I foolishly thought that once the presidential election was over, the US as we know it would settle down and we'd all get back to life as usual. Silly me! I made a massive miscalculation. I gave no regard to the inauguration and the onslaught of Obama-Mania that would ensue. The news has been filled with inaugural information, including my beloved Fox News Channel. Ordinarily I would take an opportunity such as this, to educate my children on the inauguration, allow them to see segments of it, and answer any questions they might have. That's probably not going to happen. I seem to be having a difficult time getting into the spirit, and I think you know why. For the sake of clarity though, let me be metaphorical for a moment. I typically don't use, or even like sports metaphors, but I'm desperate and I have a few sports fans who read my blog, so I know they'll relate. Let's say you're a Dallas Cowboys fan, and they're playing against the Washington Redskins, who you
hate dislike very much. And let's just say that the Redskins win the game by a landslide. How easy, nay fun, is it going to be to explain football and the beauty that is Dallas, to your future little quarterbacks at home, knowing how upset you are over the results of the game? Answer, not very easy/fun at all.....in fact, hard!
I know, I need to just 'get over it', 'move on', 'let it go', 'shake it off'.......or pray fervently that God will change my heart and attitude and allow me to be respectful even if I don't feel much like it.
