An Attitude of Gratitude - More Than I Deserve

Dear Diary,

I had an amazing day today!  It started out with a new investor relationship that looks to be a promising long-term relationship. I had lunch at a new Korean restaurant that I found nearby my early morning meeting. I got a call during lunch from my friend Maggie McFarland out of Pearland, Texas asking if I would welcome ANOTHER referral for one of her past clients. I had a great interview with Dr. Henderson, Director of Women & Gender Studies at UT Arlington to help me with my book that I've started. Then I got this cal out of the blue -

 

"Cathy we tried to deliver something to you over the last couple of days but you haven't been home." I replied, "Because I'm never home! I am either with clients or out with my kids. Can you deliver to my Executive Assistant?"  Delivery company, "Will they sign for it?" Me, "I suppose as long as its not a live giraffe or turtle (laughing)."  Delivery company, "Laughing, no but close. You'll need to pick it up right away. We'll deliver by 2pm." Me , "Sure"

Here's my giraffe:

 

Thank You Karen Hawkins

A gesture too kind and not deseved by me,  KAREN HAWKINS sent in appreciation for mentoring a fellow greenie. None-the-less, this is one of the sweetest (literally), kindest, thoughtful things I've experienced in my career as a Realtor. Thank you for making my day end on a very high note!

PS - If you read my featured blog today Why Do Realtors Make Such High Commission? - this makes up for the bad days.

Cathy, so glad to hear that the package finally got delivered! You deserve it - and hopefully you get a few of those chocolate treats before the kids tuck into it! :-)

Good for you. It's always nice to get a pat on the back ( so to speak ) for doing something nice. I hope this personal high continues for you for a long time to come.

Hey Karen - all the chocolate ones are gone!  We had fruit for breakfast today too. Still have a little left.

Today has been an AWESOME day for me as well as I wrote 3 sales, 1 closing, and 1 new listing all today.  This is what I have been missing for 6 years is this kind of volume business.
