The Karmic Obama Circle is Complete

Since February, Eric and I have housed various wonderful Obama staffers.  Yesterday, the karmic circle was completed when a fellow Obama canvasser allowed Talia to nap at her house and have her wonderful 16 year old daughter babysit her while we went back out for another 4 hours of canvassing.

Lenita Phillips and her daughter, McKenna, are to thank for one of Talia’s top 10 naps of all time (over 3 hours and extremely well-rested).  Plus – they have a little bunny rabbit, Murphy, who quickly stole Talia’s heart.

Here are pictures of Talia in Lenita’s older daughter’s bed (she’s away at college) with her and her sister’s now-discarded dolls and stuffies.  Talia was truly in heaven!  She even got to watch Spongebob when she woke up and, when I got there, totally tattled on her brother, Sidney, by sharing with me that he had watched this program one time.

  1. Suzi,
    Thanks for including McKenna and me in your blog! I must say that I truly enjoyed our time together working for a great cause. I hope that our efforts prevail on Tuesday, especially here in Florida, and I will always remember the time I spent with you, and Claudia. I really appreciate the fact that there are other truly dedicated supporters who travel great distances working hard to help elect the next president, whom I feel will change the future of our country for the better.

    I am also glad that I had a chance to meet Talia. What a beautiful child, inside and out! You should be very proud of her great spirit. I’m sure she exhibits the best of her parents. I don’t know many children her age who travel with such grace, and who “goes with the flow” of campaigning like I witnessed. Talia, “you’re the best!” I apologize to you for having McKenna with me on Sunday canvassing and missed the opportunity to see you both one last time.

    I wish you and your family well, and I will always remember my Obama friends from the other side of the country.
