Thoughts on the Independence Day
AS I look outside, it's very bright and seems very hot. I watched a bit of the Wimbledon, Williams vs Hingis-----don't know who won as I am preparing the documents for my wife's Immigrant Visa application.
Normally I would be sitting by the pool or ride bicycle to the beach. But I am content, because this year is another special way to spend this day. My mother who has been living in Oregon for many years decided to move down to L.A. She has finally moved into a retirement home, surrounded by lots of love. She is only a half hour away from us.
My wife will become a permanent resident after she returns from a business trip. It is the privilege I am feeling on this day. Two of the closest people are feeling a joy to live in the States.
I am a naturalized Citizen-------I feel the privilege, not because it is given to me, but I have earned it. It took me a looooooong time to accept the life in the States whether it is good or bad.
I am grateful that I had all the space and the time to work out rounding out the edges. Yes! It is within this freedom that I came to feel comfortable becoming a person.
Also the unlimited opportunities I discover when there is a desire. "When there is a will, there is a way." How appropriate! About 4 months ago I didn't even know how to use computer. I didn't know how the stock market runs--------------
With luck, I came to know the Motley Fool. It took me a while to navigate within Fool's web-site and feel comfortable. " Action cures fear. "How true! I feel good about being a Foolite! It's given me a place to grow and appreciate and enjoy THE ART OF INVESTMENT.
I still remember, one of my Chinese friend told me, "The best thing in life is--- Good food, Good friend, Good conversation!"
Now, I'm gonna grab a Hot Dog and a Beer----------
Have a nice 4th--------Soon the Firework time!!
