My daughter left for school today to finish up her senior year. She has been home for over a year. Last year in January we watched her get on a plane for China. One month in Beijing was all she got. COVID started and after a frantic week of so trying to get her out of China, she was home.

It’s been wonderful to have her home. So if there was one gift from the pandemic that was unexpected, it’s extra time with her.

My wife and I will miss her, but are ready to see what life has in store … for her and for us.

We love her so much.
