“Summertime, and the living is Easy….” – or so the song goes. During this season folks may still be busy at work, however here and there they are also taking some vacation time and enjoying what’s really important in life — time with our families. Ultimately that’s what it’s all about! It’s why we work so hard. It’s why we do what we do – to provide for our families.
I feel incredibly blessed in life to be surrounded by two incredible families. At the forefront, of course, is my own personal family. The Lansing clan now includes our four grown children (Ted, Hunter, Chase, and Lindsay) and their spouses (Joy, Stephanie, Bliss and Dan). I am also thrilled to be the grandfather of some simply amazing kids – Amelia, Theo, Annie, Kate, Hunt, Cooper, and William Christopher (aka “Captain”). And by the end of July we’ll add another! I cannot begin to put into words the amount of joy, love and laughter they each provide to my life. I’m truly blessed and thankful for each and every one of them.
Particularly at this time of the year our family loves gathering together for summer fun. There’s golf, swimming, fireworks, marvelous food, and one of our ultimate favorites – boating on Lake Gaston. There’s just nothing like it, and it’s such a joy to share in it together. That’s the real point – just to be together sharing stories and experiences; building memories to last a lifetime.
Additionally, I am blessed by my LBP family of associates. I am honored and privileged to work alongside the absolute best in our industry. Each associate puts their heart into their work and daily strives to meet the Lansing Mission of respect, service, and excellence. Many of our associates are truly seasoned veterans, having been a part of our team for 20 – 30 years or more. But we are also excited to have new faces continually joining our ranks as well. They bring a fresh outlook and energy, and we are excited to have our LBP family continue to grow and develop.
I hope you have the opportunity this summer to spend some quality time with your family. They’re what’s really important in life — and why we do what we do.
