Aww, man....

Obama's grandmother dies of cancer in Hawaii - the day before the election. He took time out to go see her in October - telling me where his priorities really lie. People had called him silly for doing it, but he put family first, before politics. I had actually hoped she would live to see him at least complete the run.

His going to see his grandmother reminded me of my last trip to see mine, for her 90th birthday. I knew it was going to be the last time I could see her while she was still compos mentis. I didn't have a doctor to tell me, I just knew. She died a few months later. With my other grandma, I missed a chance to see her, and a week later she was killed in a car wreck - I hadn't listened to my inner voice.

So, for those of you haven't voted early or absentee yet - please remember to vote. Then, you can have no regrets, no "shoulda, coulda, woulda".
