Down but not out

Congratulations to President elect Barak Hussein Obama.

I believe in gracious losing--in defeat that results when you fight the good fight and still come up short. Losses tend to teach us more than victories so I will be paying attention to the things I can gain rather than dwell on what I feel we might have lost. I believe in an America where we walk free to vote and choose. I know that all of life is about living with the choices we make the best we can. I believe in the inherent goodness of people despite all the madness and despair. I have faith in God who watches over all of us, and who is with us most when we feel Him least.

I hope that all the people who supported Obama get the change they were hoping for, that they were promised. He hid a lot of who he is, but he clearly spelled out his plans (change) for America--and no one should be surprised when he puts those plans into action. I hope some day I can see in him all the things his supporters see in him. He can talk a good talk, but actions speak much louder than words. I will be watching.

There is no going back, only moving forward.

Country first.

Life goes on.

Agreed. I do not believe in crying over a loss but rather moving forward. I have my faith in God to move our country forward (yes I guess that's me clinging to my religion again).

My heart was so heavy this morning but I've had my moment and I'm moving on. Time to regroup and come back stronger. Warriors don't give up!

I awoke yesterday with a heavy heart also, but have moved on from the loss and hope that his change does occur. What's most annoying is the ridiculous ruckuses and destruction of property in the celebrations that have taken place. If you care for me to elaborate, just let me know. lol

Not sure why I still have the damnedest time signing in to use my blogger name but haven't had the time to give it much more than a thought.

Hope you ladies are well and know that I am seriously missing the daylights out of you both!
