Beautiful words and pictures about the most beautiful city I’ve ever had the honor to go to.
Is it any wonder that I feel conflicted.
Moving from one home to another is emotionally heavy.
Are homes overpriced? In some places the answer is yes.
Taxes are too much and make a house undesirable. It’s not worth it to me.
How does anyone survive let alone thrive living in the east coast with a modest salary? Not appetizing.
It was a good experience in seeing what the market goes for in some areas.
The houses I’ve seen on the west coast was a different story.
With my modest salary I can live like a princess. I don’t need to be a queen.
But I can thrive.
That’s exciting to me.
Well…ever day is a new lesson.
Never stop learning!!!!
But it was soo cute.
Pity that money can help and hurt.
In 1999, NBC premiered Aaron Sorkin’s new series The West Wing, a television show that follows the life of fictional President Josiah Bartlet and his staff. It was two years before 9/11, and television audiences were enamored by Sorkin’s portrayal of a “utopian” White House. Premiering shortly after the Clinton impeachment, The West Wing debuted during a partisan political climate that split the American electorate. Sorkin’s goal was to humanize the executive branch and combat the cynical beliefs viewers had of politics. He created relatable characters and a President without moral ambiguity, giving audiences an alternative view of public service than what was they saw on the daily news. This optimistic approach definitely became more apparent as the Clinton presidency came to a close and the presidency of George W. Bush began.
Most of The West Wing’s run coincided with the Bush presidency. The turmoil of the Bush years…

What does a “godly” person look like? Is there a right way to love God? Is there a correct path to follow Jesus?
I just returned from my fourth “Christian” conference of the year.
January I was in Chicago for the Gay Christian Network Annual Conference, where some 700 people gathered to celebrate, learn, and share community. Rob and I were among 200 parents, the rest were LGBTQ people, mostly in their 20s and 30s, gathered in the name of Christ. The worship, the camaraderie, the joy of the Lord, filled the conference hall. If you had been there, you would have basked in it! No denomination, no distinction, no made to feel second-class. They’re just brothers and sisters in Christ, full of gratitude for Christ in us, the hope of glory.
God is God.
In June I returned to Chicago for a “By Parents, For Parents” conference. Parents of LGBTQ…

It’s just a refreshing thing to finally go to work and feel no pain.
I’ve worked in the financial industry for over twenty years and been through so many ups and downs.
Management changes in the corporate world is outrageous. I couldn’t believe it. I’m not sure what’s more outrageous, merging of offices or separating.
The corporate world is a dog eat dog world and I’ve had my share of all of it.
Management changes hit me the hardest. I went from management to treated like a piranhas. Three awful years of having to fake it with people who behave like self absorbed children. Being treated inhumanly for being a good person is hard to swallow.
But…Patience and prayer paid off.
After expressing myself I finally had an opportunity to get a transfer to a sister branch.
I had a fantastic first day in my new office. The manager is supreme and I hear and see how she treats everyone so beautiful.
So never give up on dreams.
Patience can pay off.
