Working from my phone today, and having missed last weeks post due to family business, I’m at a loss for words.
I’m not going to write about Denver’s residential market today. No change to report, but I am excited about what the future will bring.
My father once told me the secret to a complete life was “Something To Do, Something To Love, and Something To Hope For…”. A lot of wisdom in these few words, but at the time I had no reason to believe he wasn’t the source. Turns out, this is biblical.
I can tell you after a lifetime of these words echoing in my head on occasion, Homeownership provides access to all three. Surely a home gives one something to do. I love my home, so how about you? There is no question one’s home provides great hope! Having had the blessing of living in my home for 29 years now, the hope it’s given has been beyond anything I could have believed.
When I’ve felt the world was going “to hell in a hand basket”, there was always my home providing shelter from from the storm! It’s a good life.
I’ve done my best to teach my children and now their children the wisdom of personal responsibility. We always had an expression in our home, “Everything you do affects somebody else”. Apparently, these life lessons have not been passed along throughout this world.
The pendulum swings, and I truly believe we will see the pendulum swing back to more reasonable times. Homeownership encourages families to grow roots, participation in community affairs and responsibility!
I guess we could say, homeownership has its own circle of life…
Last but not least, my father also said, “Be brief and be seated…” If you want to make the world a better place, encourage homeownership!
