Deb's Lake Conroe Real Estate & Stuff! : Gifts...I will share my chocolate with you!

Gifts...I will share my chocolate with you!

I will share my chocolate with you,

to say thank you to my friends here on Active Rain.

I am enjoying the abundance of sharing, caring and the true friendship I'm finding here in the rain!

Now, who would've thunk that it would take soaring into Cyberspace to find so many joys among us? I cannot even begin to say thank you to the many wonderful souls that have entered my world and are altering my life by the inspiration, compassion and caring that is being so freely offered! Just because of our

Active Rain!

I am touching on people each and every day here that become a positive force in more than just my business, but that affect my entire life. We are only allowed to say thank you to three of our favorites here today and it's a very good thing.

If I had the ultimate number of "important" and "pivotal" personalities here, you would all be mentioned. My list would go on for days, weeks, months.

I would lose my business, sleep and initiative to sell houses!

I would sit here scrolling through all the incredible writers here on the rain and I would eat bon-bons. Lots and lots of bon-bons. Chocolate ones. You know. The ones with that extra thick gooey milk chocolate covering that hides all different kinds of middles?

You know. You begin smashing each and every piece to get a hint of what's in the middle? But then, you realize no one else would want it so you eat it? But, that was NOT the chocolate you were looking for so you have to try again. You're not sure what that one is so you carefully squish it to see what comes out...it was pink. You wanted the chocolate one so you eat the pink one and go hunting again.

Yes, this could become a very obsessive, compulsive course of action. I now see why there are limits placed on this particular posting and I could only choose three people.

Chocolate, cheese, and wine are my top three favorite goodies in this world. chocolates

But I digress,

I would like to introduce my favorite 420 friends and writers here on Active Rain.

Now, we don't always get what we want so here goes three (3):

 

MY LISSA.

Here is a real charmer. She doesn't really mean to be. It just comes naturally. The beauty she shows externally is enhanced only by the lovliness she holds inside. Melissa Grant of Melissa GrantTennessee is a gift beyond anything we could have requested. Melissa has a heart as big as Texas. She is a loving mother, true professional Realtor and professional blogger. She has lived through adversity and has won. She has so much to offer this world and we are all lucky to get to meet her, know her and enjoy the positive energy she brings to our tables.

Lissa, I will share my chocolate with you!

 

My Ricki.

Ricki Eichler of Texas is like walking and talking sunshine. Ricki Eichler is energetic, happy and enthusiastic. She smiles and the world will smile with her and because of her. Her smile and congeniality isricki eichler genuine and contagious. This is verified by all that meet her. If you need any advice on Real Estate then she is the one to call. She is generous with her knowledge, her time and her attention. She caters to her clients and keeps them secure till the property is sold. Ricki and her husband, Don are a team to behold. They are energetic and great to be around. I have had the honor to meet Ricki and I'm looking forward to more time with her.

Ricki, I will share my chocolate with you!

 

My Liz.

Liz Carter of Texas is quite the corker! When I first began to read Liz Carter, I kept wishing she would show her real picture! Instead she was showing the model under water holding one of her signs for her business. I thought it looked great but kept wanting to see the real Liz. liz carterWell, low and behold, that's Liz. It's really her in the photo. Yes, she's that model! It's really her! That pretty much sums it up for Liz. She's a go getter, winner and fighter! She'll fight for what she believes in, win the battle and go get the prize! We are all better for knowing Liz!

Liz, I will share my chocolate with you!

and Proud of it!

Debra - for the future, when I make the chocolate list, I like dark chocolate, Godiva is my favorite;-)
Posted by Peter Nikic (Broad & Bailey Realty LLC) over 12 years ago
Peter, I will share my chocolate with you my friend! Godiva is my favorite too. I love being able to pull out the picture explanations of what each chocolate is. I still squish it though. I just can't get past that. Later in the rain~Deb

Hi Deb, Thank you so very much. You are too kind. I was so surprised when I saw myself here. You are the real chocolate. You are very sweet and everyone wants to be around you for sure. You can make an ordinary day special just by your presence. I look forward to spending lots more time with you. I'll bring truffles, and maybe my favorite dark chocolate with cranberries and macadamia nuts. mmmmmmmm:)

Deb - Thank you so much...I appreciate you, your professionalism and friendship so much ! The thing that often amazes me is that..I have met so many wonderful people here in the rain, including you...and other than the picture behind the words and post's we all have never met face to face...it's amazing to feel as though you have known someone your whole life when in reality only a short while here in cyberspace..You are a very special woman my dear friend ! Just out of curiosity...who is going to supply the "lean machine" after all the chocolate, bon bons and truffles...between all the sweets and posting..we are sure to end up with bloggers butt !
Posted by Melissa Grant, The Law of Attraction In Life & Business (A Serendipity World) over 12 years ago
Lissa, I'm afraid of that too! I look to the left of my chair here and there is a big bag of Ghirardelli Dark chocolate squares...I look at my butt and I see Ghirardelli Dark chocolate squares! Hummm...you've got a good point girlfriend! Later in the rain my friend~Deb

Hi Debra - Now that's a real friend, willing to share chocolates. And I want you to know I will be glad to share my Pot of Gold Truffle assortment with you any day. I wish I could have met you at our AR training this past week - it is so cool to meet face to face after chatting in the rain. We were known as the "rain people" at the Holiday Inn Express. Too funny :0
Posted by Renee Busse, ABR,ePRO Dyer Co. TN Real Estate (Tennessee Realty) over 12 years ago
Hi Rain Person Renee! I'll bet you did have a great time. It looked to be fun! I could use training myself. Pot of Gold truffles huh? Sounds very good! I think the picture I used in the post is Godiva although I haven't run across a couple of the pieces. I'm glad you had a great time! I love my days in the rain! Deb
Posted by Deb Brooks (Brooks Prime Properties Wichita Falls Texas) over 12 years ago

Yes I am dear.
Posted by Deb Brooks (Brooks Prime Properties Wichita Falls Texas) over 12 years ago
Deb my friend, I had to go get my chocolate...dark Belgian chocolate, then add some coconut after I've had my fill of the delicious "plain"...that word just does not go with chocolate! Oh and cheese, and oh my wonderful glorious wine, how do I miss thee, let me count the ways! This is just such a surprise, and I don't know how to thank you enough. How did you know I needed this so much right now?? Friends are like angels on earth, and you are my angel. Kisses, Liz
Posted by Liz Carter, Broker/Owner of Liz Carter & Team Realty, Katy TX (Houston) (Liz Carter & Team Realty-Your Real Estate Resource For Life!) over 12 years ago
My friend, here is a picture of me not underwater, in case you want it for something crazy you do in the future. I know you, and after you squish all those chocolate pieces (I do that too, but I leave the half eaten ones in the box)...we have so much in common, including your two other friends with me on this post. Both beautiful ladies inside and out. I've not met Melissa, but Ricki spent a couple of days with me here in Katy. Oh I was talking about squishing my chocolates :), oh well. Here the picture, and a big kiss for you. Oops guess not, my computer just went nuts. Anyway I will write you a short (as short as I can get) proper thank you, a little later. Liz Deb, for some reason this will not show the tool bar for a picture, so I can't send you a picture I took at the lake of my roses after a rain, (you can see the water drops), or my regular picture in case you ever need it for a stunt...that I know your capable of being a little misschievious :). So will have to send on anther one of your post. L The graphic was juneberry :)

Hi Liz, love that chocolate! I love coconut too. I know you miss the vino but it's okay you can still eat the chocolate and cheese and more chocolate ya know. I so appreciate the hard work you have been doing on a consistent basis for our Texas group. You are busy putting out quality writing and I learn more about you each day. Kiss back to you and Rhett! Later in the rain~Deb
Posted by Deb Brooks (Brooks Prime Properties Wichita Falls Texas) over 12 years ago
Deb my friend, I just wanted to say thank you...all kidding aside, this was very kind and dear of you. I did really need this right now, so your timing was impeccable. You are a very loving person, and I'm glad I have you in my life. Hopefully our friendship will continue to blossom like the wildflowers. Sleep tight, and don't let the bed bugs bite. Hugs, Liz

Debra, my deepest apologies, I can't believe I missed this one, I'll take care of providing my own kick in the pants for doing so.

Excellent ThemThem to 3 awesome ladies. Lissa, Ricki, and Liz are top of the class.

Have a great day in The Rain,

Duane

Deb, I'm so happy and excited for you that you are going to be in the makeover to takeover contest with Melissa...and Josh and I. It's going to be fun and I'm sure we will all learn and grow from our efforts. Night, Liz
