Missing the inauguration

Some of you who know that I received my ticket to the inauguration may have strong feelings about why I should have gone to this wonderful historic event. As it turns out, the person I would have gone with (if I were going) was able to go, leaving today and returning Wednesday.

Watching the events on TV last night, I questioned whether I had made the right decision. (I hate crowds.) This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I am well aware of that. I came to the conclusion that I should not second guess myself. Everything happens for a reason. I believe that my time will come to be in Washington, DC. Maybe even to meet President Obama face to face.

Anyway, I bless those fortunate enough to go. This is a wonderful year. It is a fabulous time to be an American.
