Farewell Address

I’m just getting the opportunity to watch President Obama’s farewell address. He speaks with integrity, intelligence, respect for his audience, reserved confidence, and just the right amount of humor. His timing and word choice show thoughtfulness and understanding I greatly admire.

And when he mentioned his wife and everyone stood and clapped for her…đź’•  He looked at Michelle– He looked at her like he was lucky to be her husband. It was marvelous to see the man who holds the highest office in our county talk to and about his wife in such a loving, respectful way. An incredible example for us all.

Today’s joy is the joy of respect.
