I hope you are having a wonderful day and enjoying the Fall weather, no matter where you may live.  You can feel the crispness in the air and the soon-to-be-upon-us holiday season as we approach it closer and closer every day.


This is just a friendly reminder to thank those who have been a significant part of your life this year. There are those who have supported you through tough times as well as those who have been there to celebrate the good times of the past year.


We don't exist on this Earth alone.  As a species, we are drawn to others for support, friendship and association.  No matter your marital status or living situation, take this time of year to connect with someone who has had an impact on you this year. You will be amazed at how good that can make you feel.


I want to thank those who supported me through some very significant family losses this year.  I couldn't have gotten through all of this without my wonderful husband and our amazing daughters.  You mean the world to me.  My family back on the East Coast has had a rough year to say the least.  I hope I have been able to be there for you through this time as well.


So take this time to reflect on the past year.  Who do you need to thank?  Pick up the phone, get in the car and visit or send a letter to those who have supported you this year.  


I continue to be thankful for those who recommend my services on a regular basis and for those clients who trust me with their life story.  I value our time together and look forward to being a part of your growth process and helping you get to that "better place."


As always, please pass along this information to anyone you feel may benefit from its content.
