A Month of Thankfulness

November 1, 2019

Message from Agi


Dear Friends,

I am sending prayers to all my friends who are affected by the fires. I am also sending out a collective prayer of gratitude to all our service people who are working hard to keep us safe ~

As we enter the month of November, we will gather with our friends and families to give thanks.  I have many areas of my life filled with gratitude. I regularly remind myself to never take any part of my world for granted.

We have so much fun stuff to share with you in this month’s update. We are having a holiday celebration on Dec. 5th at our office – if you are in town, I hope you can stop by. One of our listings has a feature article written about it on Global Mansion’s website. I am part of a team of advisors marketing a fabulous Luxury Community in Park City, Utah. Finally, if you know me even a little, you know I love to read books. This month I am sharing a recent favorite.

One of my favorite quotes I wrote several years ago, begs to be repeated in this month of Thanksgiving:

Life is a fast-moving train. We live, we love, we work, and we die. Your in-between better be good!

What’s your In-Between?

 Scroll down to see all the fun tidbits and more…

Book Club

This book had a profound impact on me for a multitude of reasons. Dr. Eger, the author, is an Auschwitz survivor who, at the young age of 90, wrote this incredible memoir – this is her first and only book. Her story touched me as she and her family were from Hungary, where the Nazis tore them from their home and forever changed the lives of generations to come. My family, as you may know, is also from Hungary, and my father and his family escaped the Nazis too. Soon after, my parents and their entire families had to liberate themselves from the fate of the Russians invading my motherland. My father was a freedom fighter, and before his final exit from Hungary, he spent time in a Russian prison camp. 

Dr. Eger’s story of suffering, loss, anger, and finally, forgiveness made me reach deep into my heart, where I found a new understanding and appreciation for my heroic parents. Their incredible courage to create a better life for my siblings and I became palpable. They escaped in the middle of the night with the clothes on their backs, fear and sadness in their hearts, and hunger in their bellies. Their fortitude ultimately brought them to the land of the free and home of the brave – America the beautiful. 

Dr. Eger is a shining star that inspires and exemplifies the need to remind ourselves how blessed we are. I would not be surprised if Dr. Eger receives a Pulitzer Prize for this remarkable body of work.
