Great Expectations.


I’m hopeful. I really am. I didn’t vote for the guy. But then again, I wasn’t all that excited about the guy that I did vote for.

And yet, I’m still hopeful. I’m hopeful that this guy gets it right. I’m hopeful that this guy is as smart as I think he is. I’m hopeful that he’s gathering the right people around him. And I’m hopeful that when things get really bad…he listens to those people. I’m hopeful that he makes the right decisions. I’m hopeful that he’ll govern much more moderately than he campaigned. I’m hopeful that he knows in his heart that government isn’t the answer for everything. I’m hopeful that he truly understands that there are times when diplomacy is not enough. And when those times come, I’m prayerful that he ‘ll only send our troops into harm’s way when it’s truly needed. I’m hopeful that the people who are so excited today realize he won’t and can’t fix everything. I’m hopeful that when the party dies down…they don’t turn on him when things are still really bad six months from now. I’m hopeful that our country becomes a stronger nation in the next four years. I’m hopeful that maybe he’ll do such a good job…….that I will vote for him in four years.


Change is a good thing, right?
