We were sadden to learn this morning of the death of a Montgomery County leader in providing services for  women and families. I am privileged and honored to have known Nancy and worked with her in various community service activities. I first became aware of Nancy’s Women’s Center leadership when Joy was a hot-line volunteer in the early days of the Montgomery County Women’s Center.

Mary Ann’s Retirement Party   1 comment

It was a time for tears and a time for laughter, all mixed together in the fond memories Mary Ann and her co-workers were sharing. We are please to have been able to capture the moment.

Prayer of Saint Francis of Assisi

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury,pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.

O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.  Amen

A Nurses Nurse   4 comments

As long as I have known Mary Ann, she not only wanted to be a nurse, but to be the best. After years of practice, she is retiring from her full-time position at St. Joseph’s in Bryan, Texas. Today, friends, peers and family will be gathering to celebrate her service to people and a profession she loves dearly. Mary Ann is truly the “poster-child” for people who love their job, which is way I have referenced her often in my years of career counseling.

This is not to say that she hasn’t been looking forward to this day, for she has been counting the days. Although she is about to start a new life phase, she will not be turning her back on her life’s profession, which will make her new life phase the best of both worlds. The position Mary Ann has held will be filled, but no one can replace her devotion to caring for others and to sharing her knowledge and skills.

A Big Thanks To The Guys on The Roof   Leave a comment

Roofing Collage blog

The crew from Donahoe Roofing have spent the last two days replacing our roof in 100+ degrees. I say 100+ when the ground temperture was over 100 degrees, only God knowing how much hotter it was near the roof surface. Since I have been around most of the time, I have witnessed how draining it has been. To deal with the heat, they have spent twelve plus hours each day doing a job that normally would have been completed in a little more than a day. It should be noted that this crew has been working in temperatures near or over 100 degrees for over a month now.

It can be a bitch working construction in the gulf coast.

“I believe in taking one picture of one picture.”
— William Eggleston

plants-may-15-2008-2281org-web-ii1This week I read an article on the current Whitney Museum of American Art exhibit of William Eggleston* photos, entitled, Democratic Camera. Considered by people as one of America’s most celebrated photographers, “Through snapshot moments, Eggleston has captured and continues to capture a time and a place so concretely and with such a depth of clarity and visual skill that few can argue with his place among the greats of photography.” You can learn more about this current art exhibit by clicking here.

July 4th Weekend   1 comment

It’s One of Those Working Weekends

Joy has two new listings, one going into MLS today and one early next week.  They both are relo’s, which generally involve additional work on our part.  The above image was an accident as I was busily taking photos of Joy’s latest listing. It’s always fun taking photos of attractive, well taken care of homes.

Now it’s back to generating more marketing on this holiday for our 232nd birthday when most Americans are experiencing economic anxiety at its highest level since 1981. It’s time to “open up the window, let the bad air out.”
