I can barely move I am so full! Turkey Day is one of my favorite Holidays, and not just because of the delicious pumpkin pie or the savory stuffing (that I like extra crispy)! It’s a day when we can pause and give thanks for all of the wonderful things that we have in our lives. This Thanksgiving I would like to share a list of things I’m very grateful for:
1. My two Bulldogs Desi & Chloe. Snoring, snorting, smelly and all … they make sure I never take myself too seriously. Plus it’s really funny to hear a telemarketer’s reaction when I tell them I have to go because my 2 “children” are fighting over a toy. I put the phone down on the desk and see how long they will listen. If you have never heard my dogs over the phone, they sound like two 80-year-old asthmatic men who are trying to kill each other. It’s kinda scary.
3. My Northcrest Neighborhood filled with genuine, fun-loving neighbors. Since moving to Atlanta in 2002 I have lived in Mid-Town, Buckhead, Toco Hills, Chamblee, Brookhaven and Marietta. I like to move every year or so… I guess I’m restless. But I can finally say I’ve found “home” If you’ve never been to Northcrest, you really should come see where all the cool people live!
4. My success in 2009. This year was one of my best years in Real Estate and the best part was it was so much FUN!!! Every single client I had the pleasure of working with was delightful! I can honestly say that my clients are my friends and I feel so blessed that they chose me to help them. Thanks guys!
5. Last, but certainly not least, I am most grateful for is my beautiful Mother. I think we all have some kind of experience in our lives dealing with loss or the sickness of a loved one. For me, that experience is with my mother. She has Parkinson’s, and for the longest time I was angry and in denial. However, about a year ago something shifted, and I realized that her illness created an opening in my heart which is now filled with a compassion that allows me to connect and love her more than I ever thought possible. Every moment we spend together is precious. I am so grateful she is my mom. For those of us lucky enough to know her, it is easy to see that she’s an Angel sent by God who is teaching us to love each other and love life with each day that passes.
Happy Thanksgiving, one and all!
