Welcome, President Obama. How we've been waiting for you.
I remember the first time I saw today's date on a bumper sticker. It was well over two years ago, before our current president had even entered the race. How we have anticipated this day! Yet could we have imagined just how inspiring it would be?
During the fall, a friend and I would meet with our kids at the park and often discuss the election. She terrified me with her constant admonition that our country would "get the president that we deserve."
Now I just hope we can prove her to be right.
