Thank You–Gratitude-15–When You’re Disappointed

Am I disappointed at the people’s choice to elect Donald J. Trump to the American Presidency? Very much so!

Trump to be in charge

 

Will I hit the streets in protest, tip over a police car, burn a shirt? Of course not!

And neither should you!

We had an election. Now we have transition of power in a way few countries enjoy. When President-elect Trump is inaugurated in January of 2017, he will become our main man.

What I’m grateful for today is that our main-man-to-be already has reached out to his detractors and his supporters for their help and understanding as he learns the ropes, so to speak, and our power people who lost in the election immediately congratulated him and offered him well wishes. President Obama met with President-elect Trump today and later referred to the meeting as “excellent.”

It’s what we do in America. We come together for the benefit of our Democracy and its survival. That’s a lot for which to be thankful! When you’re disappointed, thank your lucky stars for your benefits!

Since I first touched a pencil to paper, I've been writing. Where that passion has taken me as I lived life is explored in my Primary blog, "My Writing Life Xposed". I love animals, including race horses, about whom I have written much, and I've always had a dog in my life. Shouldn't animals have their say? In my Second Primary blog, "Horses and Animals Are Talkin", I give them a chance to speak. In the Composite blog "Near the Finish Line", I explore my life's journey and observations. Other interests -- poetry, sports, photography, thankfulness, story ideas, self-publishing, story art, fiction, and more -- get their due in my other (17) blogs. I'm from a rural community in Ohio, lived nine years in Vermont, then returned to my native Henry County in 1980. I've worked for various local newspapers and attended classes in writing over the years before retiring to free-lancing in 2008. It was after my migration back to Ohio that I began BAT Publishing in earnest. It is strictly a self-publishing enterprise in that I publish my own works -- novels, novelettes, short stories with my Roughcraft Art -- in my own softcover, or loose-leaf notebook, designs. My photos and artwork are also incorporated in the books. Prior to this endeavor, I produced a periodic story booklet for young writers only entitled "Connections". Its success sparked my interest in self-publishing my own titles.
