How she got to Marco: We are here now having a meeting with our warehouses and suppliers. But I have been to Marco before, many times. It’s very nice here, and we decided to come back again.

Lessons learned: Probably one of the best things I have told my daughters, and they repeat this back to me when I forget, is that nothing is forever. Most things are just temporary, and you can get through difficult things if you remember that.
