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!!
Unfortunately, My Mom is no longer here. That makes me very 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 praying right now for their son or daughter experiencing homelessness not too far from where I type this…
You may recall my team and I are on a mission to raise $10,000 for Partners in Housing Solutions (PIHS) in 2020. We do that by donating a portion of our income from home sales to this very worthy cause.
Right now, there are homeless people on the streets trying to beat the Homelessness Monster and other nasty conditions such as drug addiction and debilitating traumas. PIHS is one of the best non-profit organizations at helping homeless to obtain and maintain permanent housing.
The Moms with their sons or daughters sleeping on the streets 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 Homeless…
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 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 homeless people in Santa Barbara 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, your referrals and help Partners in Housing Solutions continue their leading edge work.
