This morning I must fess up. I have writer's block. I have spent the last hour flipping through my twitter feed, reading the manuscripts from yesterday's congressional hearings on small business, and looking for an insightful Amisight to share with all of you this morning. And nothing is sticking today. And perhaps the only reason for my being stuck this morning is my brain and emotions are still settling down from last night.
Around 9:30 last night, when my wife and I were laying in bed, I suddenly heard our garage opening and the dogs startled. Perplexed, I said, "what the hell is that" and just as I was about halfway out of bed to go look, I heard with a shriek, "Hi guys, I am home !!" Our daughter Charlotte decided to surprise us and come home for the weekend from her first year at College.
Wy wife shrieked and cried and jumped up and down. I was in shock. Those who know me well know that I love to be to the jokester, but no one "gets me"; I always "get them." I don't think I have ever been so surprised in my life. And most importantly, I am thrilled to report that Charlotte is adjusting beautifully to College, despite all the craziness and challenges of COVID-19.
I know what we will be doing this weekend. Lots of hugging and enjoying Charlotte !! I suspect that Charlotte and her mom will squeeze in some “necessary” shopping as well. Whatever it is, take some time and find a way to bring someone you love some joy. We all need it during these crazy and uncertain times.
