YouTube Thursdays - Giving Thanks 2019

Real Estate Broker/Owner with ViewHomes of Clark County - Nature As Neighbors

YouTube Thursdays - Thankful 



We wanted to take a moment to say thank you for your support and encouragement throughout the year. Your comments and friendship in Active Rain are greatly appreciated.


Today, we'll be spending Thanksgiving with our son, his wife, and three of our grandchildren. Our hope is that you too will spend the day in good company,  with plenty of love and laughter.  


There is always so much to be grateful for everyday. For us, it boils down to the little things. The things we might take for granted. We try to keep this line from a favorite movie in mind: 


"The truth is, now I don't travel back at all, not even for the day,  I just try to live every day as if I've deliberately come back to this one day, to enjoy it, as if it was the final full day of my extraordinary, ordinary life."  About Time (2013) 


Happy Thanksgiving.

ViewHomes™ grew out of our passion for nature, beautiful surroundings, and peaceful environments. Starting together in an urban environment, over the years we've gravitated towards areas with smaller populations and less density. We now enjoy our lifestyle in a rural environment, but with close proximity to metropolitan areas where we appreciate all the amenities of fine restaurants, shopping, and an easy drive to an international airport.
Living in ViewHomes™ is like having “elbowroom for the soul”.

Hello Debb and Bernie - there is something about being deliberate(in all forms) that helps organize thoughts, feelings and actions in a form that can become more manageable.  Then there is chaos that exists that may be a happy interruption.  You know, it's all good.  Have a good Thanksgiving Day - I am sure you will.

Love the quote, and it fits with our mutual dedication to mindfulness.  Doing anything other diminishes one's capacity to enjoy and to receive.  Love the different moments you chose.  A

Oh! The quote gave me goosebumps! Thank you, my friend, for all you do. Glad you got to spend time with family. Looks like we'll be in Washougal early to mid-January. I'll be in touch!

Hi Debb & Bernie,
So glad you got to spend Thanksgiving with your son and his family. Today is really all we have, isn't it?  I haven't seen the movie About Time but now think I should.
