At this time of year, we sit back and tell people what we are thankful for. I was thinking of a twist, and I wanted to let you all know what I am not thankful for, but that would be politically incorrect, especially today. This year has been challenging in the mortgage industry, and I am grateful to all of you who supported Augusta Financial this year. We will make it through with our first loss in 27 years of business, but I plan on being around for a long time, and this year did not deter our passion for helping families. I am also thankful to my family, especially my four daughters, who were my driving force and why for so many years. I am thankful that two daughters are almost off the payroll, and the other two are almost done with school too! I am thankful that my brain works towards investments rather than cars and toys. Otherwise, this would have been a stressful year! I am thankful for all my friends who have helped me through this year, kept my spirits up, and kept me in the right mind. I am also thankful to my Augusta Family, who has struggled through the year as we lost so many family members as we slowed down. I appreciate that so many of you stayed on and fought the fight with me.

I look forward to a nice turnaround in 2023, and we can bring back some of the old family members! Lastly, I am thankful to those who read my updates, and I am even more thankful to the ones that make nice comments, as it motivates me! Keep your heads up for those who struggled this year, as I know your hard work will pay off soon.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving, and please reach out and let me know if you need anything! I will be available all weekend, and I look forward to closing out 2022 strong. I am getting excited about 2023, and I hope you are ready because I know I will be!
