So I am really proud of myself. I made my first Thanksgiving meal here in my home. I cooked a turkey. Made stuffing, corn pudding, green bean casserole, jello, rolls, sweet potatoes, pumpkin pie. My mother in law made the mashed potatoes, and it turned out great! We stuffed ourselves and have plenty of leftovers, as it should be! Yeah for me, all of this being about 9 months pregnant. I think I deserve an award. I also think I deserve a day off. :) Luckily I will at least get the latter. I am happy to have some time to spend with family, and thankful for those around me. God is good, and so is life!

I can't help but keep thinking about the fact that we have an African-American president for the very first time. I am so excited! I am thrilled with the choice for president. I did vote for Obama, and though I knew he was going to be elected, I couldn't have fathomed the real sense of accomplishment until it happened. I know that some people are not happy about the results of the election, as they disagree so much with certain issues, or big government or whatever. But stop and think for a moment. My child will never have to know what it was like to live in a country that had not yet moved to the point of being able to elect an African-American as president. It will always be a part of her sense of patriotism. This moment has opened up new opportunities for so many people. Some day Maggie could be president if she really wanted to! I truly think that Obama is going to be a great leader, and with support from those around him, both republican and democrat, our country has a real chance for positive change. Now is the time.
