if there's two things you can't talk about...

...they're politics and religion. Well, I always talk about religion, so I've already blown that one. Today, I'm going to go ahead and talk about politics too. This is a massive glimpse of grace for me personally, so there's just one for today:

-Seeing Barack Obama become the first African American president (which is something we can all be proud of) and feeling hopeful, determined and inspired at the direction our country is headed and the person who will serve as our leader. I genuinely believe he's going to do great things for our country. Put in Northern Irish terms...I'm chuffed! Oh, so chuffed.

Hi Whitney - I am chuffed, too! Well, quietly chuffed - the lone Democrat in a sea of Republicans around my workplace. :)

Yeah, I'm kind of doomed in that "politics and religion" realm, too. But I share your excited over Obama's victory.

(Just wish that I wasn't scared that aspects of my family wouldn't question my faith as a result.)
