political calls. I was in the same mode that day after the election so I didn't even have to think about answering. My internal auto-pilot kicked in and told me, we do not answer those calls. But as the third and last ring was sounding, my brain kicked in and I couldn't help but wish I had picked up just to see what the caller would say.
My chance came a few days later. [I don't know why it took them so long to get back to me.] My phone rang, the caller ID showed POLITICAL CALL, and I answered it.
It was the Republican Party. They asked me one question, "Are you satisfied with the results of the election or are you disappointed with the outcome?" I gave them my answer, they said thank you, and that was that.
I was wondering if anyone else got a similar call. I was also wondering to what purpose they were going to use this information. I'm always wondering. And I hope the political calls are done with, for at least a couple of years.
Dani called me today not because she needed anything, but just to talk to me, to catch me up on her life. It's a blessing to have the kind of relationship I have with my daughter. A close relationship where she wants to stay in touch with me and share her life with me. Thanks Danielle.
Blessing #11 in a month's worth of blessings.
