I am Thankful (DocuSign/ActiveRain Thankful Contest)

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Venture Realty International

As I started thinking of time and things that I am thankful for, I realized there is a major part of my life that I am very thankful for.

My mom has always wanted a dream home way up in the mountains of Wyoming. 

I have been able to build this home for her during the last few years.  Modern technology with cell phones, satellite Internet, email, DocuSign, e-Fax, and more have allowed me to spend a lot of time in Wyoming and still work on my real estate referrals and consulting for Latin America. 

I've been able to spend time with my mom and get to know family members that I really never knew because I was far away.  I made many new friends, spent a lot of time in the beautiful country and enjoyed the wildlife. 

I am so very thankful that I have been fortunate enough to do this.

It was nice to see your little friend again on your glove. I think he likes you.  Nice forest, flowers and even a moose.  Nice photo shoot.

Gary,

Every mother should have a son like you! I'll bet she's very, very proud of you and you benefited from the experience too! I applaud you loudly for what you have done. I can almost see your mom inside that beautiful home of hers getting ready for Thanksgiving Dinner for you and all the family. You all have a lot to be thankful for - and to be blessed with all those beautiful things in nature too! Oh, what a beautiful place to call home!

Your photos are beautiful! Your story is a treasure!

Blessings and thanks for sharing this beautiful Thanksgiving/family story.
