What makes a house a home?May 8, 2010
I’m in the business of selling homes and part of that involves the dreams that are an integral part of every home. It’s the dreams of friends, families, husband, wives and our beloved pets. It’s a memory of a life well-lived.
But what makes a house a home? It’s Mom. As we approach Mother’s Day I want to wish everyone a Happy Mother’s day. It’s this day that I remember my Mom, Jean Snyder Parvin who was just wonderful and who made the best meat loaf, spaghetti sauce, banana cream pudding and so much more. Mom was food, warmth, encouragement and security all wrapped up in a lovely package. She was my hero and my friend.
Mom was also a warrior who protected her children her entire life. In the end, breast cancer was our enemy but Mom faced it with grace and dignity and without complaint. My Mom was a shining example to her children and her husband.
So Happy Mother’s Day and God Bless you Mom – we miss you! Your memory still warms our hearts.
