My mother is my comfort! At 26, we still hold hands. She is a source of strength that makes life manageable. I am blessed to call her mother.

Leiann said...

I love my mom so much! I have put her through a lot and she still loves me back! The perfect mom. She's like my best friend!

GreerAnn said...

I hope I can be half the mother to my daughter that my mother is and has been to me. She is one of the best people I know.

tarynn said...

Imagine never having to shop for a dress again... even a wedding dress! That's my mom- the most amazing seamstress ever!

Leslie said...

I love my mom! She does so much for me and my family...I don't know what I would do without her!

Love ya Mom!

Oh how wonderful!
My Mother's 40th anniversay is today and my son's 12th birthday is today too. Twelve years ago it was such a joy to celebrate both their anniversary and the birth of our firstborn. It seems like yesterday...oh how time flies!

Happy Mom's day to all!

my mom....well we have had a difficult past...now, I am so thankful she is in my life and the lives of my children :)

Julie said...

My mom is the bestest ever! I love her so much!

MCH PHOTOGRAPHY said...

I'd love to win this. Mother's day is always special to me. Especially now since I am a mother. My mom is actually my step-mom. My real mom gave up custody of my brother and I. I was 12 when I went to live with my Dad and her. And I am thankful for her everyday!

Kellie said...

My mom is the most humble, quiet, giving woman I know. Gives much to others, but doesn't do much for herself - I'd love to give her one of these!!!!

Nicole-Lynn said...

My mom has been through a lot this year, she's been strong though. :) Looking forward to spending Mother's Day with her.

Madelyne said...

My mom is wonderful. I miss her a lot because we live in different states, but it's always great to see her (which I get to do this weekend!!!) I consider her just about the best mom one could have :)

slinmn said...

Sadly, my mom passed away when I was just 16. Not a day goes by when I don't think about her, particularly now that I am a mom. I often wish I could ask her 'did I do that when I was four' or 'what did you do when this happened'. I'm okay knowing that she is always with me and I talk about her often to my kids so they will know a little about what she was like. They know she loved the naked feet of a baby/child and the soft feeling of their skin. When I lightly rub/tickle my son's back after turning out the lights, he knows that Grama Tomye used to do that do me when I was little. My daughter resembles her a bit too. I pulled out a toddler photo of my mom last weekend and had the kids guess who it was... they guessed it was my little McKenzie. I feel so fulfilled being a mom and I just have to trust that she felt the same way since I can't ever know for sure.

The Gava Family said...

My mom is wonderful. She is incredibly supportive and inspiring. I am so fortunate to have her.

Sydney said...

My mom is one of my closets friends, she gives me strength, support, and when I need it - a good reality check ;) She watches our son for us so that my husband and I can work which is not only a huge help finacially, but most importantly, my son is able to spend time w/ one of the most wonderful and giving women I know. I love you Mom!

Happy Early Mother's Day to all you Moms out there :)

Ashley said...

I have the most amazing mother. She always put her daughters before herself. She raised my sister and me mostly by herself and I so appreciate all the sacrifices she made for us. I try so hard to be half the mom she was to me to my daughter.

Carrie said...

My mother is an amazing woman. I am the youngest of her 6 children. She was ready to be done after 4, but my father said, "Let's have one more." Little did they know I would come with a twin brother.. :) My mother stayed home with the kids until my twin and I were in 2nd grade. She then started to work at our elementary so she would have the same schedule as us. I'm 20 years old now, and she still works there in the library and loves devoting her time to that environment. I have a loving boyfriend of 2 years, but even he knows my mother is my best friend. When I've had a hard day, a great day, or just something I'm excited about, she's my go-to person to call. I don't get to see her as often as I would like with being moved out, going to school, and working full time- but I hope when I do see her, she knows I love every minute. She's raised me to be loving and respectful and smart in my choices. I love my mother and I hope to show her just how much on this Mother's Day- the 20th I will have had with her.

Cheri said...

My mom is in CA and we're in MN--don't get to see her often enough, but she's always there for me and my kiddos, no matter how far away she is.

Hillcrest Acres said...

I love my Mom. The older and wiser I get, the more I realize how much my Mom did for me growing up. She is the most unselfish person I know.

Jerms said...

My mom is the best! She raised my 2 brothers and I by herself after my dad died. She was actually pregnant with me when he died (that was 32 years ago) and she didn't even realize it so he never knew I existed! She also took care of both of her aging parents. She IS strength to me! Sad thing is, she doesn't even realize it! I love her more than she'll ever know! Happy (early) Mother's Day!

Meg said...

we opened a play this week, and i'm in it. in the play, i bring my cat onstage (on a harness & leash)...on opening night both my parents came, sat in the front row. and my mother was calling to the cat, trying to get her to go sit on her lap. oh, mom.

Kate said...

my mom patiently waited to have kids for 9 years! my parents wanted to have kids so they planned to adopt, but God had other plans for them...over the next 4 years God finally blessed her with me, my brother and sister.

my parents have always had a heart for helping others and decided to become foster parents. one day they called my mom and asked which one of 3 brothers she would like to take...my mom could not dream of splitting them up and took all three. my mom stayed at home during the day and worked some nights to take care of 6 kids (all under the age of 7) for 3 years until the boys were adopted.

my parents, now "empty nesters," helped each one of us grow up into who we are today. every day it is a blessing to know how much they did for us.

ps. sorry this is so wordy!

Mommyofone said...

My best friend. My angel. I only hope I'm half the mother she was to me.

C said...

My mom is completely AMAZING! I love having her as my role model as I become a mom myself. My daughter and her have the best relationship. I am so blessed to have the mother that I have. I wish everyone could experience her love and kindness :0) OK off to blog to earn an extra entry!

Jacki said...

My Mom pretty much rocks. She just returned from a two-week trip to Mexico to provide free medical services to the people in an extremely impoverished community. She and my Dad are a happily married couple of 30 years and are some of the greatest people I know! I'd love to give her a special Mother's Day gift with my sisters' and my names on it, especially since we're all "grown up" and scattered now.

just me and z said...

Yippee!! Thank you so much for the chance to win! I received my order this week and LOVED the necklaces that were made. I would love to win gift certificates to make my grandmothers necklaces for mothers day!!!
Thank you for making beautiful jewelry!

Jenifer said...

I ♥ my momma! God has blessed me immensely with one that supports me, encourages me and loves me and my siblings (all 10 of us!) so much! She is an example to me of what a godly wife and mother should be. She also makes a fantastic Name aka grandma to 6 little blessings already. Love you Momma!

Kate said...

I would love to win a gift certificate for my mom! A mom of four girls, she definitely deserves a little "me treatment"!

just me and z said...

I added it to my blog, too! justmeandz.blogspot.com! :)

haagx5 said...

my mom is the BEST! i've already ordered her one of your awesome necklaces for mom's day, can't wait to see how it turns out. happy weekend to you & the fam!

MicheyMoo said...

My mum is probably one of the people on the planet who knows me best and loves me despite this. :)
We've had our ups n downs (like all, I think) but I love her dearly. Her health is at best, precarious, these days and I get to see her every second day when I pick her up and bring her to the hospital for treatment. I'm valuing each and every day I get to spend with her now as I know that they are numbered and the final number could happen upon us at any time.

Enjoy your weekend with your family Erin, and I will with mine too. xx

Amanda said...

My mom is my best friend! I swear I much drive her nuts because I call her EVERY SINGLE DAY. =) She rocks!

Helen Amanda said...

My mom is an amazing woman and a source of strength for me as I make my own foray into motherhood. I hope that, when my children are grown, they think as highly of me as I do of her

Rachel said...

My mom is the most Godly woman I know - she keeps it real and loves Jesus - and has taught all three of her daughters to do the same.

Tweeted @rachelshaver

Great contest! Love your stuff!

Happy early Mother's Day to you!

rachel e. said...

My mom is the best! She's driving to and from Michigan with me tomorrow (we live in Ohio) just to keep me company in the car.

Julie said...

I am probably sharing a little too much information on your blog, but I couldn't pass up an opportunity to share about my MOM. My mother is a recovering drug addict who almost lost her life to the evil demons of drugs. I have 3 beautiful little girls who love her dearly and who she lives for today. My MOM lives in California has not been able to see them in nearly 4 years. We Skype and they talk to her on the phone often. My youngest daughter who is 4 1/2 hasn't officially met my mother because the last time my MOM saw her she was only 3 months old. Funny thing however, is that out of all 3 of my girls, she is the one who talks about "Nana" the most and who will often out of the clear blue sky say "I miss Nana so much!" (It brings a smile to my face just thinking about it now).

So there you have it. My MOM is truly the greatest mother in the world and I wish with everything within me that I could give her the biggest hug this Mother's Day.

Eva's Grandma Robinson said...

My mom is amazing. She can do really hard things with grace and humor. I count myself very, very lucky to be her daughter.

Kyle and Darci said...

My Mom is one of the strongest women I know. She is hard working and very caring!

I love my Mom. She is the absolute best! She's my best friend, my adviser, my help, my encourager, and so much more. I adore her. And thank God for her.

I talk to my mom almost everyday even though we live hours away - she is the best!

I love that when I turn 35 this Sunday that my mom will be there to celebrate with me.

I am blessed to have her in my life every day, she's a survivor, a superhero, and my number one fan!

Becca said...

My mom has multiple sclerosis. And she still works full time. Really hard. She's the strongest woman I know.

kristen said...

my mom is amazing! she goes above and beyond to take care of our family! i love that lady! :)

Gerb said...

Does a shout-out for my awesome mother-in-law count? She is the mother of a very large family but had no problems accepting each of us in-laws into the family and loving us just as much as her own children. I am blessed to have TWO amazing mothers!

Shannon said...

My mother has always been great, but it's been really touching to watch her with her new granddaughter. She helps me out by watching her twice a week while I work, and it's been great for Mia to spend so much time with her!

Miranda said...

After raising 8 children, it's amazing to see the grace, beauty, sanity, and love that still flows through my step-mom. While she may have not literally given me life, she has been my mother in every other sense of the word. I love her and thank her very much for choosing to be my mom.

Trish said...

I know all kids say that their mom is their hero but for me it SO true.
My mom lost her father to cancer, her mother to emphazima and my dad in a car crash all within 3 years of eachother. But in spite of the tradgity she continued on with style & grace to raise me and my brother. She is truely an amazing mom and always led me in her example of totally trusting in the Lord.
She is now remarried and is a wonderful "Mimi" to 9 grandchildren.
My mom has truely showed me that no matter what you are delt in life, God will NEVER leave or forsake you.

dak8401 said...

I love my mom very much. Even more so now that I'm a mom also.

My mother ??
I can not go a day without calling my mom what always amazes my friends and colleagues
Her opinion is very important for me..
With 3 words : "I love her"

Kim said...

Mother's Day is hard for me. I have conflicted feelings about it. My mother passed away on December 21, 2001 from complications with Type 2 Diabetes. She was only 53 years old. I miss her so very much. There is so much that I wish she could see.
This year will be my daughter's first Mother's Day and I am hoping to make it very special. Her journey to motherhood has been very difficult. The father denied to be involved, she had morning sickness for 5 months, developed toxemia, and now poor thing has the baby blues. I would so love a gift certificate to help make Mother's Day special this year!

My Mom is AwEsOmE! We are best friends! I dont know what I would do without her!

Ms.Kristi said...

You know when someone says something kind and heart lifting and you can tell they really mean it? That's my mom. My mother has given me kind words that have stuck with me throughout my life and at times even reminded me of who I am.

Kim said...

There isn't a day that goes by that I don't talk to my mom, whether it's a phone call or just a simple text to see how her day is going. I LOVE U MOM!!!

Sydnoodle said...

Sadly my mother passed away when I was young. Mother's Day would be hard for me if it wasn't for my two wonderful children. So now Mother's Day is all about ME!

Susan said...

i love my momma! she just finished her doctorate and we are all soooo proud of her. a vintage pearl necklace would be the PERFECT gift :)

Jenn Miyamoto said...

My mom is visiting me now, so this is perfect! I depend on her encouragement! And I love that she's always there to give it!

So sweet of you to do so many giveaways Erin! :-)

My Mom is my friend... growing up, that wasn't the case, but it is now. I live 1,300 miles away from her and miss her a lot.

Peterson Family said...

I lost my mom 17 years ago today. Not a single day goes by that I don't think of her. I wish she was here to see my beautiful children grow up. I wish she was here for all the big things and all the small things too. I wrote a blog post about her today and posted a pic of her. She was movie star beautiful!

My mom is my best friend and always encouraging! I love her

Jessica said...

My mom is really far away right now serving a mission for our church in Samoa. I'm living in and taking care of her house and really missing her. It's funny how even though you think you appreciate someone, sometimes it takes them being really far away to realize all the little things they do for you. Things like hold your baby, give constant words of encouragement, tell you you're a good mom even when you think you're failing miserably. I really miss having her around but it's the little things that I miss the most. Other than my husband she's the first person I want to talk to, cry with, laugh with. Luckily our separation is only temporary!

Chelsea said...

My mom and I have always had a good relationship, but since I've had kids I rely on her more than I ever have before. She is my first resource for parenting, marriage, and even cooking advice. I am so thankful for her.

Sara said...

My mom is the real deal. She's the epitome of a mom and woman. If I can be half the woman she is when I grow up, I will be something great.

Rikki said...

my mom is the most generous, helpful, and loving mom there is! i just hope i can be the same kind of mom to my own kids as they grow!

Shari said...

My momma is recovering from her 3rd hip replacement. She is a very strong lady.

Oh, my mom is fabulous!! We talk several times a day and I really couldn't imagine life without her!!

Laura Hall said...

Putting into words what my mother means to me is a difficult task. She is my rock, she knows me more than I know myself, she loves me despite my many faults, and she is ultimately my best friend. I love her more than I can express. Pick me so I can give her something she will treasure forever!

musicjunkie said...

As a teen I fought my mother tooth and nail! If she said black, I said white. I must've given her half of the gray hairs on her head. Once I moved out on my own I realized I missed her, her advice, her home remedies and the stories she shared from her past. She's been my best friend ever since, well, she always was, but it was then that I finally realized it.
Living half way across the country from where she is has given me a much greater appreciation for her and the person she is and the person she has helped me become. I can't wait until we live in the same state again!

Jenna said...

kaydensgracedesigns said...

I actually have 2 Moms!

My "Mom" is my best friend. A comfot, fun, and the best Grandma ever~

My Step-Mom is also a blessing in my life. She is always there for us and what a gift to have double the love, support, Momma's, Grandma's, and most importantly friendships!

I think I would be selfish this year and keep it if I won though. I went in for a reversal 2 weeks ago and woke up to find they ended up doing a hysterectomy instead. I would LOVE an Erin special to count my 2 blessings I was able to have. I can blame my selfishness on hormones right!? Ha!
Ok, I am going to blog now for an extra entry.

Krystal said...

My mom is truly my best friend. She worked hard to raise me to be a strong woman with a mind of my own, a compassionate heart, and the ability to do anything I decide to do. She, herself, embodies those qualities, as well. She is amazing.

{Anne} said...

I owe the person that I am to my mom! She is the sweetest person I have ever met. I was so blessed to have been sent to her! I love her beyond words and am so grateful she is my mom forever.
She would LOVE a necklace for Mother's Day!
Here's to hoping and praying I win!!!! Thank you so much for the chance.
Have a great weekend!

agibson60657 said...

my mom is a rock - my father passed away when they were 40 (and I was only 8) and she raised me and my brother on her own from then on. I'm nearing 40 myself now and can't imagine how she did it. she's an inspiration.

Kara said...

She holds all the answers, and she taught me how to be a mom. I will be forever grateful for her wisdom and love.

Candace said...

Love my mother so much! She is such and inspiration and a strong spirit. I hope my son learns from her example. Im so blessed to know her and lucky to call her "mom"!

My mom is wonderful! When I needed her the most, she was there to come pick me up, hug me, and pour me a big glass of wine. I can't imagine the mess I would be without her!

--Amie-- said...

My mom is my best friend!! Growing up we didn't always get along that great, but now, I couldn't live without her!! She helped me through a difficult time right after Audrie was born, and we didn't know if she was going to live or not! If I wouldn't have had her, I don't know if I could have done it!! I love you Mom!!! Thanks for everything!! :)

Abby said...

The best thing about our new house is that it is only 6 minutes from my mom! She is always there for me whether I need advice or a sanity break. She is patient, wise, understanding and HILARIOUS! I hope I can be half the mother to my kiddos as she has been to me!

Jessica said...

My mom is fabulous! I actually ordered her a necklace from you with the grandkids names on it. :)

Mrs. Rold said...

My mom rocks my socks... she is the reason my daughter will hopefully say the same thing some day.

Chris said...

My Mom has helped me so much over the years. Lately we have struggled with finances due to our large family and some health struggles my husband (the bread winner) has been battling. My mom is always helping in little (and sometimes big)ways to ease the burden. Picking up some bread and milk for us at the store when she is there, finding bargain clothes and shoes for the kids..so many little things that help us so much! I would love to win a gift certificate so I can get her a wonderful Mother's Day gift!

*Katie May* said...

My mom is always there when I need her rain or shine :) ktcluff@gmail.com

Mandy said...

My real mom is not in my life, so my then mother-in-law stepped in to fill the position. I am now remarried with four kids and she is still the best mom ever! She is there for me and my family for whatever we need. Not only is she a great mom, but a wonderful grandmother and mother-in-law to my husband too. We love her!

Christina said...

I love my mom and was recently just thinking about how I hope I can be there for my daughter the way she is there for me....all the time!

Steph said...

My mom is the most unselfish, giving woman I know and is such an amazing example to me! She is the best! I'm 30 years old and still need my mom like I did as a child. She is such a comfort :)

m3mu said...

My mom and I clashed heavily when I was a teenager. I was horrible to her. :( Even through all that she has remained supportive of me and has loved me through the harshest of words and hardest of times. Now that I'm older, married and going through the struggles of infertility she has become an even bigger supporter and she constantly amazes me. I love my mom so much. :)

Where I Am said...

I love my mom! Wish we lived closer, but we still get to see each other a lot!

Heather said...

My mom is such a strong woman. She has been through so many trials and tribulations over the years and it amazes me everyday! The last few years have been especially hard as she was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, but she continues to fight :)

Wishing every mom out there a Happy Mother's Day, you are all amazing!

Megan said...

I have to most inspiring, supportive, friendly, loving, fun Mother! She is my #1 fan (self-proclaimed by her) and I know I wouldn't be the Mother, Friend, Daughter, Sister, or Individual I am today without her and the example she is to me! I thank God everyday for being blessed with such an amazing woman to call "Mom"!

My mom is simply amazing! Of course, she's always there for us. She's always supportive, never critical of the choices that we each make in our lives. And even when we choose poorly, she's there to help us bounce back. She's my hero, as much as I hope to be for my daughter one day!

Roller Kosturs said...

My mom is amazing - managed to be a SAHM and raise 3 kids, then entered the workforce when we were all in school. She's now an Assoc. Exec. Director and doing well in the business world! But she always finds time to come visit her 2 grandkids...and I am thankful for that!

Ashley said...

My mom is my best friend. We've always been close, but now that I'm a mom I feel like we're even closer. I finally understand the amazing love she has for me.

Amanda and Anthony said...

I never knew how much my mom loved me until I had my daughter. My mom is an amazing woman (and now, grandmother!).

kirsten said...

I'll write this comment about my "other mom" the stepmom who has been with me since I was 7. She is kind, generous, loving, and has always treated me as her own. I love her so much!!

Lori said...

My mom suffers from some major health problems and I feel like they have taken away the mother I know and love. Things are getting better lately but it's still really sad. I'll always remember and cherish the relationship we used to have.

Sarah @ 365 Glimpses of John Parker said...

I have several "mothers". Aren't I lucky?

Jeri Jack Photography said...

Where do I begin with my mom? She really is one of those people who I could easily call my best friend. She is patient and kind and she is always there with loving arms when I need to cry. I am so thankful for my mom, who in the last 3 years, lost her mom to kidney failure. I know that she wants to be the best mother in the world, so she can be just like her mom, my grandma. I love her so much and I am so thankful for her loving example!

Jeri Jack Photography said...

Blogged it! Happily! :]

CurlyGirlD said...

My mother is a wonderful person. Sh's always there for me, being supportive and offering positivity. She also adores my DD more than I could ever have hoped for!

Jessica said...

There are so many good things I could say about my mother... it's hard to wrap it all up into a few sentences. She is kind, hard working, and always provides a listening ear. The best thing is that she introduced me to the Lord and I have a strong relationship with my Messiah because of her... because of this I am eternally grateful. I hope that I am half the mom to my baby girl (soon to arrive in May) that my mom is to me.

My mom is one of the most self-less people that I know. She is regularly going out of her way to help a friend in need, give an encouraging word or offering prayer for those she loves.

My MOM is my HERO!!! She was a single parent my whole life always made sure I knew how much she loved me! I know it wasn't easy raising me by herself and putting my needs first for 18 years
(actually she still tries to put my needs ahead of hers) I am so proud to be her daughter. Not only was my Mom amazing to me growing up, but she is an awesome Nana to my three little ones - she always takes time to spend one on one with each of them and let them know how special they are!

Amanda said...

My mom is wonderful in everyway. she has taught my sister and myself what it truely means to love unconditionally. she has been our support through tough and good moments and each step of the way showed us love and patients. She is my perfect role modle and I know when I have a child I will want to follow in her steps.

Mouq said...

I remember when my Mom arrived when my first son was born. I was amazed that her first goal was to make sure ME, her daughter, was ok. She nurtured me to become a new Mom. She was absolutely thrilled to be a new Grandma but having her take care of me was wonderful! Mother's never stop nourishing their offspring. I love and adore my Mom.

Jessica said...

My Mom is my very best friend and we talk every day! I wouldn't know what to do without her, she always has a solution for my problems and she always listens when I need someone to talk to! I love her very much!!! I'm going to your store now to order her a Mother's Day gift that has all of her grandkid's names on it!

H is for Hillman said...

My mom and I are best friends, if we don't see eachother everyday we talk on the phone everyday. She is an amazing mother and an even more amazing grandmother to my children. I don't know what I would do without my mom, she is always there for me no matter what. She supports me in important decisions, comforts me in hard times and is always there to just laugh or sometimes even cry with me! I just hope my kids will think the same way of me that I do of my mom!

My Mom,....
She always did the best she could even though life was unfair,... Sometimes I felt lonely, but she was always there. As we grew we grew apart which hollowed out both of our hearts. But by the Globy Be we came together, grew and saw eachother,.. not for the fault or the hurt feelings more for the joy and the future of living. Now we are both grown and as quick as that came we both have joy in children that carry our names. For now the future is bright and discretions are left behind I am her friend and she is mine.

i always knew that i had an exceptional mother...but now my kids get to experience what an exceptional grandmother is. if i win, it will be used to purchase her a gift.

the picture of your daughter on the trampoline is adorable.

The Gosfam said...

My mom is the BEST!! For instance I am some personal trials and the first thing out of her mouth was--I am praying for you, and do you need me to come there :) She would do anything for ME. I love my mom and would love to win so i could get her a special mother's day gift.

My Mother is my very best firend! She is always there for all of us and is the best Hama (Grandma)!

Last Mothers day I got her one of your necklaces with all her kids names and I don't think she has taken it off since!:)

Amy Jo said...

I'm 40, my mom is 86.....she is and has been the single most influential person in my life. She's the most gracious and loving servant that I know. I hope that my daughter and I can come close.......

Allyson said...

My mom is there for all of us kids and all 17 grandkids...any time we need her. She's the best.

Erin said...

My mom is always there for me when i need help. I can call her night or day and she will be by my side.

cbk said...

My Mom is awesome - she walks a hard life, never complains and is always there for my sister, my husband and I. I couldn't ask for a better person to look up to!

Elizabeth said...

My mom has been such a blessing this year as I became a single mom and had to deal with those challenges as well as dealing with a divorce. Not sure what I would have done (or would do) without her!

Carisa said...

i love my mom. she's always willing to be there for me and my family. she adores my children & will do anything for them. i love the bond my kids have with her. it's truly special.

mandiegirl said...

My mom pushes me- sometimes further than what I like, but she knows that I need a little extra motivation at times. ;)

Mrs Soup said...

My mom is so amazing. She has never stopped loving me, being a great role-model and paying attention to everything. Yes, we have our issues, like everyone, but I would not change a thing about her.

April O. said...

Well of course I love my Mom; her opinion of me is so biased! :)

~Ivy~ said...

This is a special Mother's Day for me too like so many that have commented.
My mom is having her 1st mother's day since being diagnosed with cancer. Having her here is such a blessing.

I love her so very much.

My mom is my biggest cheerleader. I would love to win this and get her a necklace with the grandkids' names.

Alisha said...

My Mom eats lunch with us one day of every week. I'm so glad she lives near by.

Kedran said...

My mom is not with us anymore, but I think of her everyday - especially when my daughter is acting like me when I was a teenager and I imagine my mom smiling down on me and giving me a wink - you were right Mom!! I do have a very loving and wonderful and beautiful mother-in-law and I feel so blessed that she is in my life.

Camille English said...

My mom loves jewelery and would love something to represent her soon to be 8 grandchildren.

Lindsey said...

my mom is my rock, i was married very young and had a baby at 19 ( by choice) and she has stood by me and never critized me at all...and she is a wonderful nana to my alleigh bug!!!

nightowl said...

My Mom is wonderful. She has always given me unconditional love. What better gift is there than that for a Mom to give her daughter.

the5turners said...

My mother is my best friend, hero, support system, & NEIGHBOR! I never thought I'd enjoy living so close to her as we do. I always knew she'd "always be ther for me" but she has taken that phrase to a whole new level. Thanks mom!

Loving Washington said...

There is so much I can say about my mother. She endured a childhood she made sure wouldn't pass on to my brother or I. Despite mistakes I made, she never stopped loving or praying for me. She welcomed my husband into her family as if he were her own and continues to pray for my family daily, as well as my brother. She is an inspiration and I could only hope to be as half as good a mother as she was and is to me.

Brooke said...

I would love to win this. I lost my mom to cancer 3 years ago. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think about her.

The Cohen's said...

I lost my mom in 2006 to cancer. She never got to meet my babies, but I know that she sees them. She was the BEST mom! I talked to her 3 or more times a day, I could count on her for anything, and she never let me feel unloved. She was strong, dedicated, and amazing. She shaped me into the woman I am today.

joolee said...

My mom has always been a source of strength for me, has always given me confidence and supported me in all that I do. And now I turn to her more than I ever have - with baby #3 on the way and her having had 6 kids, I'm constantly asking for advice! Don't know how she did it...she's an amazing woman, that's for certain!

Brianna said...

My mom is the most amazing woman I have ever known. Raising me and my 3 siblings as a single mom our whole lives and we have accomplished so much because of her! I can't wait to be even a glimpse of the woman she is when I have kids. She is my best friend in the world and is always there for me through the thick and thin.

Rebekah said...

I share my mother with 8 other children, and my dad. So getting quality time with her is almost non-existant. But, I will get to spend six months with her when my husband gets deployed, and I couldn't imagine anyone better to spend that time with! I love my mother and would definitely use this gift certificate on her.

Lisa said...

My Mom is the best! She's a great friend and she always helps me out when I need it (and even sometimes when I don't!). Right now, we're having the best time together planning my wedding!

Amy H. said...

I have been blessed with not just Mom but 2! My Mommy and Step-Mommy are both wonderful influences in my life. Each different and unique.

My mom passed away from ovarian cancer 7 years ago. She taught me so much even up to her final day. I miss her everyday but feel so blessed to have had her in my life.

Jennie said...

My mom is there for me before I even know I need her. She's so good at anticipating ... and she is provides daycare for our daughter, which both saves us a ton of money and allows Maggie to be with someone who loves her. She's awesome!

Lynn said...

My mom worked as a full time as a small town nurse for over 45 years. Blessing the lives of many. I am SO proud of her. But the best part I love about my mom is that she was "mom" first. To all of us (8) kids. She made sure we were where we were suppose to be at all times. She made sure we were WELL fed and well dressed....sewing and cooking meals late into the night, or bright and early in the dawn, for the next day.

We came home after school to find handwritten notes from her with a big crockpot of something she made for us. And she would call us on every single one of her breaks at work.

Yup. We were always FIRST in her mind.

Love my mom.

My mom is a wonderful hardworker who happens to be a young widow. She runs a young widows/ers support group.

Celeste said...

My mommy {yes - I still call her mommy} is the best because we always have the *best time* together...we are more than just mother & daughter -- we are best friends too :) And, she is such a wonderful Christian example, wife, and - of course - mother! :D

Ashley said...

My mom can sew anything, and is best at reupholstering things. She can turn furniture trash into furniture treasure!

Kristen M said...

My mother is the most selfless person I know - always asking "what can I do for YOU" even when I know she is having a hard time with something.

Midwestern Gone Idahoan said...

My mom is the best!!! She grow up with two brothers, so me and my 4 sisters and 2 SIL's are here sister's!! I call her daily - sometimes a few times a day!!!! Love you mom for everything you are to me!!

The McKiernan's said...

I love my mom! She's my best friend and if I ever need anything I know she will be there for me in a drop of a hat. I hope I am half the mom to my kids that she is to me!!

Julie said...

I love talking with my mom and our shared love of sewing.

mel98942 said...

My Mom is my best friend, has been there for me thru happy times and struggles and I can always count on her to be there for me no matter what. I love my Mom!

Mrs. Lopez said...

I have an all-star mom! She is the kind of mom who all of our friends considered a second mom. In fact, she is know widely as Mama Sue, and even has a Facebook fan page of all the people who love Mama Sue! I am one of the three lucky ones who actually get her as a Mom! I hope my new daughter and I have the same kind of relationship my mom and I have!

Heather said...

My mom is always there when I need someone to talk to!

Katie H said...

My mom is truly my best friend. She is always there for me, chats like my best girlfriends, and has taught me to be strong & stand up for what's right. I love her so much!

Crystal said...

One of the things I love most about my mom is our weekly "Ghost Hunters" and "Destination Truth" tv-time! Even though I'm married and turning 27 next week, there is something so special about the time I get to share with my mom. She's my biggest fan, the best listener, and she even laughs at all my jokes ;)

Emily said...

My Mom is so loving and kind - I have health problems, and she's always cooking me meals to keep in the freezer. I really feel I couldn't have a better Mom.

booharts said...

I lost my Mama in December. She was an amazing mother of 16 biological children. She ran a home like a captain of a ship but with a lot of love. I miss her so very much.

My mother spoils her grandkids like any good grandma should. She's the best!

Stef said...

Awww, you're always so sweet with your kids!

My mom is my best friend. She would do anything for me and my family. She watches them two days a week while I work and when I go to pick them up, she even feeds us all dinner, every time. She goes above and beyond every single day. Don't know what I do without her.

Have a great weekend with your cuties!

amelquist said...

I love my Mom, I couldn't ask for a better Mom! She is caring, kind hearted and loves me no matter what!

My mom is the best. Recently when I had my 3rd child she took my boys for a whole 2 weeks while I was in the hospital and getting aquatinted at home!! Then she took them to her house (out of state) for spring break. It was the best transition and wonderful to spend time getting to know this new little one. She is the BEST mom EVER!!!

My mom is the best mom I could have asked for. She makes me laugh when I'm crying and smile when I'm sad. She is an amazing mom and I would be so grateful to be able to give her an amazing gift from your store to show her just how much I care about her.

threeboogers said...

My mom is a wealth of knowledge. I go to here for alot of things, that I know she's already gone through. I gave her one of your neckalces, and she LOVES it. We have alot of the same styles and tastes ;0)

Mormishmom said...

I'm so excited because my mom is coming into town next week for a visit and then we follow her home. It's been too long! She's an awesome lady and my craft inspiration.

Rebecca said...

Mom mom is awesome!

Elin said...

My mom is the greatest. She is the best teacher I've ever known because you don't even realize you are learning. Even at 33, I learn something new from her all the time.

Karen in VT said...

My Mom is the best :) Sometimes I think she knows me better than I know myself. She is always there for me with love and support, and she is the BEST Nana ever!!

Miss Anne said...

My Mom has taught me that she's human to, she makes mistakes, is real, has struggles/insecurities too, and has made the thought of upcoming motherhood all that more real and something that I not only embrace and look forward to, but a journey I cannot wait to share with her.

Jung A said...

my mom is special. she came to america with no family (but us) and not knowing a single soul or even the language. she raised me and my sisters to the women we are today.
