One morning this week, my husband walked in the front door after running errands and presented me with a small plaque that read “Beware of the Wife.”
Now….for those that do not know me, I can be pretty vocal about politics and have been pretty vocal about the recent goings on in our East Ridge city government. He asked me where he should hang it…now being the southern lady that I am, I just smiled at his joke (while wondering where I put that box of starch so I could starch his underwear).
I have to admit that the plaque got me to thinking about our role as citizens in watching out for one another, and speaking out and paying attention to what is going on in our local government as well as national. We somehow let the eminent domain sneak up on us and were blindsided.
So …as of today I plan on watching like a hawk and urge my fellow citizens to take up the same cause. Communities are made stronger by people who care and force our leaders to “Beware of the Wife.”
Now…where did I put that starch?
