And I cried...

I'm REALLY over talking about Prop 8 for a while but I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who donated and prayed and called and helped us win. It is so humbling.

I took the day off on election day to help run around and call and etc. That night I went home and Kris was out of town so I literally just sat in front of my computer all night as the numbers slowly started pouring in from each county. I was so anxious, literally pushing the "refresh" button on my computer every few minutes for HOURS to see where we stood.

Finally, at about 3AM when 80% of the votes were in and we were still ahead, my heart stopped pounding as hard, and I just leaned back and cried. It was an intense yet peaceful moment. A moral victory for California and a moment in history for me.

you're not alone. i cried too. i still cry when i see the protesters on the news. isn't it strange that we live in a world that doing what is right is now perceived as wrong? we will stay strong together.

p.s. see you on tuesday!

Congrats on all the hard work you did! We are still feeling the effects even here in UT-the Lord knows which side is right and will support it!
