Since I have been having one of those weeks, I might as well vent about the President too. Well not really the President, but those who think that it is horrible that he gets to sit down on the couch and spend father daughter time with them. This is just one of the many comments that someone said, “Must be nice meanwhile while he destroys the life’s of millions of other family’s”. I very much dislike talking politics and who is right and who is wrong. Who is a Democrat, Republican, Independent or whatever else someone may want to come up with for the day. I vote for the person not the party. Hmmm is there a actual party for those like me that read up on all candidates and don’t believe all the garbage posted on Facebook?
OK, back to the reason for my blog post. On his Facebook page there is a picture of him sitting with his daughters. And some of the comments are just plain old horrible. He may be our President and I may not like all he does. Which of course not one president did everything that everyone wanted them to do. But he is a father too. And his daughters should be sitting there with him. What in the world do people expect? He is human, he has a family and yes he is the President. He has his plate more than full. I guess if anyone that thanks they can do better and juggle making the world happy all the time, they should go sign up. That is a job I would never want to have because of all the hateful and mean people out there.
When I looked at the picture of the President with his daughters, I paid more attention to his daughter that is snuggling next to him and the joy on her face. All parents and children should be able to have that same joy. And kudos to him for taking a few moments out of his day to spend with his daughters, wife and dog BO. And Lord forbid he go on vacation like any other person. Now granted if there is a problem that can’t wait, then he should put it off a bit. I’m pretty sure though that his vacations are anything but relaxing because of all the cameras, security and who ever else is around trying to take over the world. If he is like any other workaholic and high profile worker, he is always working even when he isn’t. What we see in the media isn’t always what is really going on. I know that is a shocker to many that the internet may lie or embellish the truth, but it is true.
I like the fact to that the President isn’t afraid to hold his wife’s hand or give her a kiss in public. Shoot, at-least he doesn’t have the whole Monica thing going on. He has no problem showing his love for his family no matter who is watching. And how people can turn a family moment like them having dinner together or dancing into a huge political battle is beyond me. We all are afforded the right to love others. We are commanded in the Bible to Love God and love our neighbors. I actually think our pastor mentioned that this last Sunday. I’m pretty sure he wasn’t thinking about Obama though, lol.
I’m not going to get into the politics of what he did or didn’t do. This blog post is about family and taking time for your family. No matter who you are or aren’t. Cherish your children while they are young. They grow up fast and before you know it you have 5 grandchildren that is approaching teenager years. Egads on the very thought of that.
