Blooming Relationships - Realtor® - Carlisle, PA.

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams of Central PA RS334568

Thank you to Jim Cheney for  putting forth the following:
"This seasonal challenge is to tell us how you show your clients, business associates, or friends and family that you are thankful for their business/friendship."

For me, relationships are like a precious plant that must be cultivated with care.  Just like some plants require direct sunlight, while others do better with shade, and some plants need daily attention while others thrive when unattended for weeks, each relationship must be handled with the same mindful, personal attention

Therefore, it is never a 'one-size-fits-all' template.  For some, it's a daily text, for others it may be a twice a year phone call.  I think the most crucial aspect is to keep it real.  So, to address the 'how' aspect of this post, I think a less frequent sincerity shines brighter than overdone automated mass campaigns.

I may:
-Unexpectedly buy a bouquet of flowers
-Drop off a specific candy known to be a favorite
-Mail a unique card that is appropriate for the recipient
-Send a joke/riddle that I think might bring forth a chuckle
-Buy a bottle of something 'bubbly' to celebrate a special occasion

Authentic thankfulness cannot be contained - it bubbles up, overflows, and spills over onto all within close proximity - but it doesn't stop there - No, it rises up and reaches distant shores far, far away...

The plant I shared in the accompanying photo is from my uncle Nino.  I  remember seeing this plant in his home when I was a little girl.  He passed away in 1978, yet this plant has endured, and sits in my sun-room today as an ever-present reminder to me of my thankfulness for his life and his abundant love.  Furthermore, it symbolizes the timeless truth that continual care from the heart keeps plants and people flourishing!

So true!  Relationships are not cookie-cutter -- each one is individual and are to be watered with love and attention to grow!  Enjoyed your blog and loved the picture Maria Sapio

Thank you John Meussner - but I must say, this is absolutely a very forgiving, 'low maintentence' plant - that's why it has endured so long!

So true that one size does not fit all. The plant must be a cherished memory for you. Very nice!

I don't know you Maria, but hope I have the privilege of meeting you soon.  Since you are in Carlisle and I have a Camp Hill office, I hope it's soon! 

You wrote a great post.  One size does not fit all - you explained it so well.

Very insightful Maria Sapio .  I agree with you that it should be a more spontaneous thing than a scheduled or automated event.  Thank you for participating!
