Wrapping it all up.

It’s that time of year when the world falls in love.

Those lyrics are from “The Christmas Waltz,” a favorite here in the Godwin household. And it is that time of year, when we all need to pause our mad-dash Christmas shopping, cooking, cleaning and wrapping – to stop for some quiet reflection and appreciation of what is truly important. We have all been given a wonderful gift of life today – a gift filled with a new and exciting promise of tomorrow as well as a remembrance of the times we have spent with friends and loved ones.

It has been an exciting year for us. Diane got to hold a brand-new granddaughter in her arms last January, and in March the corporation I worked for decided it was time for me to venture into a new field. And what a great adventure the estate sale business has been! We have gotten to meet some fascinating clients and learn about their family. We’ve met devoted pickers and resellers that have shared their passions and knowledge.

It is certainly not a glamorous occupation we’ve chosen, too much dirt, dust, heavy lifting, and encounters with the occasional troublesome shopper for that, but we wouldn’t trade a moment of it. Well, on second thought, we could have done without the poisonous snakes!

I have to make special mention of the kindness shown by a couple of our colleagues in the business without who’s advice, encouragement, sympathy and referrals this year would not have been so joyous. Thank you.

Both of us at Honey Stop The Car Estate Sales want to thank all of you that have made this last year so memorable. We look forward to seeing you again in 2015. Until then…

Santa’s on his way,
he’s filled his sleigh with things
Things for you and for me.

It’s that time of year when the world falls in love.

Every song you hear seems to say
“Merry Christmas,
may your New Year’s dreams come true.”

And this song of mine in three-quarter time
Wishes you and yours the same thing too.
