Leave a comment

Your “Tell Us Why Your Mom’s the Best” entries had us in tears – thank you for sharing your amazing stories! It wasn’t easy – but after much voting and deliberation we have come up with a winner. Thank you to Amber Sloat for your Mother’s Day contest entry – your mother will be receiving our Alex and Ani and dinner on the town gift package!

  • Here’s a short excerpt from Amber’s entry: “My mother is not only the best mother but she has also been the best father to myself and my siblings.  My father passed away when I was very young and my mother became both the mother and father to all of us.  People always asked me if it was hard to grow up without a father and my answer was always no, I had an amazing mother to make up for it.”

And we just have to share a quick sample of some of the amazing entries we received… and wish you all a very Happy Mother’s Day!

  • “My mother-in-law gave  birth 60 years ago to the most wonderful boy. He grew up to be the most wondrous man. She is a woman who truly “is the best” as she gave me the gift of having a perfect love, children and family. You went home to be with the Lord last week but I am sure you will get the message.”
  • “How often do you hear someone rave that their mother-in-law is amazing and wonderful? She consistently gives so much of her time and energy to improving the lives of those around her.”
  • “It is not easy to describe one of the most influential individuals in my life, but my mother is the reason I am who I am today.”
  • “My favorite ‘little’ thing about my mom is that she will always be the first person to tell me how proud she is, and the first person to make me laugh when I’m upset.”
  • “I remember, Mom, the many times I cried, but you have always told me to hold my head up high. And ‘Don’t give up!’ you would always say, ‘because God has blessed me with another day!’”
  • “My Mom was a promise from God.  She made me laugh, made me cry, wiped my tears, saw me fail, saw me succeed, hugged me tight and kept me going strong for the person I am today.  She was a friend forever and now she is in heaven watching over me.”
  • “She’s the kindest, most loving person I have ever met and I don’t know what I would do without her.”
  • “My Mom used her nursing skills to care for my Dad when he was dying, she refused to take him out of our home.  I hope to someday repay her the same way. I have her to thank for my beliefs, hard working attitude and my education.  Her encouragement and strong love has made me the person I am today!”
