Mind Your Mom
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, and still is, 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 moms – Happy Mother’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 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 $10,000 for Children’s Hospital of Orange County (CHOC) in 2023. We do that by donating a portion of our income from home sales to this very worthy cause.
Right now, there are kids at CHOC who are trying to beat the Cancer Monster and other nasty debilitating diseases. CHOC is one of the best non-profit hospitals for treating kids, even leading the way in early diagnosis of autism and recovery of spinal cord injury. The moms with kids being treated at CHOC are most likely NOT thinking about their special day this month. They are simply just being “moms” 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, but a very worthy cause will also benefit as well.
Just give me a call or pass on my number. Thank you for giving this some thought.
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 moms at Children's Hospital of Orange County.
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, and 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 your referrals!
