We Need Your Prayers For a Veteran

Mortgage and Lending with Fairway Independent Mortgage NMLS #196099

Today I write the this blog with a heavy heart as we pay tribute to all the veterans that sacrificed their lives for our country,  my friend and Realtor partner is fighting for his life and he happens to be a veteran.

I am asking that all that read this blog to pray for Donald Cosby with Keller Williams Realty. Don is a father, a husband, a Realtor, and a man of faith.

I am praying today for his recovery and for his family.

Today I am reminded of just how fragile life can be. Life is too short to sweat the small things.

I will keep this day at the top of mind when I get angry or frustrated about things out of my control. At the end of the day none of this matters without our health and strength.

I am grateful to have spent the day with my husband, my two boys, and my mother.

When life doesn't seem to be going as planned or how we would like, please remember that some did not make it another day.

Live, love, and laugh are my words to live by....

Get well soon my friend. This is my personal tribute to a veteran on Memorial Day.
