Grateful to Wake Every Morning and Sleep at Night

Real Estate Agent with HomeStarr Realty RS143922A

I am so grateful to wake up every morning and go to sleep each night. I am truly blessed to have so many close friends who care about each other in my community. I have friends that I had when I was growing up as a child. I have other friends that I have made throughout the years. I come from a small family and many of them have moved to Florida. Some have moved to other states. 

Personally, I like the change of seasons. In Summer, I love to go swimming and have fun in the sun. I get to see most of my pool buddies they are so special to me.  Fall is the colorful time of year light jackets are required. Plus I love the clothes I wear and the wonderful walks .  In Winter, I get to hibernate and not feel bad about it. I also love the clothes the wonderful faux fur coats and boots. The fun Holidays and parties are full of cheer. It is a glorious time of the year. Then comes the snow as long as I don't have to drive or shovel it I love it. Just when Winter has become tiresome Spring is in the air and the trees are in bloom as well as the flowers. Birds are singing the grass is turning green, squirrels are running around and a new season is beginning. What a joy to wake up in the morning and sleep at night. 



I am also blessed to have wonderful clients many of who have come back to me to buy again. They have recommended me to others which is an honor. In Real Estate this is considered to be successful. In my book too as it means I have made people happy. Many clients have become friends. Many friends have become clients 

I am grateful each day to know I can speak to my family by phone or text whenever I want. Life is good and I am grateful to live each day as I choose. To love the work I do. I am especially grateful for my health. Many friends have been lost in the last several years or have been fighting illnesses. Yes, I am grateful to wake up every morning and sleep at night 

This is my 4th grateful entry to Debe Maxwell, CRS   challenge

Hannah, like you, I enjoy the change of seasons.  I love swimming in mid spring through early fall.  But, each season has its special flavor.

Good morning, Hannah... what you are grateful for is what makes life good. I wish I could be grateful for sleep... I am a terrible sleeper and have never slept a lot or well.

Hannah- likes attract likes and your helping spirit and willingness to give of yourself is why you have the friends you do!!!  Our seasons don't change as much as they do up north but more than what we had in FL.

Hannah you you wrote about "snow" fits my wife perfectly:

      "Then comes the snow as long as I don't have to drive or shovel it I love it."

I am the lucky one who gets to shovel the snow, while she looks out the window singing "Let It Snow, Let It Snow" ...... LOL

George Souto I will never forget the post you wrote years ago with your mustache full of snow. It was after a very bad snowstorm.
