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 Mom’s – Happy Mother’s Day!!
My son Justin’s Birthday is in late May, and each year we get to celebrate Mother’s Day and then his birthday. So, we get double the hugs and appropriate accolades every May.
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 circumstance. 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 being helped by Plan International Canada
You may recall my team and I are on a mission to raise $10,000 for Plan International Canada in 2020. We do that by donating a portion of our income from home sales to this very worthy cause. Plan Canada does tremendous work in helping kids fight through poverty, improve education and health and survive violence and emergencies across the globe. The Mom’s with kids that are being helped by Plan Canada 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.

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 Plan Canada continue their leading edge care and keep the costs to those families to a minimum. Thank you in advance for your referrals! My number is 416-858-9006

I’ve added the photo again of myself along with my team members proudly holding up a check for $10,000, payable to Plan International Canada. Our Goal last year was $10,000.
Mission accomplished! With the help of our clients, I’m confident we’ll reach our goal of $10,000 again this year.
Over the years of helping many 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.
