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 Mom’s – Happy Mother’s Day!!
My husband’s Mother’s Birthday is May 23rd which somehow seems to fall close to Mother’s Day each year. So, she gets double the hugs and appropriate accolades every May from her family.
I am fortunate to still have my mom and mother-in-law. But 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 being helped by CMHA.
Not far from where I’m typing this, the Canadian Mental Health Association is having to turn people away. For them and their families, the current situation weighs even more heavily on their minds. They want to be able to practice social distancing and keep their families safe but for now they are praying for help.
We are on a mission to raise $10,000 for CMHA! For over 50 years, CMHA Peel Dufferin supported the well being of people in our community promoting and supporting mental health In addition to providing a variety of programs to support mental health, CMHA also provides addiction services, community development, mental health awareness and addresses the stigma and discrimination surrounding mental illness.
CMHA leads the way in restoring lives one person and one community at a time.
CMHA serves over 21,500 clients annually through a variety of programs including case management, crisis services, brief counseling, addiction medicine clinics, and criminal justice services.
Everyone has ups and downs in their everyday life, but if your mental health is affecting your daily life or getting in the way of your work or relationships, CMHA can help. If you are worried about a friend or family member’s mental health or substance use, CMHA can help!
This year, we are on a mission to raise $10,000 for CMHA. We do this by donating to them a portion of our income from homes we sell.
So, when you or anyone you know buys or sells the place they call home with us, we deliver on our exclusive guarantees and award-winning service AND a very worthy cause benefits as well.
The reason for the headline is because 30 seconds is about all it takes to think about who you know that may be considering buying or selling the place they call home and to give us a call. If it is you, then awesome! If it’s a friend or family member, that’s great too!
