Mother Always Said You Should…
My Mom used to tell me repeatedly to do this and do that, not to do this and not to do that, all in an attempt to help and protect me. ALL, I recall, very valuable advice. Looking back on it, 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 Mothers. So here is a shout out to all Moms’ – Happy Mother’s Day!!
As we celebrate moms, I am so grateful to still be able to enjoy my mom. As many of you know, I worked alongside my mom for many years, helping families with their real estate needs. I am grateful for that experience. Unfortunately, My Mom was not so fortunate. Her mom, my grandmother, passed away when my mom she was a very little girl. 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 whose Mom is no longer with us, may you remember the best about them and may that memory stay strong in your heart. Unfortunately, there are also many who never had the opportunity to know their Mom due to unfortunate circumstance. I bet someone stepped up and played that roll in their life and they too deserve a Happy Mother’s Day!
Regardless, we can celebrate this Mother’s Day with love and appreciation knowing Moms both here and no longer here are special in more ways than we can count.
Right now, there are kids who are trying to beat the Cancer Monster and other debilitating diseases at Sick Kids Hospital and those youths at Choices Youth Shelter who are without family and support. The Mom’s with kids fighting for their life 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.
Charitable contributions are tax deductible to a point. Rather than give your money to the government, you should consider making a donation to a charity. I believe it will somehow come back to you, well beyond a simple tax deduction. A core value at the Evelyn Lopes Realty Group is “the size of the hole you give through is directly proportionate to the size of the hole you receive through.”
Life moves fast for some and we are eager to make the Home Selling and Buying experience a smooth and rewarding one. Over the last three decades of helping hundreds of families sell their home and/or buy another, we have met some wonderful, loving, caring people. People like you! So, your referrals, those you know considering a move, that we help – you can rest assured that not only will they get the award-winning service we are known for, but that a solid portion of the income we receive from the transaction will go toward a very worthy cause.
Any one you know considering buying or selling a home, friends, neighbors, associates or family members, call me direct at 905-965-5902 or pass my number on to them. You can also go online at www.EvelynLopesReferralRewards.com and fill out the online response form or pass on the website URL to those who you know considering a move.
My Mom told me to give all I could, no matter what I was doing. Thanks Mom for that bit of advice! Many years later, I get to repeat it here and do all I can to help you, your referrals and try and help both Sick Kids and Choices Youth Shelter in their efforts to support, nurture and heal our children.
Thank you in advance for the referrals!
