Serendipity Sundays ~ Coldwell Banker Realty Awards and More

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker United Realtors® ~ 512.750.6899

2019 was a year of change.  Coldwell Banker United Realtors became Coldwell Banker Realty which really is positive to be more uniform with the rest of the country and have one name! Business was steady and much appreciated as I ended up in the top 5% by making the  International President's Circle. I couldn't have done it without the repeat business and referrals from my wonderful clients. I'm truly blessed, thank you.

My husband who is my dearest friend and soul mate passed away Sept. 30, 2019. My Geno had been very ill for several years so I know now it was a blessing. It still didn't soften the blow. My family, my Coldwell Baker family, friends and past clients have been instrumental in helping me adjust to this life change. I've had to establish new routines and keep my sources of healing and energy fed. It's like a lamp that needs oil to burn. I'm the one with the power and responsibility to keep my life moving forward.

I have to pay attention to today.  I read in "Healing After Loss" by Martha Hickman a Latin phrase "hic et noc" which translates to "here and now." I must do what is necessary each day. This is the only day I have for sure. May I use it well.

Dorie- as they say, you're a shining example of not moving on but of moving forward. You are fortunate to have a wonderful support group with you. However I have a feeling that the support group is there partially because of the thoughtful support you've given them over the years.

Hello Dorie - 2019 was definitely a year of change for you and this chapter is more than a few pages.  Much more to come because you can and do make it happen.
