First of all, a new girlfriend from Embodydance has moved in with me and although our relationship remains on a platonic basis, I am totally in love with her like a sister and best friend and I could not be happier. While I won’t go into the details how this all came about, which is a miracle in itself, as soon as she can get her finances in order she will be fulfilling one of the two intentions I set for myself last January. While she won’t be paying rent for a while, how ever long it takes is of far less concern to me to having her company and her support towards some of the other goals I wish to fulfill before next February and for the future and the best part is that I can return the favors in kind, and then some!
The second miracle has to do with an annuity I was to receive from a former employer of my beloved wife in the form of monthly annuity payments of $105 starting in November. When I first found out about it, I had said to myself that it would be great if I could take a lump sum payment instead but that was not an option when I first accepted it. As I was cleaning my house preparing for my new dear sister moving in, I received a postcard from the company and learned that, for a limited time only, I could take that lump sum payment for which I had wished instead of spreading it out over the next 10.5 yearswhich has now put me over the top with I will need to complete my transition next February and that any money I now can earn from selling off unneeded personal property and bringing my house into manageable condition, yet another goal which will be fulfilled, those proceeds can go toward reducing my liabilities to creditors and help fulfill other goals which I had put off until after my surgery. I can take my time selling off my possessions for the best prices instead of having to take less in order to pay for what is now paid for by virtue of yet another gift left to me by my dearly beloved and departed angel.
I almost forgot to mention that, with a letter from my doctor in hand testifying to my transition in progress, I applied for my passport which I shall be receiving within the next few weeks.
