The Night BefoRE Thanksgiving

Real Estate Agent with Samsel & Associates 0790808

Twas the night before Thanksiving, and all through the 'Rain

Not a creature was posting to whine or complain.

All were sharing friendly comments and thoughful answers

Ignoring the wanna be's and points-advancers. 

The blogs were all posted on AR with care

In hopes that the feature fairy would be less rare.

With advice from Barbara T and Roy Kelley

We knew we'd have enough business to fill our belly.

The Siegels and Bob Crane raise the bar,

Joan Cox and Debbie Reynolds are superstars. 

There's nothing trivial about Wayne Martin,

Just thinking about our AR friends causes us to hearten.

We've been inspired by the Hansons, the Spears,

and Nina and Michael and Anna Banana for years.

Grant Schneider, you're the best, and Anita is great,

We're so blessed with heros with admirable traits.

Spammers don't bother us, students are fun.

There's enough business here for everyone.

I couldn't mention everyone, your names don't easily rhyme,

But know that I would have, if given more time.

We're grateful to each of you for all that we receive

From the tapestry of AR that you help us to weave.

We've learned so much about real estate and living

That it seems fitting to thank you on Thanksgiving

For listening and encouraging and always remembering

That building a business is great but not everything.

With one last wish upon the Active Rain star,

We thank you for referrals from near and far,

And send to you our fondest prayers

for your Thanksgiving bounty and full chairs.
