Today I was with client’s who have been wonderful. I have worked for them on several transactions and today’s transaction was an inter-family sale. I love meeting with them, they laugh, joke, smile and are truly good people. Never a harsh word about anyone. I know much about their lives and it amazes me how kind, generous and open minded these people are after enduring more than many parents would ever have to endure. But then I thought and realized those that have lived with difficulties and challenges in their lives tend to see the good in others (but many times not themselves). They are so welcoming and embracing. From very traditional families, devout Catholics, and believe the church’s stance against equality for certain people is unchristian. She has said people are someone’s son, daughter, brother, sister, father or mother, aunt, uncle or friend and how could people turn from them. Seeing them always reminds me of how they live and it gives me hope and makes me feel good.
Later I had to go to Costco’s. I was looking for something for an event but they did not have what I needed. As I turned around guess who was standing behind me. I hear his laugh and their daughter and son-in-law’s. We ended up talking for another 30 minutes. It made for a wonderful day. I try to write about what I am grateful for each day and clearly these people are on today’s list.
