Counting My Blessings - 04.17.16

Home Inspector with Complete Home Inspections, Inc. TN Lic#050

    This is my last post of the week and, of course, this will the first time in a long time that I not done a minimum of ten. There are more important things than ActiveRain. For one, my health. I am so grateful that my ills are a thing of the past and no amount of blogging or points are worth that.
    Early in the week, we had a brunch/invocation for RED day next month. Because I am supportive of these KW events, Annelle and I attended. There were several heart-wrenching videos as the place we will be working on involves foster care. The videos brought back many burieed memories of when I lived in an orphanage. I feel these kids deserve a break and a leg up. I'm all in.
    Despite the thinventory, we had a good week and I look forward towards next week being even better. We have an office presentation Tuesday and I start the first official week of BOLD on Wednesday. I’m excited. It seems as if I have been stuck in a rut, marketing wise. Perhaps next week I will learn how to “Top Dogs” work and market smarter.
    Overall, all is well in my world and I hope that it is in yours too. I find that I am safe. Who really could ask for more?

And that my friends, is my 2¢’s worth for this evening.

We often forget to count the blessings and instead complain about what is wrong.

Michael, sounds like things are going well for you. It must have been tough early in your life. So glad you are giving back to help other kids in that situation.

Michael- it sounds like all is well with you!  Sometimes we push ourselves to try to do too much.  Instead we have to pick and choose our priorities.

Top of the evening Michael.  I think you will enjoy BOLD and the insights it offers.  It does not offer instant success or miracles.  It will allow doors to be opened within that will make the difference.  Anxious to hear when it goes well for you.  Mark

I hope you are back to great health this week.  I've made the mental determination to not get sick all year long.  So far so good.  And it's very cool that you're helping with a cause very personal and dear to your own heart based on your experience.

Hi Michael - I did not know and thanks for sharing that you lived in an orphanage.  The person I just quoted in my blog, Dave Thomas, was an orphan.  He started the Dave Thomas Center for Adoption.  You will see a place for donations in every Wendy's.  When I was with the Briad Restaurant Group we ran a golf outing every year and the proceeds went to that foundation.
