My #1 Reason For Having Gratefulness in 2019.

Real Estate Agent with GreatWest Realty DRE# 00827565

Without devoting special words about the blessings my children are, there is no way I can get through the "2019 Thankfulness Challenge" that Debe Maxwell has presented.  Each of my four children has unique interesting personalities.  But, they all have artistic and/or musical creativity shining through in common! There is another thing all four of my children share.  They have all worked in the real estate profession at one point or another, but have moved on to other careers. 

Valerie, my oldest, has a gift for party planning and inflatables.  She is the owner of our local "Balloon Butler" business in the Greater Sacramento Region.   

My son, Randy, is U.S. Navy Retired.  He served on the Aircraft Carriers, U.S.S. Kittyhawk and the U.S.S. Abraham Lincoln (1987 - 2007).  He currently, works in the flooring department of our local Lowe's Home Improvement Store.

Daughter, Tami, has a doctorate in Clinical Psychology, and is in private practice in Reno, Nevada.  In prior years, she was a high school honors English teacher.

My youngest daughter, Jill, has worked approximately 25 years in the financial realm at Franklin Templeton, here in Sacramento.  After graduating from college at age 20, she worked for a time as a Realtor, then moved on to title company operations, before her current position at Franklin Templeton.

I'm very proud of them all!

Hi Myrl Jeffcoat

You have featured your children before.  I can see why you are so proud of them. You make a beautiful family and are so lucky to have them rather close to you.  Of course, they are lucky to have you as their loving mother... that goes without saying but I just said it!

Hello Myrl - a great story and photo.  Each child of yours is different but they obviously are quite fortunate to share the love of the same mother and I am sure for that they are quite grateful.  Very nice.

Myrl you have a lovely family of very talented kids (adults)!!  Of course I wonder who inspired them all Momma!!  And how lucky you are that 3 of them live in town and the other is a short plane ride away. So much to be grateful for!

Thanks everyone for you kind comments.  Yes, I certainly feel blessed for my family.  As for whether some of my children's traits came from me, I will say this.  It has been said that insanity is hereditary - that parents get it from their kids.  Likewise, I often feel any moments of brilliance I have, originated from my children.  There have been times when they have been the only adult in the room!

Oh Myrle - your son and daughters are as gorgeous as you are. You are all gifted with creative talent and uniqueness that sets you apart. There is a lot of professional talent in your family genes and I can understand why you are so happy to celebrate whatever occasions come up with them. 

The content is so loving and beautifully written too. Family really is the best reason on earth to get up everyday. You have every reason on earth to be proud and I wish you all many of life's choicest blessings.
