Another post - twice in one day!!!
Like many people I have been glued to the telly today. This is such an important and historic thing that has happened and I found it all quite emotional, especially the final prayer. How much nicer this world would be if we all lived by those words.
There are quite a few US blogs that I visit, and I have got to 'know' quite a few lovely American people, and one lovely lady, Mary Dawn who visits here regularly, left me a comment on my last post which really struck a chord. She said .......
'i love what you said about my new president! i just realized that when i tell my kids "yes, you CAN be anything you want to be" that i can MEAN IT! i'm so proud and so hopeful'
And I thought, yes, that is sooo true. And how far have we come, cos being an old fart, I remember those images of burning crosses and I remember the evil that was apartheid. But in the great scheme of things, I am not that much of an old fart and it wasn't that long ago really. But maybe we can now all sleep a little easier, even though it's pie in the sky to think that this one man holds all the answers.
But you never know .....
I could not send a card to all my American friends to say congratulations, so I thought I would do one for you all. Except it isnt a card, it's a digi LO, but it is sent with love.
This is LO no 3 and slowly I think I am starting to twig . The papers and elements are from the Freedom kit by the beautiful person that is Summer Driggs. I have even added text to this one - that's a first lol xxx. Still not perfect, but I feel as if I am making progress.
And that is what today has been all about.
Hugs and love xxxx
