First Thank You! WHNHH
I didn't, at first, realize who it was from...I knit hats for three senators, but I flipped the envelope over to see that it was from Senator Enzi of Wyoming. At first, I dropped it down on the table to read when I got back home...then on second thought, grabbed it back up. It was rush hour, and I knew there'd be at least ONE stop light I'd have to wait for on my errand...
Indeed, I didn't have to wait long. I tore open the envelope and read quickly. I think I love this line the best:
...I believe in the importance of civil political discourse, now more than ever...gestures like yours...serve as an example for all of us here in Washington.
So true. And I know I, for one, intend to hold their feet to the fire, and make sure they do indeed work towards this civil discourse in their efforts to solve the serious political issues of this day.
I pretty much floated the rest of the evening. I've also packaged up the last three hats to mail out tomorrow.
Hmm...I've only got one thing to say: How come I heard from the good Senator from Wyoming before I heard from the three honorable men (two senators and a representative) from my own home state? All 4 hats were mailed at the same time, and Senator Enzi's had a lot farther to travel!
