This year and every year, I’m thankful for you for being a part of my life.

What I love about November is Thanksgiving—it’s about giving thanks, which aligns with my core value of having an attitude of gratitude. Gratitude, in my view, is a muscle; the more you exercise it, the more empowered and resilient you become. Especially in today’s world, filled with stressors and challenges, cultivating gratitude is essential.

I believe in three simple ways to practice gratitude in daily life. Firstly, I make it a habit to identify three things I’m grateful for within the past 24 hours. While I’m not consistently keeping a gratitude journal, I do start my mornings with a prayer and acknowledge three things I’m thankful for. Secondly, I reach out to my relationships—friends, family, even strangers—via email, text, or any gesture that brings a smile to their faces. Thirdly, giving back to the community is crucial.

This holiday season, I’ve been fortunate to initiate a blessings basket project in collaboration with Rush University students through the Rush Education Career Hub. We’re gathering Thanksgiving meal ingredients to donate to families participating in their food medicine program. In conclusion, I extend warm Thanksgiving greetings to you and your family. 

In conclusion, I want to wish you and your family a happy Thanksgiving. To all my clients, friends, and family, thank you for your support. I appreciate and care for each one of you deeply. 

And as always, call or email me if you have any real estate questions. I would be happy to help you.
