It goes without saying that moms simply are the best. She sacrificed her svelte body and carried you in her belly for nine gnarly months. She endured many a sleepless night tending to your every need. She kissed your numerous boo-boos goodbye. She wiped away your tears. She fed you chicken noodle soup and slathered you in copious amounts of Vicks VapoRub. She taught you how to be a lady.

    When I was in 8th grade I was bullied because I was new to the school. It was also my first time in a big school with lots of people. Being a teenage girl, that was really hard. I used to tweet during class about how much I hated being there and being around people, and since my mom followed me on Twitter she would see the tweets. So on the days when the tweets were in abundance she would get herself and the little 1-year-old she sat for in the car and drive two whole blocks down the street to my school to pick me up early or take me out to lunch. I will always remember how alone I felt during those times, but then I remember the little things my mom would do for me to make me feel like I belonged and I was being seen. That’s my favorite memory of my mom, sorry for the wall of text 🙂

    My favorite memory with my mom has to be the time she and I did a mini tour in Europe. Each morning we got to experience a new place and it was such great time spent with her. She was able to visit places she had dreamed of going her entire life. At that moment it let me know it’s never too late to pursue your dreams and for that I’m eternally thankful.

    One of my favorite memories of my mom is when I was in college in the 80’s, (yes, I KNOW, I am OLD!!), I was stuck at school on my birthday because of a freak snowstorm in Mississippi. Mississippi does NOT do snow! It was my 18th birthday. My mom was determined to come get me. Even though I was only an hour away, it took my parents many hours to navigate the slippery roads. I was so grateful, I was crying! I was so homesick to be home for my birthday!

      I love how selfless moms can be. And I can totally relate to being homesick in college. Thanks for entering!

    I love how my mom has overcome every burden know to man… Lost her own mother at age 15… and raised her two younger brothers. Raised two black children (she’s white) in an all white area when interracial couples was NOT the cool thing to do, got her Masters Degree when she was 33 years old, fought for the rights of women, minorities, and many other causes. She is strong, dedicated to her family and making the world a better place. I want to be just like her.
