Thankful Thursdays ~ Thoughtful Gestures

By
Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker United Realtors® ~ 512.750.6899

A thoughtful gesture can make your day with a colorful surprise. Last week-end a Coldwell Banker agent/friend and I attended a friend/colleagues funeral. She passed away way too soon from cancer at 54 and it was a humbling experience to witness. 

My friend and I have worked together on many transactions and she knows I'm wearing a nurses hat a lot of the time right now as a care giver and took the time to brighten my day. Thank you Vicky Harris for the lovely flowers.

"The only way to have a friend is to be one." Ralph Waldo Emerson

Its sad any one you know passes away! This is so true and painful when its someone you knew for a while and worked together. The pain doubles.  All you can do is to help their family in any which way you can

I think it is always important to give without asking for anything in return. These are I believe the most important gestures to make.
