OBAMA!!!!

today my boys and i held hands and watched obama's first speech as our new president.  

it is a bit bittersweet being here in belgium and missing such a momentous, spectacular, wonderful and amazing occasion in american history.  on  the other hand, i get the pleasure of seeing a completely different country celebrate for me..and for all who have suffered at the hands of goerge w.  it's heartwarming to see the entire world celebrating this beautiful day, this new start...the beginning of profound healing of the injuries of war, racism and injustice.

i've shed lots of happy tears today, and although i'm here in europe, i'm a very happy american.

my secret pleasure is storing up all your blogs and then reading them all in a huge blitz.

This made me want Turkey.

I like you. x

It is so soothing to know that intelligence and compassion is returning to the white house. We hear news daily about the forward thinking and planning that the Obama team is making. There is great hope in America and a feeling that our country will again be considered a friend in the world.
