Mushroom Surprise ...

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams of Central PA RS334568

It's been raining for the past four days - 
So tonight, when the rain finally subsided to a light mist, I put on my boots and headed out for an evening walk...
For me, a walk is an opportunity to step into my thoughts and enjoy the abundance of beauty that surrounds me...

While out walking, I was amazed at the new shoots of mushrooms that had emerged due to the recent rainfall.  
They towered so high above the grass-line that I bent down to take a closer look.
They weren't there a few days ago...
Isn't it amazing how quickly Mother Nature can send a surprise our way ... ??


I smiled since real estate is much like Mother Nature...


While walking I reflected and celebrated some of the surprises of this past week:
*An unexpected phone call asking me to be their Realtor® -
*A random conversation with a stranger that will be an upcoming listing -
*An accepted offer and an overjoyed buyer -

The mushrooms stood tall tonight - 
I would imagine that they will be knocked down shortly when they're discovered  - but Mother Nature will not be outdone ...
She'll have new surprises ready to emerge and shall captivate our attention -

It's Sunday  - The beginning of a new week ...
I wonder what surprises await me this week ...??
Do you too await with childlike expectancy for the surprises in store for you...??

Maria this picture brought back memories from a hundred years ago, my parents used to go 'picnicking -camping' and had a 'mushroom book' with them... and there is a picture of me next to a tall mushroom like that.... also loved your analogy to Real Estate....Endre

I also love seeing the mushrooms pop-up overnight!  I'm a medicinal tree mushroom hunter on the side.  Each day is exciting because I don't know what is going to come across my desk from past efforts.  I often tell my colleagues to keep churning and don't look back.  Sometimes it takes a little while for things to come to fruition.

Christopher Pagli - Sometimes when those unexpected 'surprises' pop up, we may not fully grasp all the 'churning' that we (or others) have done under the surface - 
Thank you for stopping by to pause, read my blog, and offer your thoughts...
