Thanks, as always, for your honest narrative, Jonathan. I can relate to a childhood of financial volatility. My father didn’t believe in paying for utilities and my mom would send us kids out to beg the electrician not to turn off the power. And her shame when the credit card was declined and we had to slink down the escalator leaving our new school clothes behind. But there was always money for meals out, box seats for sporting events and lavish vacations. It's crazy-making for a kid. Congrats on piercing through the fog.
