I got up and out of the rig early this morning so I could get to Curves and back home again as soon as possible. I wanted to watch the inauguration events! And that's what I did - all day. :)
As I have posted previously, President Obama was not my choice for the job. However, he was elected and I will support him as my president. And I have to admit I was moved by the ceremonies today. It is truly a phenomenal sight to see leadership change hands with respect and integrity. And we saw that today.
I will admit to a few tears as I watched President and Mrs. Bush leave in the helicopter with President and Mrs. Obama watching from the stairs. I can't imagine what both couples were feeling or thinking. Were the Bushes relieved, sad, ready? Were the Obamas anxious, a little fearful and excited? I only pray that both couples will be pleased with the direction their lives have taken.
What a country we live in! Until the next time . . .
