Good morning, Patricia... "today, while the blossoms still cling to the vine," is a song my sorority won first prize for in my university's annual Panhellenic singing contest. Love that song... the words, the melody... and it's remained with me for more than 50 years now.

Mar 17, 2023 05:28 AM
Patricia Feager, ABR,CRS,GRI,MRP

Good afternoon, Nina! I had an early class in Plano today and got back less than 15 minutes ago. 

"Today," is such a beautiful song. How wonderful that your sorority "won first prize." That is memorable! Taking first prize in your "university's annual Panhellenic singing contest," must have sounded like choirs of angels. 

That song holds a special place in my heart too. When I worked at Wyonegonic Camps in Denmark, Maine, the song was sung at our Evening Circle with all campers and Staff holding hands and squeezing the person's hands next to you before bedtime. It is a fine song and a good one to find peace and dream. 

May those lyrics float through your head today and give you peace of mind.

I'll have to find/make time to pen a couple of posts that would qualify for your contest, and read the entries, too. It's always fun and/or inspiring to hear how others (creatively) salvaged a transaction and saw it through to the closing table, or stood their ground when a compromise was not an option. 

Mar 17, 2023 07:18 AM
Patricia Feager, ABR,CRS,GRI,MRP

Andrea Bedard - Each time I read a new post for this challenge, I learned something new and I was inspired. I hope it will be like that for you too!

Reading the stories reconfirmed that there are similarities but no two are alike. How we use critical thinking to problem solve and come up with solutions is quite ingenious!

Jeff Dowler, CRS - Thank you! You are not a pretender. You are a GREAT supporter. And you are believable. 

I am keeping my fingers crossed that you will have the time to submit two more entries. You always have something creative to offer through your writing or your words. 

Thank you.

Good morning Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP, even if they're virtual or even in our minds' eyes, those virtual coins are mighty shiny and closer to our hands than we might think.
