Thankful, Grateful, and Blessed on Topsail Island

As Thanksgiving approaches, we are reminded how thankful, grateful, and blessed we are.  Today’s blog post reminds us all to take a moment to reflect on all the reasons for giving thanks and allows us to say “thank you” to all the people and families that we’ve been able to serve over the past three decades.

Let Me Count The Ways

By Scott Franko, Marketing Director

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.

First penned in 1850 as the 43rd of 44 love sonnets by poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning, those two lines are a fitting lead-in for my featured topic—being thankful, grateful, and blessed.

Let’s define “thee” for a moment. For this particular blog post, “thee” represents the people, places, events, and things that are important. And for me, Topsail Island encompasses all four.

If you are reading this, then the odds are that you have a connection to the island as well, and you know how special a place it is. So, for the next few moments, with Topsail as my thee, I shall count the ways.

As one who first vacationed and now lives on Topsail, I love my island and all it provides; sunshine, water, life above and below the sea, solitude or company depending on the day, rest, relaxation, time with my creator, making memories with family and friends, treasures along the shores, toes in the sand, wind-blown hair, friendly people, and the variety of shops, restaurants and businesses that make the Topsail communities.

The Beauty of Topsail Island

As one working for company providing real estate, rentals, and vacation services both on and off the island (with next year being our 30th), I am thankful, grateful, and blessed to work with a truly talented, trusted, caring and expert group of people who also love Topsail, and love helping people.

Owning a home on Topsail or close to it does something on the inside that expresses itself through a salt life attitude island demeanor. I moved here from the Midwest. I’ve experienced this transformation.

Vacations on Topsail are unique. All the sudden my island has become your island. You feel as though you own a piece of the beach, even if just for a short time. Worries are left elsewhere as you can just enjoy each moment, each sunrise, each sunset.

What is your thee? Take a moment to think about the ones in your life, then count the ways. Give thanks and praise for them. And if you could, please include Topsail.

In summary, I’ll borrow some of the words from the song I’m Blessed written and sung by Charlie Wilson, a song about simply living a blessed life …

Ask me how I’m doing, I’m blessed, yes
Living every moment, no regrets
Smile up on my face, I’m like oh yes
I’m blessed yes, I’m blessed yes
Ask me how I’m doing, I’m blessed yes
Living every moment no regrets
Smile up on my face, I’m like oh yes
I’m blessed yes, I’m blessed yes, I’m blessed
