Erika submitted her Mom Maria in our "Tell Us About Your Mom Contest". Here is what she had to say..."My mom is always the first person to offer a helping hand. She will go out of her way to help any and everybody. She works a full time job, runs my grandparents everywhere they need to go (they live an hour away and are in their 80s), and still finds time to pick up her grandkids from school, and make a big dinner for all four kids their 3 spouses and 7 grandkids. She is our problem solver, and no matter how tired or pain she's in (rheumatoid arthritis) she is quick to help whoever needs it. She gives without any expectations of getting anything in return. Most recently she helped me plan every step of my wedding even when I was difficult to deal with she kept supporting me and took on so much to relieve my stress. Now as a 29yr old mom of 2, I hope I can be half the mom she is I pray I teach my kids to be as selfless as she is and that they look at me the way we all look at her, she is truly a blessing and we are lucky to have her as our mom. " Thank you Maria, for always going above and beyond! We honor you today!!
Mother's Day is a day every mom should feel extra special. They are the defender of their children, champion of homework, valiant, courageous fighter against the forces of skinned knees and fevers, who are disguised as an everyday woman, fights a never-ending battle to pee without someone pounding on the bathroom door.
To nominate your mom, all you have to do is fill out the form below and tell us about your mom. Every day we will be selecting a mom to win a gift card to Woodhouse Day Spa OR Shellfish Bar and Grill in Port Lavaca. We will also be featuring them on our station website. Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there!
