To celebrate Mother’s Day this weekend we interviewed some of our favorite families at The Firm! Topping that list is the amazing Mom and Son duo, Ruth and Corey Isaak. If you know them, you love them! Read their full interview below.
*They say being a mom is the most important job you’ll have, what have you learned from being a mom?
Ruth: It is an amazing gift to be a Mom and that your child, no matter what age, has your heartstrings forever.
* What is the greatest lesson you have learned from our mom?
Corey: Always practice kindness. From the moment anyone sees my mom, they notice her incredible smile. Her smile not only lights up a room, but her gracious, kind spirit pours out. You can can’t help but feel good when my mom is with you. I hear the phrases, “I just LOVE your mom…Is she always that nice…Does she ever not smile all the time?” almost daily. The answer is YES; she is amazing, she is that nice and yes she does smile all the time! I am the luckiest guy to have her as my mom!
* We all know and love Corey, what inspires YOU about your son?
Ruth: Corey has a very big heart and genuinely cares about people. He is a fierce friend and always has your back. I am in awe of how he sets a goal, pours his energy into achieving that goal and then maintains it, no matter how hard that might be. An example is his achievement to be the best personal trainer and life coach possible and also how he personally maintains a healthy lifestyle, mentally and physically. He inspires me everyday!
*What is one thing that inspires YOU about your mom?
Corey: She is always positive, yet realistic and never afraid to share her opinion. My mom has a fierce loyalty to her family which shines through in everything she does. You know Ruth is always in your corner no matter how silly she secretly knows your decision or choice may be. She alway believes in you, supports you and sometimes picks up the pieces and offers love and well-appointed advice.
*What wisdom can you pass on to new mothers about how to be a good mom, AND take care of yourself?
Ruth: As long as your son or daughter knows they have your unconditional love, you don’t have to be perfect or provide everything. Taking time for yourself is critical and contributes to a healthy lifestyle. That is good for you and a gift to your child.
* What is one thing you say out loud and immediately realize it’s a MOM-ism?
Corey: “Is it time for wine?” Mom loves and appreciates just the right amount of good wine. Thank god she passed that along to me!
* If you could do anything together with your family what would it be?
Ruth: We would vacation together in Hawaii!
*If you could do anything together with your family what would it be?
Corey: I’d like to go on a safari with my mom and dad. Life experiences are so precious and we must appreciate every moment we have with our loved ones. So…what do you say Larry and Ruth, safari time?
Thank you Ruth and Corey! Your beautiful relationship inspires us, love you! ❤
