My wife and I listened to Ann Romney’s speech last evening, and we both loved it. As we listened, I reflected my enthusiasm in several posts on Twitter that quoted her remarks:
I wrote yesterday of Mitt’s great sense of humor that people such as Molly Ball of The National Journal are starting to recognize and appreciate. I also just saw where Ann gave a fun testimonial yesterday on the “CBS This Morning” of who Mitt really is, stating “This is the boy that I knew. I still look at him as the boy I met in high school, when he was playing all the jokes and really just being crazy, pretty crazy.” Pointing at Mitt, she continued, “There’s a wild and crazy man inside there.”
I first wrote about the love that Mitt and Ann have for each other in a previous post entitled, “Mitt and Ann: A Beautiful Love Story.” The purpose of that piece was basically to comment on a silly story that ran in the National Enquirer just in time for Valentine’s Day.
Very much in contrast with the doubt that the Enquirer tried to raise in the reader’s mind, Mitt and Ann Romney have been devoted to each other now, pretty much since their first date 47 years ago. One can say that finding such success in a relationship depends on the same three elements that business people use to explain how to succeed in their world: Focus, focus, and focus.
Focus has been Mitt’s story for pretty much his entire life, in every thing he has done in business and as we see, in affairs of the heart. It was true during the time we were in France, and from all indications, it has been true in all that he has done since.
