Do you have Monday January 18th off as a paid Holiday from work? Since none of the (3) winning Powerball tickets were sold in this region I expect it is business as usual for most of us this coming week.  I would like you to absorb the following quote from Dr. King as I suggest it demonstrates the real value and spirit of giving, along with the importance that living a thankful life brings to those who choose “the positives” as we each face a new day. And being ‘positive’ is absolutely a choice, amongst our many choices. Move away from the negative, and surround yourself with positives. Be thankful.. In every moment. Be kind. Especially to those with whom you are closest. Here’s the quote that is one of my favorites by Dr. King, and I’ll briefly explain why:

“All labor that uplifts humanity has dignity and importance and should be undertaken with painstaking excellence.”
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

The reason I like this quote so much is because it touches close to home.  My Dad R.I.P., and my Mom, always and consistently supported me with whatever I wanted to do. Their attitudes and actions support value, and balance in life. Finding something that you love to do, that really helps people in some way, and doing it to the very best of your ability – and doing so by being helpful, thankful and kind – gives you the blessed opportunity that you will rarely feel that you are working in this life. As we wake up this weekend to winter weather now being the norm here in the Maine Lakes Region, I suggest:  Be thankful. I am thankful to Anne Plummer for our professional relationship.  Doing the best I know how here, each week, is something I both value, and give thanks for.  Getting to know Anne and her team of dedicated professionals has been a delightful bonus and brings my life added value: Because she and her team do care, to be the absolute best for you and towards your Real Estate needs, every day.  Find out how, for yourself!
