I'm still behind on emails and blog reading and writing my children's story, which means I still haven't figured out how to squeeze more time out of a day, but...
...from the back porch I can see the hollow changing colors; and hear the music of our little waterfall joined by a chorus of frogs.
...my little real estate train is moving a little faster and farther down the track.
...and tonight I get to go hear Harry Connick Jr. perform live, thanks to a generous friend.
Sweet! Sweet! Sweet!
Here are a few others from the past week...
Monday: joining other bloggers in calling for peace around the world; soft sound of rain falling on the leaves above you; systems finally falling into place; your car passing inspection; friends who keep your business in mind and give you real estate referrals; seasoned agents who generously share advice and tips for success; new listings
Tuesday: photography shoots; property tours with friends; sweet potato french fries; a call from your mom
Wednesday: your name drawn to win a $50 Visa card; appointments with client-friends; helping a young couple find just the right house to lease for them and their two big dogs
Thursday: cotton candy clouds at sunrise; bundling up for a morning walk; mist rising from your pond; colleagues who share their tips for success; the way Photoshop can erase wrinkles; moving closer to closing deals; taking part in a discernment; Terry Boer's Chicken and Rice Casserole (recipe to come soon!)
Friday: colorful sunrises; enthusiastic, supportive colleagues; lunch with your daughter; spicy soup on a cool day; a funny-movie-double-feature-evening with your kids
Saturday: mornings with no alarm clocks; moving forward on a transaction; dropping in on a friend; Mary Kay's homemade corn chowder; a UT Longhorn win, shared with friends
Sunday: Mass with your family; talking with your mom, even if it's just over the phone; butterflies; researching a haunted house for a customer; anticipation of hearing Harry Connick Jr. in person!

(And if you've figured out how to squeeze more seconds from a day, please share that, too!)
"Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything that is beautiful; for beauty is God's handwriting - a wayside sacrament.
Welcome it in every fair face, in every fair sky, in every fair flower, and thank God for it as a cup of blessing."
