To say that I was done in by the time I got back up to my office after debriefing would be an understatement. I was way past done in. Done in was in the rearview mirror.
Before shutting down my office computer for the night, I checked email. Court email was routine. But in my personal email was a gift, pure and simple:
Just writing you to say we love you. We are as busy as ever as working lots and hanging out with Ramona and having a good time.
My son Benjamin could not have timed his email any better if he tried. It was just what I needed, a little shot of love that was totally unexpected, a little pick-me-up at the end of a long, hard day, a little moment shot through with gold.
