Nice to Meet You Patricia Feager

Real Estate Agent with Best Connections Realty, Inc. 3087750

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP, Selling Homes Changing Lives (DFW FINE PROPERTIES) Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP  wrote a heartfelt post about members we've lost in the Rain.  It really hit home as I knew many of them, either having met them, spoken to or followed their blogs.


I commented and reminded her that we had also lost Donald Urschalitz .  


Patricia's answer to me started:  "although I never met you and I don't believe we ever spoke by phone, I feel like I've known you longer than people I should know here in Flower Mound, TX."


Well, that's all I had to read!  I thought, let's take care of that right now, picked up the phone and called her.   I didn't hear back until today - that's okay because we all get busy - but am I happy she called back.  We had the most delightful conversation!  


After spending over an hour talking, now we really know each other, Patricia.  Thank you for writing that! 


It's so nice to meet you!

Hi Elyse- that was so sweet of you to remember our dear Donald Urschalitz. I still feel a sad tug at my heart when I see our old meetups pictures.

Dear Elyse Berman, PA

There is power in reaching out to others and you did that! On the day I received your phone call, you lifted me up because you cared. After talking to you yesterday, I was elated! It was the best hour I've spent in a long time.

I was reminded how important it was for some of those old AR Challenges called "Ringing in the Rain.' I would like to see that challenge, 'Ringing in the Rain,' resurrected so that all members who never had the chance to talk to each other by phone, will be inspired to pick up their phones and make a call, because I can testify, receiving a call from another member of ActiveRain is very powerful!

Elyse, we talked as if we knew each other and others on AR our whole life. In many ways, these members on AR are our life and they give us the power of inspiration, just like Lou Ludwig and Don Urshaltiz did for you in FL. Everything we talked about was good. All people you met over the years, such as the AR Meet-Up's that required three restaurant tables tugged at my heart.

Writing is one thing, phone calls are special treats, but meeting people in person is a gift that keeps on giving because the memory is pasted in our minds and souls.

When we talked about the hunt for Brian and what's going on in FL, people you miss like Kathy Streib who lived in Del Ray but moved to Houston, hurricane season and how people have to be ready to evacuate over the causeway, always being prepared to leave when there are hurricane warnings, and what FL looks like when you live there, or your background growing up in the NY/Jersey area, including similarities NY and Chicago had for me, you actually painted various pictures in my mind about  people from all walks of life, places, and how connected we are to each other, even if it is just news stories.

We talked about Margaret Rome who doesn't wait for a contest or a challenge here on AR but calls people anyway because she cares and just how much we appreciate her calls

After we talked, I turned on the news and heard Gabby Petito's stepfather, Jim Schmidt speak and what he said, went straight to the heart:

"You can always make money, but  you can't make up for lost time."

Elyse, the words we shared, what I heard shortly thereafter from that news clip, and the people on AR who are being remembered because we lost them are important reminders to live life abundantly because the only person who has control and the power to do that is you!  

Until we talk again, I already miss you and I care.

Good morning, Elyse... Patricia and I have had some telephone conversations and I feel as if I "know" her without ever having met her. And that's so true with so many people here in the Rain. And when I actually do meet those people it's like we've been friends for years and years.

What a wonderful post! I too have spoken with Patricia, and met her as well, and she truly is a delightful person. I'm glad you were able to connect!

Hi Kat Palmiotti - Perhaps you and Elyse Berman, PA will have a phone chat. She told me a lot about her life when she lived in NY. It's amazing how much RAINERS have in common! 

I remain thankful to you Kat too and the time I spent with you both in Montana and on phone calls was always meaningful. 

Thoughtfulness and connecting means a lot. Elyse and Kat, thank you! Have a wonderful day!!!

Hello Elyse - ActiveRain Meet-Ups and Ringing-in-the-Rain challenges of the past as well as Zoom meetings each Tuesday now certainly have extended the "reach" of this community.
