Just about every May I sit down to write Homeward Bound, I write about Mom’s Day. And why not… it is a very special day for very special people.
My Mom used to tell me, seemingly repeatedly, to do this and do that, not to do this and not to do that. ALL, I recall, very valuable advice. Looking back on it all these many years later, I can say she was a very wise woman.
Time reveals, in fact, just about every caring Mother is a Wise Woman. I can see why we carve out a special day each year to acknowledge Moms. So here is a shout out to all Mom’s – Happy Mother’s Day!!
Unfortunately, Mine is no longer here. It makes me sad this time of year. I am sure some reading this can relate and have similar stories. For ALL those whose Mom is no longer with us, may you remember the best about them. In addition to that, there are also many who never knew their Mom due to unfortunate circumstance. I bet someone played that roll in their life and they too deserve a Happy Mother’s Day!
Regardless, we can celebrate this Mother’s Day knowing Moms both here and no longer here are special in more ways than we can count.
Especially the Moms who are sitting right now by their Child’s hospital bed not too far from where I type this…
You may recall my team and I are on a mission to raise $25,000 for Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles (CHLA) in 2019. We do that by donating a portion of our income from home sales to this very worthy cause.
Right now, there are kids at CHLA who are trying to beat the Cancer Monster and other nasty debilitating diseases. Children’s is one of the best non-profit hospitals at treating kids, even leading the way in early diagnosis of autism and recovery of spinal cord injury. The Mom’s with kids being treated at Children’s are most likely NOT thinking about their special day this month. They are simply just being “Mom” doing what a real loving Mom does. God bless them for it.
Your referrals help the kids…
You may know someone considering buying or selling a home. If so, please refer them to our team. Not only will they benefit from our award winning service, a very worthy cause will benefit as well.
Just give me a call or pass on my number. Thank you for giving this some though.
A core value at our company is “the size of the hole you give through is directly proportionate to the size of the hole you receive through.”
As part of our Go Serve Big Mission, we proudly give back to those in our community who need help the most. In this case, the amazing kids with amazing Mom’s at Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles.
My Mom told me to give all I could, no matter what I was doing. Many years later, I get to repeat it here and do all I can to help you, your referrals and try and help Children’s Hospital continue their leading edge care and keep the costs to those families to a minimum.
Thank you in advance for the referrals
Go Serve Big!!!
