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!!
My Mother will be turning 92 this year!! So, as you can imagine every year is more special so she gets double hugs and accolades from my brother and sisters. (see inside for details)
Remember the best about them
Unfortunately, My Mom’s Mom is no longer here. I am sure that makes her 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 circumstances. I bet someone played that role 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 $20,000 for Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital of St. Petersburg in 2021. We do that by donating a portion of our income from home sales to this very worthy cause.
Right now, there are kids at Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital 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 moms 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.

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 your referrals!

We were excited to accomplish our mission last year to donate $20,000 to the Johns Hopkins All Children’s Hospital in St. Petersburg. With the help of our clients, I'm confident we will make our big goal of $20,000 this year again.
Over the decades of helping hundreds of families sell or buy the place they call home, we have met so many wonderful, loving, caring people. We are so grateful.
Thank you for reading over this month’s Homeward Bound and thank you for referring anyone you know considering buying or selling to my team. They will be in good hands and a very worthy cause will benefit as well.
Go Serve Big!!!
