Thankful For Helpers And Protectors

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty 0575737

Icing TreatAt this year's Thanksgiving time I think we all ponder what we may be thankful for at this point in our lives. For me what bubbled up to top of mind, I am thankful for

      The Helpers and Protectors.

What I mean by that, in ALL our struggles in every facet, we have teachers, advisors, friends, family, even strangers that just seem to be there to help. WELL OVER 90% of people will help you with what they can with their ability and resources often if you just ASK. The Protectors part are those special people that tune into when you are vulnerable in ceratin areas and shield you from all the harm that can come your way in the world. Caregivers you see, people who warn you about stuff, our police and military, parents, good friends or spouses, tons of protectors for you. Reversing it a bit, YOU are a great helper and protector OF OTHERS, so in maybe a pay it forward manner, blessings are going to others, when you do these two roles. Be thankful for the Helpers and Protectors, SPECIAL SPECIAL people. They add to the abundance of your day and life. HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!

Funny, I was just talking about this the other day to some random dude who called to ask questions about becoming a real estate agent. I told him I did not get to where I am today all by myself. I had help along the way from many mentors and wise people who pointed me in the right direction ahd helped guide my career. No person is an island, no matter what Paul Simon says.
