I hope this message finds you and your family well and safe. I don’t like to inundate your inbox with frequent emails, but in times of uncertainty like now, I just wanted to check-in and share a minute of reflection with you. One of my colleagues posted the message below on Facebook and I’ve decided to share it with you. Feel free to reach out to simply say “hi” or whatever. My business is to NOT selling shades but instead, it is building relationships. Take care!

“Suddenly”
Suddenly, we slept in one world and woke up in another. Disney has
no more magic and Paris is no longer romantic.
Suddenly, in New York everyone sleeps. And the Great Wall of China
is no longer a fortress.
Suddenly, hugs and kisses become weapons. Holding hands and
walking the parks become outlawed.
Suddenly, not visiting aging parents and grandparents becomes an
“act of love”.
Suddenly, our bombs and machine guns, our tanks and artilleries
begin to gather dust.
Suddenly, we realized that power is with God alone. And that
money has no value when it can’t even buy you toilet paper.
Suddenly, we have been put back in our place by the hands of the
universe.
And we’ve been made aware how vulnerably “human” we truly are,
when faced with a microbe so powerfully inhumane.
