This morning we told our daughters that Barack Obama had won the election and that he will be the new president in January. DD#1 was visibly upset. She's been watching the news with us occasionally and asking LOTS of questions. For such a tiny little citizen, she's been very concerned with our economy. The first words out of her mouth when she woke up to the news of Obama winning the election last night were, "But.... but... is he going to make us kill deer?" Apparently she doesn't have very much faith in his economic policies and still has visions of the recession and bread lines she has heard rumored on TV. Bill's never been a hunter but she must think Barack will **force** him to start hunting to provide for his family as an alternative to standing in the bread lines.
What an avid imagination our little girl has, but I must concede: I do hope we don't plummet into the recession and end up lacking the most basic necessities. Our consolation to her this morning was that we can pray and God will provide every need that she could ever have. Today she bravely went off to school, trusting in God. For that, I am thankful.
