#1 NYT bestselling author Linda Lael Miller

In the words of Winston Churchill…

“Let us go forward together”.  The American people have spoken, and as far as I’m concerned, that’s sacred.  I don’t discuss my private political opinions, ever, but I feel strongly about complainers who never actually get to the polls.  Armchair-quarterbacking, I call that.  If more people would bother to vote (it’s compulsory in Australia, you know) things would change for the better.

I love your comments–Dad taught us to respect the office of the Presidency, no matter what your opinion of the incumbent.  I wish more people would do that.  I would love to see a lot less infighting and a lot more co-operation on both sides.    I don’t think any of us can judge the occupant of the Oval Office unless we’ve been there ourselves, with all the crushing responsibilities that come with the job.  Mercy, I’m just glad I’m in no danger of ever being elected!

I’ll be announcing this week’s book winners later in the day–I’m running behind schedule and must get to the book, which is now called “Big Sky Wedding” instead of “Big Sky Secrets”.  Since the heroine is Brylee Parrish, Hutch Carmody’s jilted bride from “Big Sky Mountain”, I think that’s fitting.  :)

My beloved editor and agent are hunkering down as another storm descends on New York, along with many other friends who live in the Big Apple.  All of you are very much in my prayers.

Stay safe.

      Amen, I love that. We are not suppose to judge anyway. We are just suppose to love and help each other. :lol:

    I am amazed at how many people in this world feel they can shoulder anormous responsibility, stress and frustration then complain when they themselves would cringe when given the task themselves or come up with an answers equal or better then those presented. I think its a form of immaturity. The trick is to learn when to listen to them and when to tune them out.

    My Grandfather I think said it best. The best shoes you should try to fill is your own. Personally I have problems just managing my own life and who am I to question any subject I have no knowledge of.

    That does not mean I am going to stop learning. Far from that I will learn everything my mind will allow in the time God allows. I am just comfortable letting those who are more knowledgable then I take the reins.

    If I were to be granted a wish maybe I should ask that others be given the wisdom to take that in and use it. And when I forget that lesson myself for some kind soul to remind me of what I just wrote.

    Our fathers must have grown up in the same neighborhood. Mine said pretty much the same – that no matter who the President was, he/she was the leader of our country and that we should show him/her respect at all times. I just wish that everyone would remember the pairing of Governor Christie and President Obama touring New Jersey following Hurricane Sandy, vowing to work together to repair the damages caused by that horrible storm. :wink:

    I’ve so grateful we live in a country with elections. Whether the candidates I prefer are elected or not, I pray that this country will starting looking to fix problems instead of fixing blame.

    I pray for all our leadership.

    My dad has always bad mouthed the government, but I on the other hand am grateful for their role in our freedom.
    And I’m grateful that our government dosn;t run around shooting people who disagree with them. We could be a lot worse off than we are. So I always try to get people to think of that before saying anything bad about our government and president.

    I think it is time for Congress to forget being a Democrate or a Republican and work together for the People of our great country. How sad that it has gotten to that point that they have forgotten that they are there for the People. They must come together for the betterment of our country. God Bless America.
