Just about every May, I sit down to write Homeward Bound; I write aboutÂ Momâ€™s Day. And why notâ€¦ it is a very special day for very special people.Â My mom used to tell me, seemingly repeatedly, to do this and do that, not toÂ do this, and not to do that. ALL, I recall, very valuable advice. Looking back on itÂ all these many years later, I can say she was, and still is, a very wise woman.
Time reveals, in fact, just about every caring mother is a wise woman. I canÂ see why we carve out a special day each year to acknowledge moms. So here isÂ a shout-out to all moms â€“ Happy Motherâ€™s Day!
In our home we get to celebrate Mother's Day twice because my beautiful, amazing wife, and partner comes from Sinaloa, Mexico, so we celebrate Mexican Mother's Day too.
Regardless, we can celebrate this Motherâ€™s Day knowing moms both here and no longer here are special in moreÂ ways than we can count.
Especially the moms who are sitting rightÂ now by their childâ€™s hospital bed not too farÂ from where I type thisâ€¦
You may recall my team and I are on a mission to raiseÂ $10,000 for Childrenâ€™s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) inÂ 2023. We do that by donating a portion of our income fromÂ home sales to this very worthy cause.
Right now, there are kids at CHOC who are trying to beat theÂ Cancer Monster and other nasty debilitating diseases.Â CHOC is one of the best non-profit hospitals for treatingÂ kids, even leading the way in early diagnosis of autism andÂ recovery of spinal cord injury. The moms with kids beingÂ treated at CHOC are most likely NOT thinking about theirÂ special day this month. They are simply just being â€œmomsâ€Â doing what a real loving mom does. God bless them for it.

My mom told me to give all I could, noÂ matter what I was doing. Many years later, IÂ get to repeat it here and do all I can to helpÂ you, and your referrals and try and helpÂ Childrenâ€™s Hospital continue their leading-edge care and keep the costs to thoseÂ families to a minimum.
Thank you in advance for your referrals!
