And On the Night of the Health Reform Vote...

Now that the House of Representative has passed the Senate health reform bill and their reconciliation package, this is what I'm telling myself:

The sun will still come up tomorrow.

My wife, who loves me, will still be beside me tomorrow morning when I wake up.

The dog will still want to play ball and go walking more times in one day than I have time for.

The downstairs neighbors will still wake me up 37 minutes before my alarm goes off, like they always do.

Life is still a gift, and I am, for some reason, blessed beyond all reason or deserving.

And the real fight is just beginning.
