I’m sitting here drinking my coffee and taking in this beautiful day. Recently, I spent time with my niece, and while we were in my car the song by Pink Dear Mr. President came on my iPod.

As I listened to the words I began to cry. My niece never heard it before, but it got her talking about McCain and Obama. There is an internet test you can take where you put in your beliefs and it matches you to the candidate. She told me who she matched up with and what she agrees and disagrees with about the candidates. Listening to her talk about the election made me think about my younger years, and when it came to politics I knew nothing nor did I care. I realize how important this presidency means to all of us and how it has impacted the young and old. This had us discussing many things which enlightened me to the fact that even though our generations are different we still want the same things - guidance and security.

If I learn anything about children, it’s not to underestimate them and communication is very important. I mean really listening to what they say and how they feel about things. As adults, I think we tend to let our troubles muffle the words and feelings of others and we lose out on learning from these small yet important experiences. I’m so blessed to have my family, my niece and nephews, and sometimes when life gets crazy, I stop to realize what wonderful gifts God gave me.

Have a blessed day!
