And, how are you today? First, the sunrise this morning was unreal. I love both sunsets and sunrises equally and today was purely magical – as is everyone I have been blessed to witness.
This particular sunrise was in Boca as I was picking up two passengers to take to the tri-rail. From there, I picked up a gentleman who had flew in from Brazil this morning. He was on his way to see his wife who is here on a student Visa. He comes back and forth staying here for a couple of weeks at a time. An engineer, he had a company that was very successful. He sold that to a foreign investor for a nice profit and put those profits into real estate, but the economy in Brazil has tanked so over half of his buildings are vacant.
Between the cost of living between two countries, college costs and expenses for his wife, and his son-in-law who is also in college, he averages over $200,000 in those expenditures alone. Having that in savings, he can do it, but it has been a struggle not having a return in investment to compensate.
They are on their third year ($600,00), and she has applied to Lynn University for her Master’s Degree. They will find out soon. His pressing need is to change his status in the US, because right now even though his business is in Brazil and not in the US, he is having to pay taxes.
But, he fully supports his wife’s education along with his son-in-law. He continues going back and forth. He continues to make the best of it.
Is that not what marriage is about?
Supporting one another through it all and seeing the bigger picture of one another’s dreams.
Is that not what relationships are about?
Giving and receiving, mutually respecting, honoring one another (and the collective conscious of the whole) and co-creating – whether on a personal and/or a professional level.
Is that not what life is about?
We are all in this together.
And, on that note….
How can I support you today?
How can you support me?
How can we support one another?
….as one big happy family cohabitating on this
most beautiful plane of existence we collectively
call Earth as we mutually benefit from one another’s
