    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!!
     
    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. ...

    Give Me 30 Seconds and
    We’ll Save a Kid’s Life Together...





    Welcome to the month of April. By the time you are reading this, you will be deep into it. That means I can’t play any April Fool’s jokes on you. I have never been a fan of those anyway. When I was a kid my favorite radio station, 96 Rock in Toronto, announced they were going to be changing formats and playing elevator music and for half the day they did that, only to announce it was a big April Fool’s Joke.
     
    Another BIG deal in April is TAX day! Yep! Deadlines for filing those personal income tax returns. I don’t think most people mind paying taxes as long as they are being put to good use. I think it’s the waste that bothers most citizens.
     
    Both of these days I mentioned above are for sure conversation starters, one full of funny stories, the other maybe not so much, but there are few ...

    Who Cares if the Ground Hog got it right,
    Spring is STILL Coming. I promise.





    Spring is Springing! Yay! I just came inside from shooting a video outside and WOW!  It’s nice out! Yes, I realize that when you get this and read it that it could be cold and rainy, but those cold days are just about over.  Everyone loves Spring, primarily because it means… summer is near!


    For many across this great country though, it’s still COLD, grey, and snowy! One thing is for sure, this winter season is coming to an end.  It does every year without fail.


    Just like the weather seasons come and go, so do the seasons of life.  I just turned 51, my youngest is in college, and my oldest is off figuring out work and life.  Are you with me when I say that these seasons seem to come and go faster and faster as well as the time?  My wife reminded me last night we have s ...

    Happy Valentine's Day
    To You and Yours!




    I was cruelly led to believe when I was young that Valentine’s Day was reserved ONLY for those closest to us—that it was weird to wish strangers or acquaintances a Happy Valentine’s Day. That would be equal to telling them I love them. But aren’t we suppose to love others?


    Of course, I’m bringing up Valentine’s Day because it’s February, the month for Valentines, and it’s a BIG deal… bigger than just flowers or dinner with that special someone. I may have shared this story with you before, but when my wife and I were planning our wedding back in 1979, she suggested we reveal to all in attendance words that would convey our LOVE for each other.  Some of those words included: Love is patient, love is kind, it does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud, it is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is ...

    And the New Year’s Resolution is...


    Round about this time of year most begin to make resolutions.  I think the idea is to resolve to be better, do better or accomplish something grander in the NEW year than in the previous year.  However, for whatever reason most fall short of keeping a resolution let alone achieving it! I for one have been guilty of it. How about you?

    There’s a great book that helped me and my team dramatically improve our follow through on achieving important goals and I want to share it with you – as sort of a Happy New Year After Christmas Gift.

    Before I share the book details, here is my TWO PART resolution to you and anyone you know considering selling the place they call home!




    If you or a friend are thinking about selling, make sure to choose a real estate company you can trust!
    A real estate company with experience,  proven results a ...
