I haven’t posted on this page in awhile as I have been posting on my Tuesday in Templeton page, but today “Home” seemed to be in my head all day and I wanted to share a moving, yet sad, story with you and how social media is such a powerful tool to bring you closer together as a community. I like to post exactly what’s in my heart and mind and share it with all of you.
I love being a Realtor and it is in every fiber of my being much like eating and breathing to live are. There are many reasons I enjoy being a Realtor and I have shared some of those things with you, but today I profoundly realized another. It’s a community you belong to that lifts you up when things are down, shares ideas and encourages you along, lends an ear and helps to solve problems, give back to their local community and there really is so much more, but the most important thing about our Realtors and our amazing Business Partners is they embrace one another when tragedy strikes and this will always include their family.
Yesterday sad news was tweeted about a man named Clint Miller that he was in the ICU fighting for his life because of cancer. Within minutes ~ and I mean minutes ~ twitter, Facebook and all other sources of social media went out requesting prayer, thoughts, updates on his condition and any other news that could be obtained went out over the internet. New Facebook groups were started, videos sharing what an amazing person he is, photos and a Clint Miller Benefit website designed to help the family in this great time of emotional and financial need ~ ALL IN A DAY! Realtors and partners and twitter friends and many more I don’t even know have rallied together in support of this incredible man. I have never met him, tweeted with him, Facebook friended Clint or been to any event he has spoken at, however, I have read many post of Clint’s and that others have written and what he has done for them and our Realtor and Business Partner community and my heart has been touched by the genuine character Clint Miller is to us and most especially his wife, children and family.
Cancer is a nasty word and I just lost my Uncle to this terrible and heartbreaking disease and the emotional and financial impact this had is just overwhelming so I can certainly sympathize with the Millers. Home is a community in every sense of the word and it does not mean a piece of real estate you live in~it’s where you come together in support of one another. I am blessed, honored and amazed everyday by the community I belong to both here in my hometown, my family and friends and my Realtor and Business Partner “Home”. I am sure Clint and his family and friends are grateful for all the support they are receiving via the tools we have now for instantaneous communication and that prayers are being heard.
I am asking right now for you to say a small prayer for Clint and his family that he will be given the strength to fight this and pull through and that they be lifted up and know we are all there for them. Clint needs to come HOME as this is where he belongs and is needed and home is that safe place where you are loved and cared for.
This song has brought me so much comfort and I hope it will bring that to them also to know God is with them and holding them in the palm of His hand. Clint, we raise you up to be free of this terrible and debilitating disease. We are all thinking positive thoughts for you and you will fight this and know what miracles can be done by the power of prayer.
