My Life as a Realtor – Day 145

My Life as a Realtor ~

Day 145:

Yesterday, after Christmas shopping ALL DAY… I came home and wrapped gifts for about 4 hours!  What kept me going, was watching – It’s a Wonderful Life – Oh how I LOVE this movie.

Today, no appointments, so I did some work – then my mom and I went to Wal-Mart in Danbury, CT.  Found a few more gifts for my grab bags, an X-Box video game for Jonathan and took advantage of Wal-Marts great prices for some needed everyday items.

To appreciate all that you have in these difficult times, my suggestion to you is to watch – It’s a Wonderful Life…

If you have never watched this touching movie, please do not view this next video – it is of the end, my favorite part and I wouldn’t want to spoil the ending for you…

As I get older, the meaning of life grows deeper and every year, watching the end of “It’s a Wonderful Life”, makes me cry my eyes out more and more!  I hope you have a tissue box nearby.

It’s a Wonderful Life – at Home

Oh, Thanksgiving has come and gone – but the Holidays do continue.  New Fairfield – Connecticut – has decorated the center of town and they will be having their TREE LIGHTING CEREMONY on Sunday, December 7th at 4pm on Memorial Field.  I do Love this time of the year.  Seeing the lights and holiday decorations takes me back in time to when I was a child and Christmas was my favorite time of the year!

Now as an adult, I admit that I do get a bit stressed – between deciding what to buy for who, getting and decorating the tree, sending out cards, baking, wrapping, trying ever so hard to keep many gifts a secret – which can be difficult for me, and preparing for Christmas Eve at my house… Whew!  I do love – and need to take a break – with my laptop in hand so that I can keep working, I LOVE watching Holiday movies. 


The HALLMARK CHANNEL has begun their Holiday shows and they do a great job at pulling on my heart strings.


Another all time favorite of mine – and a tradition – is watching, “IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE”.   Starring James Stewart and Donna Reed.  This 1946 movie made #4 of Moviefone’s list of 25 “Flicks That’ll Lift Your Spirits” as it prompts, then answers the question of what would happen if a whole life was erased as if it had never been lived??

It snowed yesterday, making it a perfect time to make some hot cocoa, light a fire, and pop in a great movie!
