Like most of the world, this month is a shopping month for Christmas and Hanukkah. But in Panama, it is also for Mom! Tomorrow is Mothers Day and that is probably the biggest gift-giving day of the year other than the first two religious holidays. As I write, the streets are packed with semi-hysterical men rushing to get their gifts bought! Whatever, it is a big day and a national holiday as well. So it may be busy today, but the streets will be quiet tomorrow. My mother has passed on, so I am just as happy to see the lines of cars without having to join them.
We were told a month ago that this could be a dry "wet season", then the rains came. A few days ago, they told us the rains would be heavy. Today, the sun shines, laughing at us silly humans! For the sake of Mother's Day shoppers, I am thankful for that.
I put up a new video at my YouTube Channel on our Metro Match program and I am already getting interest. I think there is a genuine need to help people with limited budgets get the homes they want, so that interest is my "gift" this year and it's a great one!
