When I saw this photo of President Obama and President-elect Trump shaking hands [click the link, it’s not public domain], this was my reaction:
They look like men shaking hands at a funeral.  And I mean that in a good way.
It is possible to undertake an unpleasant task with both seriousness and good grace.
Here’s another photo that is public domain, from the same meeting.  If President Obama can be cheerful, surely we can put off our gloom?
A more cheerful moment – as one also sees at funerals

What will you be doing on your death bed? In my February 2014 Death Bed Test Run, my answer amused me: I’d be writing about the Catholic faith. It’s what I do.
In addition to my blogging habit . . . I’m the author of Classroom Management for Catechists. You can find me lurking around the Catholic Writers Guild. I homeschool my four kids. I have an MBA (accounting / finance), and my undergrad degree was in International Studies with a splash of economics thrown in. Studied for a year of that at the Institut d’Etudes Politique in Paris, so oui, j’aime all that French stuff. My latest educational frenzy? I’m training to be a presenter for Family Honor.
I have an agreement with God that He gets to lay me flat whenever He wants, and I get to whap on the floor when He does it.
