Thanksgiving's "with me in spirit run."

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with ViewHomes of Clark County - Nature As Neighbors

Thanksgiving's "with me in spirit" run.

This morning, my daughter, who currently lives in Denver, ran in the city's traditional Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot. Knowing that it's also a tradition for me to run on Thanksgiving morning, she asked me to run the event with her, from afar.

Therefore, at 10:15 Denver time and 9:15 locally,  we both began our 4 mile runs. It was easy to imagine her lively spirit every step of the way and see her face reflected in the beauty of nature. Strong relationships are like that - you can feel the connection regardless of where you happen to be physically.

It's a run that will remain with me for a long time - mainly because she too recognizes that our bond is strong enough to transcend the miles. Hopefully, we'll be really running together next Thanksgiving day, but today, we shared a wonderful "with me in sprit run." 

Happy Thanksgiving and I hope you're able to share it with the ones you love.

Here's daughter Kelsea - and her boyfriend - both big Broncos Fans!

ViewHomes™ grew out of our passion for nature, beautiful surroundings, and peaceful environments. Starting together in an urban environment, over the years we've gravitated towards areas with smaller populations and less density. We now enjoy our lifestyle in a rural environment, but with close proximity to metropolitan areas where we appreciate all the amenities of fine restaurants, shopping, and an easy drive to an international airport.
Living in ViewHomes™ is like having “elbowroom for the soul”.

Rene - thanks so much. She also cooked her first Thanksgiving meal for family and friends last night. When she texted me last night - she said' " I pulled it off Mama - I feel like such a grown up." Lol.
