I remember the last roller coaster I rode. It was in Myrtle Beach in 2003. I picked up my son, the Marine, from his military base and we drove to Myrtle Beach in a rented convertible (top down, of course) for a weekend of fun before his inevitable deployment to Iraq.
The roller coaster looked ancient but we secured ourselves and were confident we would enjoy the experience more than we feared it. The thought occurred to me as I held on for dear life while it climbed and dropped with growing speed, then took hairpin curves with wild abandon, this ride may kill me! Needless to say, it did not.
I thought of that roller coaster ride more than once as I navigated my way through my real estate career in 2009. It was a wild ride, but also a year filled with growth, challenges and enough success and blessings to make me thankful for the ride.
Christmas Eve found me at the office confirming acceptance of an offer. The last week of 2009 will find me opening escrow, conducting inspections and well on the way to creating new business blessings for the New Year. The 2009 real estate ride was worth the ups and downs.
2010? Oh yeah, I'm ready for another great ride.
