Pretty cool Emerson chalkboard

Managing Real Estate Broker with Brad MacKenzie

I just showed a house that is being well-lived in. That is, there is stuff everywhere because the occupants are enjoying life. We looked past it, knowing why, and loving it. There's always something that grabs me in each place I go. This permanent piece of artwork was hung on the chimney. Such good words to hold.

What a wonderful quote!  That is a philosophy we should all live by.  Imagine what the world would be like if people lived by that credo...

Wonderful and meaningful words that perhaps call to each and every one of us. Proudly displayed. A HOME for Sale with a 'WAY OF LIFE.' Perhaps some fairly good vibrations and energies in that home, Brad.

Good morning Brad. This Emerson guy was pretty smart. If all of us followed these word of wisdom, this world would be a better place to live.

Brad, looking at life in an optimistic way, ALWAYS offers gifts! I love this one in particular and probably would enjoy these people...I'm sure they are great conversationalists, if not great housekeepers!
