WOW--today my children--my colorful family--watched the first African American president be sworn in. No matter what your political views, isn't it amazing to watch our colorful country stand together at our nation's capital and see history being made? Rauan came home today and told me how he got to watch the inauguration and see Barack Obama become our president. Our children got to see that anyone--ANYONE--can become a great leader and inspiration to many. Of course Julia had to tell me about the "lady singer and her big hat". That just cracked me up. Leave it to Julia.
I have to say I was blessed today to be at a work environment that encouraged us--actually helped us to arrange our schedules--so we could watch the inauguration if we so chose to do so. And I chose to do so amongst my new HospiceInc. coworkers--young, old, colorful, male, female, from the highest level of employment to the unpaid volunteers. All together. That, in and of itself, is an inspiration.
And just a shout out to my MIL--they loved my stethoscope and the story behind the initials!
