I must complain the cards are ill shuffled till I have a good hand.
I know little about the game of poker. My husband is a self-employed cattleman and farmer and I am a commissioned sales professional. I have always felt those two things alone were "gamble" enough for my life.
But several of my friends and colleagues love to challenge each other to a "friendly" game of poker after a long day of meetings when we gather together in one place from the far corners of the USA for various corporate events. Because of their competitive nature, I do think of them when I see this quote:
Cards are war, in disguise of a sport.
I was more than a little excited when this group informed me this past Thursday as we gathered in Dallas for a manager's meeting, that the proceeds from their scheduled game that night would go to the charity which is at the heart of much of what I do, the Boot Campaign, a non-profit organization which helps to support several wounded warrior projects.
And I was even MORE excited when the next morning this group handed me $1,020.00 as their contribution to the Boot Campaign! These mortgage professionals within my company all have a heart as big as the state of Texas we were in and I'm blessed to call them not only co-workers and colleagues, but FRIENDS.
Thank you, HEROES of the mortgage business, for not only going the extra mile in your own community to serve your clients, but for going the extra mile to give to one of the finest non-profit organizations in America, the Boot Campaign, which in turn will give to the men and women of the United States Military for various wounded warrior projects.
All I can say is - Now THAT's a winning hand!
