The end of the year is upon us. With all the hustle and bustle that normally takes place this time of year, I wanted to share a few thoughts with you. No matter your race, sex, religion, creed, age or stage of life, this is a time of year that is for reflection on the best, for recounting of blessings, and for thinking about what lies ahead. But even more important, it is a time for friends, family and those close to you to enjoy a meal, good conversation, and some pleasant time together; perhaps a little football too! Maybe you are missing someone dear to you this year; be glad for the time you had with them. Perhaps this year has been particularly challenging and difficult; be hopeful for better days ahead. Maybe this has been a successful year for you; be thankful for the blessings in your life. Life moves at such a fast pace, especially here in southern California, so I hope that in this holiday season you have opportunity to slow down just a little and enjoy the simpler and yet significant things in life.
There will always be time for shopping and presents, parties and events, to-do’s and checklists, but what really matters in life is relationships and sharing the time we have with those around us. I hope you have time this holiday season to enjoy the relationships in your life, even the hard ones.
With that said, I want to thank you for being a client, colleague, friend or family member who has allowed me to be a part of your life. I look forward to all that is in store for you in the coming days, months and years, and to being able to help you in any way that I can.
I hope you can take time this season to pause and thank God for His blessings on your life. Thank you for reading my blogs; I look forward to having more insightful commercial real estate information to share with you in the New Year!!
Happy Holidays, Happy Thanksgiving, Happy New Year, and Merry Christmas!!
