43. Let me add my story to yours
because I had a similar day of door knocking yesterday and I also had that one bright moment.

I was about mid-way through my list and we (went with my 13 year old granddaughter, teaching her young) were about to leave some lit at a house when a man came around the corner with hedge trimmers in hand.

After I introduced myself and Tori and why we were knocking on his door his face lit up. "I've been a Republican," he started and I winced, "until four years ago." (sigh of relief from me) "I'm a Christian," he continued, "and I'm against abortion but the Republicans will never do anything about that. They only bring it up at election time. I'm going to vote for the people that will at least do something about all the other problems we have and my wife and I are both voting Obama."

That gentleman and I had a nice conversation after that and he may even volunteer (in spite of health issues). HE kept apologizing for taking up my time as if he was the knocking on my door.

That one door knock made my day!
