Change, Gratitude and Joy~Number 10 in the Thanksgiving Challenge

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker United Realtors® ~ 512.346.1799

Today is Thanksgiving and I am thankful for what I have and I’m feeling very blessed. Each year has grown better than the last.


William Arthur Ward summed up my feelings perfectly:

“Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.”


This year as you're enjoying the sights, sounds and aromas of Thanksgiving, please know I'm deeply thankful for the traditions we continue to share. I'm wishing you, your family and friends many blessings on the Thanksgiving Day!
