    my mom costantly puts other before herself…she is the most generous person I know. Her talent is amazing and she is beautiful from the inside out (

  2. Stacy Pietrocini says:

    I’m a lucky girl to have the mother I have. Not only was she the most dedicated mother, she put up with me :), raised me right, and now she gets to be an even better Granny to my kiddos! (if that’s even possible!) I’m thankful for her love, kindness and encouragement to never settle for anything less than my personal best!

  3. Kim Fleming says:

    My “mother” was my Daddy! He was beyond his years at being “cool” he could braid my hair, make the best chocolate milkshakes, make sure we new what discipline was and most of all instilled us with Christian faith. In today’s world he would be a super Dad but back then he was just doing what he thought was the right thing to do! And thanks to you all too. It is so cool to see “regular” Moms doing wonderful things for their kids and leaving small hints for others too! Thanks.

  4. Colleen D'Allaird says:

    My mom will forever be my role model as a woman and a mother. She taught me the power of using intellect, humor, hard work and strong morals to be a good person. I hope to instill these values in my three sons so they will grow to be good men to the women in their lives.

  5. rachel says:

    Having a strong faith and knowing that she can’t do it all!

  6. Her Strength, faith, humbleness, and wisdom, it is just so admirable, I love her♥

  7. Stacey Harting says:

    My mother is the perfect example of selfless-ness! My whole life she has always put the needs of others before herself. She is a perfect example of what is to be humble and kind. I’m so thankful that I have her as my mother.

  8. Heather says:

    I’m very lucky to have my mom as one of my biggest supporters. Although our dreams & aspirations are very different (I’d like to be in a different country every month if I could, and she would rather stay on this continent) she is always 100% behind my crazy ideas. If not for the love, support and encouragement of my mom, I don’t think I would have had the courage and strength to do half of the things I’ve done in my life.

  9. Renee K says:

    My mom is my inspiration. Her creativeness has worn off on me and she is always supporting anything that I want to try. It is her voice that I hear when I want to try something new and question if it’s a good choice. She is amazingly talented, loving, supportive and caring. I want to be just like her and hope that my daughter feels this way about me as she continues to grow into her own person!

  10. Tiffany Mcintosh says:

    I just want to say that I love my mom but tonight I want to say how much I appreciate my husband’s mom! I am thankful for her protecting him and nurturing him while he was young and working multiple jobs to provide for him as a single mom. Your dedication to your son made him the man he is today! He is a man of his word, loyal, supportive and a beautiful example of what you taught him from a early age! Even though I am his wife and true love, you will always be his first love & driving force in his life! I love you!!!!
