I hope that answered your question, and while I don't 'do' politics on Hillbilly Debutante, it was just such a relevent question for this day and time. I couldn't resist.
Tomorrow, I'll answer more of your fun questions that you all had for me!
Hmmm...so much for short and sweet, huh?

Okay, so I've had questions from several of you wanting to know the story behind my tatoo. No story, really.
I was just in one of my moods. You know what I'm talkin' about.
You wake up one morning and you just feel ...um, I don't know....restless, I guess.
No, rebellious is probably a better word.
Anyway, there I was layin' in bed, contemplating my fate of having to get up, don a suit, and spend the whole day showing houses. Did I mention that I spent 7 years as a realtor? Booorrinngg.
So, after waiting for about an hour and a half and being stood up by no-show clients I thought, "Hmm, ya know Kathie old girl, this career is just not for you." Right then and there I did a u-turn, parked my Mercedes in the drive, slapped a For Sale sign on it, slipped out of my suit into a pair of boots and jeans, grabbed the keys to the red Chevy pickup and went for a long drive.
As I am singing along to Gretchen Wilson's "Redneck Woman" blasting from the stereo, I see a tatoo parlor. Suddenly a light bulb comes on!
"I know! I think I'll get a tatoo!"
So, $50 and 15 minutes later THIS is what I have to show for that one rebellious action.

When it happens I will publicly thank those who have stood by me, encouraged, (even discouraged, although I won't name names) and assisted me along the way.
Because regardless of what we accomplish in this world, we never do it on our own.
Life's pathway is strewn with the people we need to help us get where we're going.
Sure, it feels good to have our cheerleaders on the sidelines. But we need the critics to make us stop, think and re-evaluate. Critics force us to look at the bigger picture and ask ourself the tough questions. Perhaps they're right? Is this attainable? Should I adopt a different strategy? Could I be better?
The people that are hell-bent on bringing you down? (Not to be confused with critics).Use them to motivate you. Yep, I said motivate. They are a fact of life. They won't go away. So you have two choices. You can let them gnaw at your confidence. Or you can picture the surprised look on their face when you've accomplished the impossible. (And that's all you get to do. No 'i told you so's'. That's tacky and it serves no purpose.)
Our friends are the ones we go to for the truth. Because regardless of how much it may hurt, they will always be brutally honest with us. Even it makes us cry.
So, in my life, whichever one of the above you recognize in yourself, whether it be Critic, Encourager, Discourager, Friend or Enemy, I thank God for you.
Because with your help and His, I WILL achieve this goal.
