I wake up each morning and give thanks for the bed I slept in, my home, my family, my friends, and a new day. This is the time of year when being thankful is brought to everyone’s attention. Thanksgiving is that reminder that we need more than once a year that we have abundant blessings. Let’s all have that grateful heart and let it last the year long.
I want to take a moment to say thanks to all the people I encountered this year. To those buyers I helped with the purchase of their first home, thank you for reminding me of the joy of beginning and the excitement of planning projects. To those buyers who were transferred here from places far, thank you for reminding me of the resilience of each us when we have to adapt to changes in our lives. Thank you for reminding me that kindness and help comes in such forms as giving a person the name of a handyman or inviting them to lunch or listening to a personal trial of moving. To those sellers who sold the home with so many memories to move to another stage in life, thank you for reminding me how important each memory with family and friends is. To those sellers who were selling a parent’s or loved one’s home , thank you for reminding me that sorrow is a precious part of life and helps us live more fully in the moment.
Thank you to the Brinkoetter family for being that cohesive work family that can be competitive but fair and helpful . When one person succeeds, others do as well. Thank you for that environment in real estate – a very competitive arena.
Any thank you to my family and friends for understanding the business of real estate with its hours, phone calls and challenges. So many blessings and that doesn’t even touch my life outside of the real estate business.
My wish to all – is to start each day with a grateful heart and especially a Thanksgiving holiday of true thanksgiving and peace.
