Tomorrow is Mother’s Day.  Whether you have a mom, are a mom, or miss your mom, I wish you the best of the holiday. 

I mean, it’s a very special day, after all.

But how do you buy the right gift for he person who actually BIRTHED you?  Who stayed up with you night after night when you were teething.  Who made all of your meals, who gave up things for herself in order to make sure YOU had everything?

There’s really not a gift big enough.

So, THANK YOU, Mom, I know how awesome you are, and how lucky I am to have you.  Especially lately…you do so much.  I hope you know how much I appreciate you.

The Giveaway

Now, the celebrity Moms get the entire $6000 gift bag, but, $500 is some pretty sweet swag.  I think my favorites are the Wraps – because I travel so much on a plane, and keeping up with headphones is a chore. These are a BRACELET.  You much check them out.  I would also love to get my hands on the Vortex Make Up Brushes.  I’ve never owned a nice set…and it’s such a luxury.  These look great!  Lastly – the Polaroid Instax?  Yes, please.  It’s making me nostalgic just thinking about it.

So, perhaps (real good chance, y’all, they want my readers HAPPY) all three of these things could end up in your winning Gift Bag.  Along with enough other goodies bringing it’s value to $500 or more.

You wanna win?

Say you do!  Just tell me in the comments your favorite thing about your mom or other special lady in your life, and at 11:59pm Sunday May 8, I will email one of you to let you know you won!  Good luck!

  1. my mom’s unwavering support and love is just amazing–i don’t think there’s anything she would hesitate to help me with. i wouldn’t be able to make it through med school without her 🙂

  2. Bethany says:

    my mom and I are best friends, and we’ve been able to keep that bond through it all! I love having her by my side, and I can’t wait to give her grandbabies!

  3. Brandi says:

    I love how caring and generous my mom is – she’ll do anything to help someone out

  4. Early morning phone calls just to check in and see how everyone is doing.

  5. My mom has always supported me no matter how stupid I was being and leads her family as a good role model. But needs to go pee a lot. 🙂

  6. Kaye Johnson says:

    My mom was the best. I always knew she would be there for me….to love me, support me, soothe my wounds, sit by my bed at night when I was afraid, and being the best role model I would ever need. I just lost her too soon. ??????

  7. I think my favourite memory would be the first time we sat and talked over coffee, one adult mother to another.

  8. My mother departed this earth in 1988 and left a hole not only in my heart, but my first born as well. She was a good mom in raising me to be the very best I could be. Even more so, she was a GRRREAT Mam’maw and gave of herself unconditionally. Never did she have a selfish bone in her body and she ALWAYS placed her family above all and inspired me to do the same. Her memory lives on in our ?.

  9. My mom is the foundation of our family. She has always been there for me. I have always had her support no matter what I needed support for. She has held my hand , wiped my tears and always been a shoulder for me to lean on. I love my mom and don’t know what I would do without her.

  10. Fontaina Powell says:

    Thank God for the women who are single or married that support mothers. Live life as full as you can, because mistakes will always be yesterdays news.

  11. Lynzi Smith says:

    My mom will do anything to help family and friends. She deserves a little pampering!

  12. I love that my mom is my biggest cheerleader. Even when I don’t believe in myself, I can always count on her to believe in me and boost my morale!

  13. My mother is the greatest source of love, courage, selflessness, strength and faith. I am completely in awe of this woman who lost a child, her parents, her only brother and sister and yet she perseveres (I couldn’t) and tries only to make the lives of those around her better every single day. She always does for others and literally never asks for anything. She prays every day for our family and friends and for people she has never met. I hope one day to be a tenth of the wonderful woman she is. I am forever grateful and my heart burst with pride that I can call her MY mom.

  14. Kristin says:

    My mom taught us to be the best we could be and to work hard!

  15. Tyneisha says:

    I miss my mom so much. I only got to know her for 19 years but in that short time she taught me to be strong and never give up, even when things looked bleak. I think what I loved the most about her was her positive spirit and high energy, even after she got sick. She was generous, selfless, kind, and always had a smile on her face. A tired smile sometimes, but it was there. I hope she can see me now and I hope I have made her proud. This Mother’s Day I will be caring for and loving my own 3 children, but I will have my mom in my heart and in my memory.

  16. Laura mueller says:

    My mom is the kindest and most loving person I know. She always checks up on me to make sure I’m at my happiest. If I’m not , then she will do everything it takes to fix that. Everyone she meets she makes them feel special.

  17. My Mom is gone now, and I miss how she was always there to talk to. She. Never judged, she listened. Very often her advice was the advice that stuck. She would have given me anything she could and she often did just that. I miss her every single day and would give anything to talk to her again. I love her with all my heart.

  18. Kelly D says:

    My mom has a great sense of humor and is always up for an adventure.

  19. Annette says:

    My favorite thing is her dedication. When she commits to something, she keeps her word.

  20. ErinEllis says:

    My favorite thing about my mom is how similar she is to me. We are two peas in a pod – We even share the same birthday! We are the best of friends and the closest of confidants. Thank you for the amazing giveaway, and Happy Mother’s Day!

  21. Janice Cooper says:

    My mom is a wonderful person with a big heart. She is always going above and beyond for people expecting nothing in return. She devotes a lot of her time at the church volunteering. She taught be how to be respectful and positive. My mom is truly a wonderful blessing!

  22. Amanda says:

    On this day I cherish that I have 5 wonderful kids but I also see that being a mom is more. My mother who raised me and my brother now takes care of my grandmother who has Alzheimers. A mom is a full time job even when you think that your time as a mother smooth sailing we are always shown another challenge. She has embraced this more then others do. She also devotes her time to her 7 grand kids when able. I’m blessed to have such a wonderful mom and words alone can’t express the love she gives as well as strength.

  23. @Pinklacedpoppy says:

    My mom isn’t my mother by blood. She made the choice to adopt me, which was an amazing and selfless choice on her own. she’s taught me that mom’s love extends all boundaries of life. A mom’s heart reaches even the darkest corners of a world. So without mothers our world would be so bleak!

  24. My Mom has been through the thick and thin with me and kids and has always provide all the love and support she had. She will help anyone willing to help themselves and tries to make others happy sometimes sacrificing her own. Could not ask for a Mother any better than the one I have.

  25. Marie V says:

    My mom has always encouraged me to be myself and stand up for what I believe in. She taught me to be a voice for others.

  26. she has an awesome attitude about everything

  27. My favorite thing about my mom is that she is always there for me!
