Thanksgiving Challenge 2021.

Real Estate Agent with Thompson Company, REALTORS® 240.593.2860 MD594797

I had every good intention to participate in this year's November challenge, but did not find the time to pen my grateful posts.. it's been a wonderfully busy week month. But I am writing this one with the most grateful heart this Thanksgiving morning. I have much to be thankful for. 

As I glance over my shoulder there's my office buddy, Lenny, the Real Estate Dog, who has become my shadow, my faithful assistant who's quite the buyers magnet! He is very good at posing, smiling, and snoozing on the job. 

Lennon ranks high up on the list of all I am thankful for. His quiet presence is comforting, his happiness contagious, and his personality inspiring. Lennon doesn't judge. He just loves. Lennon doesn't do upset. He waits patiently for things to calm down. 

I couldn't possibly ask for a better assistant, a better dog, a better friend. 

2021 has been another year of unique challenges, some downs and many ups, a few surprises, happy closing days, major accomplishments, growth, new dreams.. I have much to be thankful for. 

I am thankful for all of you, my ActiveRain peeps, who are so supportive and motivating, my darling daughters who are my why for it all, my clients, the best ones who give me the opportunities to help write their Real Estate stories, and for Lennon, the Real Estate Dog. 

I appreciate you all and I am thankful for each one of you. 

Wishing you a happy and peaceful Thanksgiving!

Thank you all! You are right Joan Cox, he's the best and I don't know how I ever functioned without him?

My girls are busying themselves in the kitchen (love it!) and I am contemplating squeezing in a quick run. Hope your day is simply wonderful!

Thank you 😊 We packed up early Friday morning and took a quick trip up north. We surprised a few people who are like family and my oldest daughter and I took a first peek at a university! I cannot believe that we are at this point, but I am grateful beyond measure to have such smart and kind children.

So, you are saying that Lennon gives you the opportunity to "Give Peace A Chance"?
