Sorry it’s been awhile…

 I have been swamped lately with travelling, family illness, and business, too (thankfully)!  As a result, I haven’t had a chance to post the Family Ties recap for a couple of weeks.  Thanks for your patience, and to those of you who actually inquired about the review. 

Welcome the weekly recap for the ActiveRain Family Ties group.  YOU ARE CORDIALLY INVITED TO JOIN THE GROUP if you haven’t already done so. 

We increased to 408 members this week.  Please remember that any member of the group can invite others to join. 

Below is a selection of my some of my favorite posts to appear within the group over the past week or so, including some of my own.  If you like any of the posts below, please also consider subscribing to the author’s blog.

If you haven’t joined or even visited the group yet, here is the description that I wrote there to give you some idea of what we are all about:

First question: Is this a fan club for the 80’s sitcom? No. I just wanted to think of something memorable for this group. This is meant to be a fun place to escape the daily drama of the real estate industry. Please feel free to post any family stories or lessons here. We envision this as a great place to share funny stories about kids, marriage, siblings, parenting, or anything family-related. Posts may relate business to family life, or they may be about striking a healthy balance between career and life. Welcome to Family Ties!

So come on over and check it out!  We’re like one big happy family in this great group!  If you aren’t visiting this group, I can assure you are missing out on some terrific writing.  I look forward to seeing you there.  Let me know if you have any questions.  Thanks!
