Who is happy with President Trump? Anyone?
My wife and I went out earlier this week to protest with a group of people. They were protesting not only the immigration ban but also the President. My wife can not stand Trump. I’m not a fan of his either but I do see some value in a few of the things he is doing. I completely disagree on the way he goes about it. There is no need for him to treat everyone as less than himself. He is not a dictator. He is acting just like it. It’s disappointing.
I pray we all survive this Presidency.
My wife and I attended a black tie gala and danced the night away. It was a benefit for Water for Africa and Doctors without borders. We donated $2500 to each cause. Happy to support them both. Water for Africa helps to bring water pipelines and water pumps to the smaller rural areas. Mostly towns or villages. The pipelines are often ripped apart by militia that want to disrupt the progress for the towns and village people. It was a very educational presentation.
Doctors without borders is a cause my family foundation has been supporting for over a decade. They need more help than ever. The diseases they can quickly diagnosis and cure are as simple as 2 or 3 shots to immunize an entire group of people. They also help to get patients that need surgery. It’s a great organization and I hope you all support both charities.
My wife looked amazing. She was in a long dress and had on a necklace and a some great looking earrings. She took my breath away as soon as she came out of the bedroom. We had our photos taken with the boys before we left. We enjoyed some funny stories the driver was telling about his day. Great guy. He told us to have fun. We ate a very nice dinner as they presented the information. Then people started dancing and I asked her to dance. She said do you remember the steps to our first dance at the wedding? I said of course and flubbed my way through the first few steps. Then my brain kicked in and we got more in sync. We danced a few songs sat and rested then danced some more. Afterwards we went out for a quick dessert. She called it an almost perfect night. I said what could have made it better. She said if the boys were with us. She says things like that and I fall in love with her all over again. She missed my little guys. She is slowly spending more and more time with me doing the things they need each morning and night. Sarah gets the fun of playing with them all day. It’s a lot of work and now that they are both walking around a little she said it’s getting harder. I said when they start zooming around we will get in one of the other nannies to help if she needed it. Whatever we can do to help her out, we will do.
The gala was a huge success. I’m so proud to have been invited to such a great event. I’m happy to help in charities like both of these. I can’t wait to find out in a few months which towns we helped or how many patients we helped. I’m very excited to know that a little money will go a very long way overseas.
God helps others to help others.
Company logo is getting a redesign. Lindsay has put in a few ideas to make the company more global. She said having plan text as the current logo is depressing Lol I told her then come up with something better. But not offensive. She submitted 6 logo ideas and we are working hard to see what everyone thinks. She said it’s more a decision for her and I and getting input would divide the vote up too thin. I don’t know. I like gathering input before something like this is decided. Makes me feel like we did all we could to make the best choice.
I added a logo design of my own and she vetoed that right away. She’s not into arrows. Mine had a big arrow on it. She said if you point that way it’s too one-sided. Huh? Oh okay. So now we are working on that. She wants the logo to be up and running by January 1st of 2018.
The logo design has been a long time coming. I’m happy with our business websites. They are all working well, able to communicate with our customers and vendors. I like that they function. They look good. Now it’s picking out the main logo. It can’t be this hard.
This transition period is hard for me. I’m used to deciding everything. Handing off responsiblity and delegating more and more is not my strong point. I hope to get better at it. My wife is very encouraging and telling me this is what I wanted to do. So let them take over so I can move on and begin doing all that I dream about. She’s right. I do want to step away. Now is the time with everything running so smoothly. The money seems to be coming in on time and we are able to pay everyone. That’s all I ever cared about. I remember sticking my paychecks back into the business the first month to help out. Then it got up and running and things were fine. At this point I am excited about waking up with my boys and not having to leave them. Next year will be a fresh start and I can’t wait. For now though, I want to continue to work hard and add more great business deals to my legacy.
I just pray Lindsay doesn’t follow a Trump takeover and completely undo everything I’ve worked very hard to build. I guess we shall see.
