The long holiday weekend wrapped up beautifully for my family and we are happily back to our normal routine this morning. I have two houses closing this week and am not anticipating any problems.
Anyway, one of the activities we took part in this weekend was a trip to the Dobson Ranch Library Park. It was kind of an impromptu thing, but it ended up being perfect timing because not only was the weather stunning, but a group of men were racing their sailboats on the water next to the park.
We sat in the grass with the warm sun on our backs and watched as they placed their boats in the water and then took practice runs around the course. Finally, it was time to start and they all lined up at the starting point. As soon as someone signaled the start of the race, the breeze that had been blowing consistently all morning stilled and the boats sat motionless in the water. It was one of those moments that felt like such a metaphor for life: GET READY, GET SET… everyone just sit and wait. But shortly the wind picked back up and the boats began their race. It just goes to show, it doesn’t matter how hard you try, somethings just can’t be planned for or avoided and you have to wait them out. Such is the life of anyone involved in real estate, I’ve come to learn. In the end it doesn’t matter. Everything still happens, just at it’s own speed.
