  10. So instead of people being angry that companies get huge tax breaks and tell us people aren’t buying cars but SUVs and GM makes the new Blazer SUV in Mexico, people just say, no big deal.

  23. That happens. People travel hours away for work. People work for weeks and months away from family. Remember our military, truckers, politicians and many others that are gone long periods of times.

  25. Choosing to transfer is stressful, but you’ll be fine. Keep family first in your thoughts, even if that means needing to separate for a period. For those who need to move away from family, it is important to stay in daily contact, perhaps using Facetime or other video conferencing app. Think of it as another of life’s unexpected adventures. God bless you all.
