Thanksgiving - Year Round

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker

Coming up this week is one of my favorite holidays, Thanksgiving!

These are challenging times, which is why I cherish this day.  Everyday I take a few moments to be grateful for good things in my life and give thanks.  On Thanksgiving Day I celebrate that I always have something to be grateful for and it becomes my anchor for the year to come.  

The feast I enjoy today is not too different from the holiday meal I enjoyed growing up - truly comfort food! Picture a traditional golden brown turkey, crispy skin on the outside & moist on the inside, basic tasty celery & mushroom stuffing, Campbell's GreenBean casserole, and freshly baked candied yams cubed, smothered in Vermont Maid syrup (or brown sugar & butter) and topped with gooey marshmallows! Pumpkin and Pecan pies with freshly whipped cream to top it off!  How can we not be thankful!!

 My giving thanks range from, my children, the grand children I have been blessed with, sunrises and sunsets, a warm fresh bagel with cream cheese, a roof over my head, my very old & sweet "kitty", Peach, who still wakes me every morning, popcorn at the movies...and I could go on and on...I am most grateful to the brave men & women who put their lives in harms way 24 hours a day, at "home" and in places foreign to them, so you and I can enjoy a sense of peace, security, and freedom here in the USA.

 Regardless of my mood, after several "thank you's", my spirit is lifted and I am smiling.  Have you taken a moment to consider your small and not so small things in life you may be thankful for?  Give it a try - it's an energizing experience.  

Today our investments are being challenged, so I want to remind you that your real estate investment is still your most stable security.  Historically, recovery from a down trend in the real estate market has brought appreciation in values higher than ever before. . . Something to be grateful for!

You can contact me with your questions, concerns and/or interest in making a real estate investment with today's opportunities and challenges.  You have the benefit of my 25+ years experience in our ever changing markets, and if I don't have the answer, I'll make sure we figure out where to get it! 

 Best wishes to you and your loved ones for a Grateful and Happy Thanksgiving

What a great blog, and a great thought if we start to list all the things that we are grateful for it can really turn our mood around.
