It’s hard to believe another Christmas is upon us and we’ll be welcoming a brand new year in mere days. I for one can’t believe how fast 2013 has flown by. If you’re my age, the age of a fine wine, time has gone into warp speed. Each day is filled with life’s busy-ness and we often forget to appreciate what we have around us.
Recently Alcova Mortgage hosted the company holiday party in Roanoke, VA and proudly celebrated the 10th Anniversary of the founding of the company. Alcova has over 25 offices throughout the Mid-Atlantic region, so unfortunately most of us don’t get to deal with each other in person, everything is done by email, phone and computer, the new way of communication. But for this one evening, so many made an effort to be there, in person, to meet, talk, shake hands, even dance and sing together. It was a wonderful evening, all work set aside for a few hours, many of us meeting each other for the first time, and some just catching up. It was like any other family gathering around the holidays, a lot of great conversation and warm laughter, but without the family argument to ruin the day.
So, as you gather with your family and friends over the coming days, take a moment to step back, look around, and appreciate all that you have. The new year will bring new challenges, more busy-ness, and time will once again spin like our electric meters.
From our home to yours, the Alcova Mortgage Family wishes you, your family and friends nothing but good times, good health and good fortune.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
