Getting ready for a new era...

Getting ready for a new era...
I am so happy to have a new President coming into the office next week, I know in my life I have NEVER been more ready for change in that office. I am really excited and hopeful of what he will bring to America, I know he has a lot to deal with.. but I think he can handle it. He wrote a letter to his daughters, and I love it. I love how open he is, candid really.
My favorite part of it was :
" When I was a young man, I thought life was all about me-about how I'd make my way in the world, become successful, and get the things I want. But then the two of you came into my world with all your curiosity and mischief and those smiles that never fail to fill my heart and light up my day. And suddenly, all my big plans for myself didn't seem so important anymore. I soon found that the greatest joy in my life was the joy I saw in yours. And I realized that my own life wouldn't count for much unless I was able to ensure that you had every opportunity for happiness and fulfillment in yours. "
I think because he puts into words how I feel about Darrian, and how most parents feel I am sure. I am taking Tuesday as a holiday, I have Monday off already.. a four day weekend and a weekend of change, I am looking forward to it.
here is the entire letter enjoy!

Michelle: Thank you for posting that wonderful letter. I have tears in my eyes as I read it, because as a mom, you want so deeply for your children and all children to have better lives than you. You pray for it.
I will print this letter and read it to Zayle...Kallias is too distracted by trains :)
Tuesday is our new beginning...the first day of the rest of our lives.
