President Barak Obama

What a blessing it is to be an American where peaceful transfer of power occurs every 4-8 years. Today was amazing...the fanfare, the music, the crowd, the warmth between the Bush family and the Obamas. Although I have been really sick (a terrible migraine over the weekend that culminated into a killer stomach virus over the last 2 days), one small blessing of being home bound today was watching this incredible moment in our nation's history.

May God bless the Bush family as they transition and breathe a sigh of relief. May God bless and protect the Obamas as they move into their new home and begin such a surreal life. Bless him and give him wisdom to lead this nation!

Sorry you are sick! We are in the same boat my friend, I have been sick so I didn't go to work today and was so happy to be able to watch it all live on TV.

It was a powerful and exciting event to witness!

Feel better :)

Brandon, one of the more memorable moments for me today and one that made me proud was watching the Obamas and the Bushes standing side-by-side waiting for the helicopter to take the Bush family to Langley AFB. Bush looked relieved and even appeared to make Mrs. Obama chuckle with laughter. It was cute moment. Then watching President Bush say to Michelle as they boarded the helicopter (you could read his lips), "I'll be praying for you" was great. Great day to be an American.

You need to get well, brother. I don't want any feverish, flu-ridden hugs this weekend.

Did you know that the Bush family came to Midland that afternoon? There was a huge rally in Midland downtown for them. They said about 30,000 came.
