Where were you?

Today seems to be one of those moments in time when people will ask:

"Where were you when Obama became President?"

Well, I was home with my two wonderful girls watching as much as I could while having one of the fussiest days yet with Eden and juggling Claire's extra neediness! I was nursing during his historical speech - how's that for a memory?!

Obama seems to have really positively charged up a lot of people with such a monumental occasion as being our first African American president. We shouldn't forget that along with this, we also had our first women up for Pres and VP - times have certainly changed. Along with so many, I am so glad my girls will grow up seeing different kinds of people hold such prestigious positions. I pray that this reinforces that they can do whatever they want and be whoever they want to be. The sky's the limit...

I haven't posted anything political and that has been completely on purpose. I'm not much into politics. I know it's a touchy subject with some but I wish it didn't have to be. Politically, I wish we could all just agree to disagree on certain things and simply have a discussion. No matter if you are terrified that this change has occurred or you are ecstatic, there is no denying that we have made a huge step in our history. I pray that God's hand is in everything that Obama does. We all know that humans disappoint so even though so many are expecting such great things and a great turnaround, we must always remember to put our complete faith in God and not man. I'm excited for what this time might bring and look forward to how God will work through this man we now call President.
