As I sat in my make shift home office with the window slightly cracked, I heard the sound of beeping horns. Is that a parade? Maybe it's over! I ran into living room and told my mother that I had heard cars and horns! We looked out the picture window - nothing but the rain. I laughed and my eyes filled with tears. I told her I had thought that maybe it was a parade… I walked back to my home office. I allowed myself one sob - time to get back to work.
