Mourning Joy

Good Mourning Widows! Joy to you and me.

Today we recognize famous widow, Nellie T. Ross as member of the club nobody wants to join.

Nellie's husband was Governor of Wyoming. Following his death, Nellie swept the special election held in 1924 and became the first woman in the history of the United States to be elected to that office. She was not re-elected in 1927.

So what!

Among Nellie's many subsequent successes, she was appointed Vice Chairman of the Democratic National Committee. Nellie lived to the ripe old age of 101!

Way to go, Nellie!

"I think Nellie Ross was an impact on society because she gave women a greater feeling of equality. She proved that woman can take on big responsibilities." Alex B.

I agree.

What responsibilities can we take on today? Let's write about them. Responsibly, of course!

Go ahead. What are you waiting for? Do it.

Mourning Joy:

Q: What do you call a muddy sparrow?

A: A dirty birdy.

Have a joyful day! And remember, we're not alone.
