Tiny Tales Thursday...

This tale isn't so much about something the kids did or said, rather it's my way of documenting the history that was made this week sealing for them a world of change.

Cindy and I were texting today and gabbing all about the tears we shed over this rendition of Fight Song...

Before you read another word, watch the video, pause and reflect on the greatness of  Lemon Breeland and Tami Taylor, and then wipe your eyes. Not because of it's catchy tune or A-list celebrities, not even because I think Hillary is the greatest, but because of what this really means.

As Cindy said, "Katy, our kids only know a world where America has a black president and a woman in the running."


Read that again.

Our kids only know a world where America has a black president and a woman in the running.

Political views aside - this is amazing. Right now, we are part of an incredible history of progression. As a woman, a daughter, a sister, a friend, and a momma to two beautifully strong, fierce girls - this giant step forward in gender equality is huge. I can look them in the face and say without a doubt, "You can truly be whatever you choose to be."

And that is incredible.

Regardless of who you choose to vote for at the polls, let yourself sit in this moment. Please see it for the gift it is to this country. We are moving forward. We are moving beyond. We are moving to a bright future. Together.

It takes all of us. Hand in hand. Seeking to learn and grow from our differences. Respecting our differences. And truly loving each other in spite of our differences.

Because although we have come so far, we still have a long way to go. But we can get there. We will get there and when we do, our children will thank us.

**This post in no way is meant to cause negative remarks or comments. This is merely my way of saying that I am excited that history was made by having a woman as a presidential candidate. If you are mean, I will love you anyway. Because Jesus told me to.**


  1. Beautiful, well written post. I've really enjoyed the democratic conference speeches this week

    1. Me too! This election, more than ever, it has been so important to stay informed!

  2. You crack me up....but thanks for pointing this out. As a woman in the workforce I rarely feel hindered..except at this time of year when I see what everyone makes and it's obvious there is still some disparity

  3. There is a beautiful video, narrated by Meryl Streep, that didn't make the convention. You will UGLY cry in that one. It recounts the story of Hillary's mother and it had information I never knew. It is also a beautiful telling of the rise of women in this country. You will want to watch it for your girls. I was unable to link it here for some reason, but you should be able to google it

    Related...I am struggling with a lot of things this political season, but mostly TROLLS! Whether or not you think Hillary Clinton is a viable candidate for the presidency is no one's business but our own! Isn't it so sad that you cannot post without a disclaimer to ward off negative thoughts and opinions. It frustrates me no end. I have watched some of the ugliest exchanges on FB between educated people who were once friends! People who have said just awful things the name calling and childish behavior, what message are we sending our children?

    "Careful the things you say
    Children will listen
    Careful the things you do
    Children will see and learn
    Children may not obey, but children will listen
    Children will look to you for which way to turn"

    1. The TROLLS! My word, the TROLLS. It's awful! OF COURSE rightwing.com has some AWFUL story on HRC... just like Ilovetheleft.org is gonna have dirt on Donald. It's infuriating. I can't even engage in conversation because I don't want an argument to start. My thing is this... VOTE. Such an important thing to do and sacred right we have!

  4. Agreed. and watch that video if you can find it. I did not know that HRC mother Dorothy was born on the exact day women got the vote. How freaky cool is THAT???
