I think I am on election over load. I am drained after being incredibly high. Last night was a night like none other. We watched in anticipation. We held on tight as the votes were coming in. As state after state was announced to be RED or BLUE. We watched the electoral votes add up, and up and UP! It happened much more quickly than we thought it would. We held hands and cried. I screamed and shouted my JOY! I was impressed with McCain's speech of concession. I was in awe of Barack Obama's acceptance speech. He is so eloquent. So calm. The music was subdued. It brought together his somber demeanor perhaps a blending of his grief of the loss of his grandmother and the amazing winning of the presidency. I am so hopeful. I am so grateful. I am so happy that this has happened during my lifetime and the lifetimes of my children and grandchildren. I am overjoyed that my grandchildren will grow up thinking having an African American President is NORMAL.


  1. i'm so happy for your joy...
    yes, it's a big change in many perspectives...

    my daughter always says black people are more beautiful than us white...
    she says she'll go to Africa when she's grown up!
    these children!!!

  2. I have decided to call him President O, I still have a hard time with his name. Your night sounds like mine. We were filled with such joy for the gift of this man, and today I am exhausted too.
    We were dancing and was amazing.
    Now to look forward.
    I am glad you liked my charm.
    Hugs, Mary

  3. It is a historic moment for sure.

  4. Lynn, your joy sounds so much like mine and my family. My son and I were honored to be in attendance at his last rally before the election (after 10 pm eastern time on Monday). I am still flying with elation. Thank you so much for sharing your joy.

  5. You have just reflected my feelings also.


Thanks for leaving your comments as I love hearing from you. Your words of encouragement are why I continue to draw!
