Oh happy day!

This morning found me on my couch, eyes glued to the television, my boys and a box of tissue by my side. (After the election results back In November and Obama's speech, I now know tissue is necessary.)

I'm so happy with the new leader of our country. It's so refreshing to feel like we're heading in the right direction and to know our reputation in the world is soon to be repaired. Obama's heartfelt speech and calm demeanor made my day. If he leads this country as well as he gives speeches we will have nothing to worry about! I was moved by the massive sea of people flooding the grounds in Washington D.C. all waving their flags in celebration. Seeing the hope in every one's eyes was enlightening. I loved seeing the faces of his little girls, all smiles just enjoying the day. It all was so moving to watch... It was a three tissue morning. I won't forget it.

Four years ago I knew I'd be happy when this day finally arrived. (It felt like a lifetime!) I just didn't know I'd be so thoroughly happy with the individual chosen to take the helm. It's really the first time I've ever been inspired by a President. It feels good! I hope and pray he can safely lead our country to better days. We are better off today than we were yesterday so that's a step in the right direction!!

I couldn't agree more! I have yet to watch all the coverage but it's been recording all morning and I'm so excited! His level head and presence is exactly what we need right now. I just pray that he will be given the opportunity to lead us as intended.

He's amazing!
