I believe that if you live a good life and are kind to others, you will be repaid in kind. It is called Karma. Others call it fate.
Our moving experience to Las Vegas has been so exceptional, God must be guiding the process. I became friends with Monika McGillicuddy on Twitter before we even thought of selling our house in New Hampshire. She and her husband Jay are exceptional realtors. They used the internet, as well as newspaper ads to market our house. They are kind, friendly people who go out of their way to be helpful. They are exceptional.
In my wildest dreams I would never have guessed that I would find an equally outstanding team in Las Vegas to work with, but it happened. Debbie Drummond and Michael Petit are fantabulous. They are friendly, helpful, caring, and they know real estate. By the end of the first day, we had a property we were going to put a bid on.
The next morning we had breakfast with our online friend Carolyn Stephens. She made a casual comment that she still isn’t used to driving in to town from her new place in the country. Carolyn’s comment refocused our thinking of wanting to be close to the strip. To me, this was a pure case of Karma.
After breakfast, Steve and I went with Michael to look at more houses. The first house we saw that day was WOW! It is beautiful! Close to the strip! Totally rehabbed! It has everything we want. Nice neighborhood. We even met the neighbor next door, a delightful gentlemen. We submitted an offer.
Sunday night we went to see Beatles Love. Our son, Chris, gave us tickets that turned out to be the best seats in the house. Pinch me, life is good. The performance was outstanding. Later that evening and the next morning, Steve and I discussed the show. We decided we needed to return and buy the DVD. The show is so exhilarating.
Monday morning Debbie Drummond called. Ours was one of many bids that was submitted, but hallelujah, ours was the bid that was accepted, even though the seller knows we can not buy until we sell our house in New Hampshire. Thank you Lord for blessing us.
When we went to Debbie’s office to sign the paper work, sitting on her desk was a DVD of Beatles Love. It was just a little gift from her and Michael because we liked the show. Maybe that isn’t Karma. Maybe that is just kindness.
Debbie extended even more kindness by taking me to my favorite dress shop Chico’s where she is also a patron. I mentioned to her that I wanted to buy some gifts for our grandchildren. She mentioned a couple of places and later tweeted me another place that would be an excellent place.
Steve and I know there are still many hurdles to pass, but we both feel peaceful, as if this move is meant to be. I can breathe better. I am walking a lot. I feel good. The temperatures in the 80’s and 90’s are fine. Over 100 degrees, I stay shaded because I burn quickly. Overall, neither Steve or I have had a problem with the heat.
We are thankful for all the wonderful people who have helped make this move possible. It is a big wide wonderful world.
