TGIF: Grateful Hearts

Come ye thankful people come.
Raise the song of harvest home;
All is safely gathered in,
Ere the winter storms begin.
— Henry Alford

Yes – that is the origin and still today we celebrate the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year. Specially here – land of plentiful fruit & vegetables, fresh fish, dairy products and home grown fresh meat & poultry, not to mention the local wine, beer and cider! An accident of birth or a lucky migration brought us here to peace and plenty – this is the weekend we can truly appreciate that as we gather with family and friends to share a celebratory meal and memories of past Thanksgiving days.

In turn, our team is is truly grateful for the loyalty and friendship of our clients and colleagues – the real estate business has been good to us thanks to you, your families & friends. We wish you all good health, a great long weekend, a happy Thanksgiving and an appreciative nod to our farmers and those who grow our food.
We think that the concept of paying it forward is a relatively new one – not! Below we are including thoughts from an American sociologist, historian and civil rights activist born in 1868

“Give us grateful hearts…in this the season of Thanksgiving. May we be thankful for health and strength, for sun and rain and peace. Let us seize the day and the opportunity and strive for that greatness of spirit that measures life not by its disappointments but by its possibilities, and let us ever remember that true gratitude and appreciation shows itself neither in independence nor satisfaction but passes the gift joyfully on in larger and better form.”
W.W.B. Dubois – 1868 – 1963

We couldn’t have said it better ourselves today!
