Megan May 1, 2011 - 1:20 pm

Perhaps the greatest thing about being a mom is the opportunity to disciple and shape the people with whom God has entrusted to me. Similarly, the scariest thing about being a mom is that I am constantly surrounded by opportunities to fail in this very endeavor. πŸ™‚

Audrey Griffin May 1, 2011 - 2:05 pm

The greatest thing about being a mother is seeing my little ones grow and achieve new levels of life. I love the fact that I am fortunate to able to stay home and raise them, instead of having to send them to daycare or somewhere like that.

Liz Taylor May 1, 2011 - 2:19 pm

The greatest thing about being a mother for me is that I get to be called “Mommy” by the sweetest, most snuggly little boys I have ever met. Every day with them is an adventure, and I love to watch from my front row seat as they learn new things…sometimes with my help.

Michelle Smiles May 1, 2011 - 4:30 pm

The greatest thing about being a mom is at the end of a day when I think I just can’t handle another minute, little arms wrap themselves around my neck for a hug and a little voice says “I love you Mommy”.

Marissa Hojdila May 1, 2011 - 4:47 pm

Erica May 1, 2011 - 7:54 pm

The greatest thing about being a mother is knowing that no matter how bad your day at work was, how hurtful the argument with your husband was, how bad of a hair day you may be having, or that you haven’t put on eye shadow since the day she was born…my 3-year old thinks I’m the most beautiful person in the world. And to hear those three little words, “I Love You,” from her sweet voice, makes all the bad things seem not so important anymore. I love you Sydney Marie, my world hasn’t been the same since you entered it, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Love, Mommy.

[email protected] May 1, 2011 - 8:56 pm

Thanks for the giveaway, Sami! My favorite thing about my mom is that she somehow manages to put others ahead of herself without acting like a martyr. She’s genuinely other-centered. I admire that about her.

Carol May 1, 2011 - 11:23 pm

The greatest thing about being a mom is the love that I have received back from my daughter,through out all the years. Even through the ups and downs of life, the good days and the not so great days,I would not trade motherhood for not ever having the privilege, or blessing, of having a child! Watching and guiding my child and helping her grow and mature into her own person has been, and continues to be, one of God’s greatest gifts!

Nanci May 2, 2011 - 10:03 am

The greatest thing about my mom is that she gave me the tools and resources to be a good mom to my own kids: patience, love, acceptance, understanding. The greatest thing about being a mom is hearing my kids say “I love you” for no reason.

cathy cohen May 2, 2011 - 10:03 am

the greatest thing about being a mom is watching how your grown sons instill the beliefs that you gave them into their own children. Also, knowing that the love you gave comes back to you tenfold.

Eric Boivin May 2, 2011 - 10:04 am

The greatest think about my mother is her heart. She loves her children and grandchildren dearly and we are better people because of her. I love you mom and look forward to our many days together.

Lynda May 2, 2011 - 10:05 am

The greatest thing about my mother is that she is always there for me. She did not hold me back when I met my American husband, and supported me when I decided to move to the USA from the UK. Even though there is a time difference, I know that I can call on her, and count on her being there for me any time of the day or night. She still knows me the best, and is not only the best Mom, but also a terrific Grandmother to my 3 kids. (I just wish she would move to the USA too!!)

Jana Hansen May 2, 2011 - 10:07 am

The greatest thing about my Mom is her unconditional love! And I’m a lot like her, in a lot of ways, and I wouldn’t change it for the world! I get my perpetual procrastination from her, but also her mad shopping skills! Love you Mamma Jamma!!!

Dawn Milmine May 2, 2011 - 10:08 am

The greatest thing about being a mother is the time I share with my daughter. Watching her laugh and learn, smile and cry, it’s all a part of the journey we are taking together. And when she hugs me and tells me she loves me, nothing else in the world can compare.

Gynger May 2, 2011 - 10:08 am

the greatest thing about my mother is how much she loves her family, her strength to live in constant pain (with surviving a 3% survival rate brain surgery, living with atypical Tuberculosis, and other internal problems) the courage she displays to all that worry for her, and her will to move forward. She is an amazing person, and this simple comment doesn’t even come 1% close to how much love i have of for her. I am 27 years old with 5 kids and I am proud to say I love my mommy.

laura blewer May 2, 2011 - 10:10 am

the greatest thing about my mom and about being a mom is… There is no other love quite like a mother’s. In my life, there will be no one who is as unconditionally caring, loving, forgiving, and patient as my mother.my mom being an example and me being an example to my own children. Being a mother is one of the great missions in life, and anyone who takes on the role is really to be commended. There is no salary for being a mother; the payment for this job is the unconditional love of your child.The smiles… the laughter you recieve is worth more than you could ever get paid.

Heidi P May 2, 2011 - 10:10 am

The Greatest thing about my Mother is no matter what humps in the road God has given her she takes them in stride! My mother has always been there for me and still is, she has extreme physical pain every day all day long every day and NEVER complains! It amazes me how she does it, shes always there for her children and Grandchildren no matter whats going on in her own life. I dont know what Id do without my mother!!! She hasnt had an easy life and finally was blessed with the most wonderful husband and after only 17 yrs with him he was taken from her during a freak accident, she still holds her head high and loves each day to the fullest :)She is the most unselfish person I know, she deserves pampering! I LOVE YOU MOM xoxoxoxox

marcela ramirez May 2, 2011 - 10:15 am

Jennifer Wells May 2, 2011 - 10:17 am

The Greatest thing about my Mother is She raised 9 children on her own after my Father was killed. She thinks and does for others before she does anything for herself. She was a Mom to everyone. We lost her 2 years ago on March 7th due to Ovarian Cancer stage 4. Love and Miss Her so much…

Eva Fitchett May 2, 2011 - 10:25 am

The best part of being a MOM is knowing even though your kids have grown up and moved out, they still need you and there seems to be a different type of love & respect. It’s a real joy to be both a mom and a grandmother.

Aimee May 2, 2011 - 10:29 am

Greatest this about being a mom is wakinig up knowing that I have been given the best present each day – two little boys that melt my heart with every smile, hug, tear, laughter… Nothing can match the feeling that one gets from the love of a child especialy my own!

Danielle King May 2, 2011 - 10:52 am

Tabitha D May 2, 2011 - 11:17 am

The greatest thing about being a mother is that no matter what happens my girls will always love me. No matter the challenges that are thrown at us at every turn of the day my girls know I am there for them one hundred percent. When they try my patience and have me at my wits end that one smile or hug makes everything fade away and its just me and them. When they do the smallest things that make my heart swell with pride and tears form in my eyes I am overjoyed that they belong to me!!!

Kristy May 2, 2011 - 11:27 am

The greatest thing about being a mother is being able to give unconditional love and being able to receive unconditional love!

Doris Golightly May 2, 2011 - 11:34 am

You never know what you had until you lose one of them. I had two children and I lost my only son at age 29 to pneumonia. I love my daughter even more since I lost him. Being a Mother also brings heartache but God will see you through it all.

Laura rogers May 2, 2011 - 11:38 am

The greatest thing about being a mother is the gift of unconditional love that you are instantly given when you create a child. It is so amazing.

Holly May 2, 2011 - 11:46 am

Susie L May 2, 2011 - 11:48 am

Although I am not a mother, I am blessed to have a wonderful Momma in my life! My mother is one word, “crazy,” That’s crazy in a good way folks, she has the best sense of humor, is young and hip, she’s got dance moves that would crack you up, and a warm, caring, giving heart. I love my Momma and wish I could give her everything that she deserves this Mother’s day, if only I was a billionaire!

suprada May 2, 2011 - 11:59 am

My mother tried to keep me away from all the bad things. she supported me all my life till date . Even when angry and shouted at her she calmly listen my words and never shouted back. but she tried to teach me as much as she know and keep me corrected whenever i was doing wrong. she is the best teacher for me too.
I am at early stage of motherhood. i am trying to keep my baby in good as much i can. now i realize how my mother went through pains . so i keep my mother as a role model and will try taking care of my baby. i think when we are mother the emotions make us good, selfless, dedicated for the baby. that what Mother is Mother. no one can comapare mother to anything else!!!!

Patricia Doxey May 2, 2011 - 12:00 pm

The greatest thing about being a mother is it’s the gift that keeps on giving. Wonderful children give you wonderful Grandchildren. What more could a person ask for. More love to give and receive.

Nicole Allen May 2, 2011 - 12:01 pm

Elizabeth Card May 2, 2011 - 12:26 pm

The Greatest thing about being a Mother is when my little boy gives me the biggest hug ever and says “thanks Mom!” when he sees I have done everyting possible for him. The gratitude is immeasureable!

Lori armstrong May 2, 2011 - 12:48 pm

Emily May 2, 2011 - 1:11 pm

The best gift is becoming a mother. I lost my mother at 16 from Cancer and being able to watch my kids grow up has been the best gift. There is no word to describe love when you have children and just being able to see them each and every day is a gift to me. I have been blessed with three angels and love them so much.

Desiree May 2, 2011 - 1:33 pm

My mother is an over-comer. What I mean by that is that she has battled with things that would bring most people, including herself, to tears. For years she lived with degenerating cartilage in her right hip and sometimes the pain would be too much to take. She would lie awake in pain night after night while her leg would spasm from a pinched nerve. In 2001 she had her hip replaced, but it didn’t solve much since the doctor who performed the surgery damaged a nerve. But she over came it. She refuses to use a cane, limping along after me at the mall on our day together once a week. She goes to Tai Chi to try to gain some strength in her leg. She strives to walk one bench further every time we go out. She is one of the strongest people I know. I, myself, was born with Dual Hip Dysplasia and she is my role model to overcome the pain I have after work.

angela sook May 2, 2011 - 1:46 pm

* The greatest thing about my mother is….There is always a house full of LOVE!!

Tara C May 2, 2011 - 2:16 pm

Love watching them grow and learning who they are.

Alexandria Bauer May 2, 2011 - 2:17 pm

The greatest thing about being a mother is receiving the hugs and kisses from my children. Also love getting pictures colored that I can hang up in my office. My favorite thing is they are still small enough where they can cuddle with me. LOVE LOVE LOVE it when they cuddle with me.

Lily Duncan May 2, 2011 - 2:28 pm

The greatest thing about being a mother is the blessing of getting a chance to BE one!! Everyday of my son’s life is an adventure and a stretch of my soul to keep up with the nurturing, counseling, teaching, chauffering, cooking, coaching, praying, loving, planning, organizing, cleaning, baking, photographing, arranging, listening, and just being there for him! I wouldn’t have it any other way! I love BEING a mom.

Kimbre Birdwell May 2, 2011 - 2:34 pm

Amy Adams May 2, 2011 - 3:43 pm

Mary Elizabeth Maynord May 2, 2011 - 5:04 pm

The greatest thing about being a mother is getting a tiny taste of the unconditional love that the Father has for me when I (as the parent) look at my sweet children. Also, to more deeply understand the sacrifice He made as He gave up His Son for me–that is LOVE!

Shelly May 2, 2011 - 5:29 pm

The greatest thing about being a mother is… my son!

Lela Barber May 2, 2011 - 6:06 pm

I have been blessed to have my children grown & on there own, doing well, being happy healthy. That was about as special as I thought it could get. Well, for whatever reason I was picked to have a late-in-life baby that is now 11 years old. He is autistic & has taught me more than I ever thought I could learn about a true, innocent heart. I have wonderful grandbabies older than him & all of a sudden I was given this special gift. I truly have been blessed with so much love. All I can say is “Thank You To Whoever Is In Charge!!”

Michele Noh May 2, 2011 - 6:26 pm

The greatest thing about being a mom is watching our two children (2.5 and 5.5) playing together, and fighting together – mostly fighting each other, and yelling at each other, and annoying each other, and making each other cry, and then in the end, make up and love on each other πŸ™‚

Sue S May 2, 2011 - 6:35 pm

The greatest thing about being a mother is the sense of satisfaction when kids make you so proud…….then gift you with grandkids……..a second chance to
enjoy those good times all over again.

Elaine Bolton May 2, 2011 - 7:40 pm

The greatest thing about my mom, is that shes always there for us. We are a big family, and she still goes without a haircut,perm,or color if any of us needs one instead. That is why i like to take her to Great Clips to pamper her once in awhile. If we need anything ,she is there for us, and thats why we love her so much.

Elaine Bolton May 2, 2011 - 7:48 pm

The Greatest thing about my mom is that shes always there for us. We are a big family, and she still goes without a haircut, perm or color if any of us needs one instead. That is why I like to take her to Great Clips to pamper her once in awhile. She is not selfish, and I wish i could give her the world this mothers day, but i am not rich

Linda T May 2, 2011 - 7:51 pm

for me the best thing about being a mom was hearing my 21 yr old son say…
“mom, i get it now”…

Sandy May 2, 2011 - 8:53 pm

I burried my Mom on Saturday before Mothers Day 3 years ago. Wish I could just see her face and here her voice one more time. She was my best friend, someone who I could talk to and never be judged.

Jayme Taylor May 2, 2011 - 11:05 pm

The greatest thing about being a mommy, is even when I think I am having the worst day ever, all I have to do is look at my little girls faces and when they smile at me all the bad that I thought I had that day just melts away. They always say a mothers kiss can fix or heal anything, I think its the other way around, a child kiss, hugsmile or even laugh, can make everything “all better”.

Stephenie May 2, 2011 - 11:25 pm

The greatest thing about being Mom, is the hugs, smiles, and giggles that only a Mom can get from their kids. Also the Greatest thing about being a mom is the trust that a child has in Mom. Mom’s see the best and worst of kids, but that’s because my children trust that there won’t be any retaliation, and that they will be taught the right way to do things.

beth May 3, 2011 - 8:22 am

The best thing about being a mom is the hug of a child. When they hug, they hold on and it is as if the world stands still and there are no worries.

Lorrie Smith-Maloney May 3, 2011 - 8:37 am

The greatest thing about being a mother is holding this little human being in your arms and knowing no matter how old they are this unsurmountable love will always be a constant and flourish. While you watch them grow, develop their own personality, hold them when their hurt or sick ,when they go through their teen years and infuriate you, when they graduate college, get married and have children of their own the reciprocal love grows with you. Being a mother is a gift and should not be taken for granted.

quandmeme May 3, 2011 - 10:10 am

It’s great to be a mom and be doing the most important work I could be doing.

Cindy C May 3, 2011 - 10:20 am

For me, the greatest thing about being a mother is that I know how much my children, Matt 17 and Grace 7, love me. I have been a single mom since right after my daughter was born and would, honestly, not change anything because my children and I are so close! We have constant struggles for money especially now that my son will be going away to college in August but somehow we manage to get through. They never seem to mind that they don’t have the nicest cars or best clothes, etc. There is nothing greater in the world than the love a child!

Barbara Gerard May 3, 2011 - 10:20 am

The best thing about my mother is that she is always there for me. She always thinks of doing and giving to other people. She is the best!

Mandy May 3, 2011 - 11:55 am

being a mom has taught me more about God and His love than anything else. i now have a better understanding of how i can make so many mistakes and God will still love and forgive me. only my girls have brought that kind of love and offering of forgiveness from my life. being a mom has been the biggest challenge and blessing i have ever known.

Kimbre B May 3, 2011 - 12:28 pm

The greatest thing about being a mom is when you work all day long and you come home they meet you at the door with a smile & and hug for you. It just makes my day a whole lot better. The love that these Wonderful Kids put out to their parents is the Greatest thing ever.

Suz May 3, 2011 - 6:28 pm

quandmeme May 5, 2011 - 10:18 am

It’s great to be a mom. It’s a shame when Mom’s think that they are not valued by society–how long does a society last if no one’s willing to be a mom!

Bethani May 5, 2011 - 12:28 pm

The greatest thing about my mother is her determination and perseverance. My mother is disabled. She has multiple sclerosis and cerebral palsy, so life hasn’t been too easy on her. She also has had a very bad drug problem, and because of this she lost custody of my little sister and I in 2003. Since then, she has been in and out of jail, and now, she has officially been clean for an entire year! After all of that time I thought she would never get clean. But she has, and she has paid off all of her fines and gotten off of probation so that she can be in mine and my sister’s life again. I know this might not sound like such a great mother, and honestly, she wasn’t. But I’m so very proud of her for changing and making an effort to be the good mother she never was.

Julie Donner Andersen May 6, 2011 - 10:51 am

The greatest thing about my mom is that she hasn’t lost her sense of humour – or her lust for life – since her stroke. Although she can’t speak, her body language and facial expressions remind me of Lucille Ball. She loves to make people in the nursing home laugh.

Jenna verbruggen May 6, 2011 - 10:53 am

The best thing about my mom is she is the closet person to me in my life.

Karol Patras May 6, 2011 - 10:54 am

The greatest thing about being a mother is watching those little tiny babies grow. I enjoyed and cherish each and every moment my boys were growing up. I had my youngest son taken away from me in 1999. He was just 3 weeks before turning 18 yrs old and he was in an automobile accident and passed away on the way to the hospital. I miss him so much. Each Mother’s Day and all of the other holidays, his birthday, is so sad. I do have my oldest son who is 32 and I still cherish each and every moment I get to share with him…thank you for this wonderful giveaway.

crystal rodriguez May 6, 2011 - 10:57 am

The best thing about being a mother is seeing the smiles on the wonderful kids that I have. They just make my day. And you never know love till you have kids.

The greatest thing about being a mother is just that…being a mother! Being able to see my daughter grow up & learn new things every day! Seeing her explore new friendships & things is great! I wouldn’t take being a mother back for anything. I cannot wait until our son is born in July…to see my children grow as brohter & sister <3

Lorraine May 6, 2011 - 11:03 am

The greatest thing about my Mother was that she was a christian and before she passed on she knew she was dying and wanted to be with me. She said I would have twin girls when I was able to have children. A year and a half later, I did! My girls are ten years old and I get to celebrate with them all the time and love to tell them that even though they never met their Grandma, she knew they would be mine. I miss you Mom! We’ll bake some cookies in your memory this weekend!

dixie tinsley May 6, 2011 - 11:20 am

the greatestr thing about being a mom is raising your own children and then sitting back to see how they raise theirs and all the things they ssy to their children that youy have said to them. they call you when they get frustrated and need you. they call you when they are so pleased at what their children have done. they want you in their kids life and youre known as gramma to ones who love you more than you think your own kids ever did, until you hear your own kids say, ” i love you mom. i could never have done this with my kids without you.” And we are allowed to cry because we are the grammas with such love and pride in both the generations we are watching. πŸ™‚

Tammy Shaughnessy May 6, 2011 - 11:23 am

The best thing about being a mom is watching your children grow up to be independent and happy young men. My boys are grown now and are just that. They have gone through so many adversities but have used them to become fine young men. I am very proud of them.

gretchen albrecht May 6, 2011 - 11:25 am

The greatest thing about being a mom is the half smiles they give as they get older to let you know I know your here and thanks. The look of suprise I get every morning from the twins as I am getting them out of bed. The three year old that when told to go to bed says can I sleep in mommy’s bed.

Leila May 6, 2011 - 11:25 am

The greatest about being a mom is how much it changes your perspective on the world and love.

cris May 6, 2011 - 11:31 am

My mom has always been there for me… She never complaints. I didn’t realize all the sacrifice that She did for us until i got my own. Its hard to be a mom and I dont believe I see her pamper herself. Even until now, she always still ask what we need and we dont need to say anything. She knows. Little things are so big when your a mom… i cant imagine all the hard work she did while we are growing up. It seems so hard now that I’m experiencing myself but she never did complain! That is why I think my mom deserves a gift. And for me, even though its hard being a mom, what matters most is the smile of my children. that makes me happy and fulfilled!

Allen Winters May 6, 2011 - 11:35 am

susan cassler May 6, 2011 - 11:35 am

I love my sons with all my heart, but honestly, one of the best parts of being a mother is :grandkids. I spoil them, have fun with them and then send them home……They make me smile, give me hugs and love to go to Oma’s house.
So what more could I want in life, 2 wonderful sons whom I adore and love me, 9 wonderful grandchildren, and my grandpuppies.

Rachel Watson May 6, 2011 - 11:40 am

The best thing about my mommy is that she’s always been there for me, even when I was not in agreement with her or treated her badly, she’s always been the wind beneath my wings and I couldn’t be the mom I am today without her example, I only aspire to touch my kids with just as much love as she touched us with.

Monica May 6, 2011 - 11:54 am

The greatest thing about my mother is….she is my #1 fan and cheerleader. She is always there when I need her through good and bad. She has a high moral standing and is fun to be around. She is absolutely great with her 2 grand-boys. They even moved 400 miles to be closer to us after retirement. I love you, mom!

Dawn Wagner May 6, 2011 - 1:33 pm

The greatest thing about being a mother is watching my children grow into what I love to call “beautiful weirdos”. I love the strangest thing from my kids, the imaginerary friends, when they talk to themselves, when they pick out their own clothes or “paint” their face with lipstick! And then snuggle on my lap and get cookies all over my clothes.
I really want to answer the second question also. The greatest thing about my mom is all the amazing memories she left me with. She died 7 years ago suddenly in her sleep, every day I strive to have the patience she had, the grace, the love she had and the acceptance of everyone.

laura blewer May 6, 2011 - 1:43 pm

the greatest thing about being a mother are my 4 kids. i love each of them dearly.if i win the ipod i will give it to my oldest child because that has been on the birthday/christmas list for a year now. i sacrifice alot but for the smiles i recieve its worth it.

Jody Crampton May 6, 2011 - 2:41 pm

Tammy Dobbs May 6, 2011 - 2:53 pm

The greatest thing about being a mother is the unconditional love that you share with them. You can be looking your worst and not had a bath in a day or so, they will tell that you are the most beautiful mother in the world.

Tricia Moore May 6, 2011 - 3:25 pm

The greatest thing about being a mother is being able to teach my children through the experiences I introduce them to. Whether it’s a trip to the beach to play in the ocean and dig in the sand or a trip to the grocery store and taking the time to feel coconuts and pineapples or even a visit to our local library for storytime or to borrow a new book. I love seeing things through their eyes and as a result opening my own eyes to a different way to experience life. I am truly blessed!

S Babu May 6, 2011 - 3:32 pm

The Greatest Thing about my mother is…. my dad salary was 3$ a month(we were in india) and she raised 6 kids in that salary and she gave us education and we had a small house & farm. I remember my mom use to sell milk, sell the vegetables we grow at home, recycle anything and everything. Now, we are all happy and in a good position and my mom still saves by walking to a place where she could go in a car. She still thinks only about her kids health than hers. She is now 64. I love you mom. I say it here…and i will say that to her as well.

The Greatest thing being mom….i hv 2 kids. I see me in them. I will (as any mom) give away even my last drop of blood if they need that to survive. love my kids.

The greatest thing about being a mother is being able to spend every day watching your children grow, learn, laugh and love. Being a mother is the best!

Georgia Blits May 6, 2011 - 6:01 pm

The best thing about being a mom? I would have to say the opportunity to raise your children to be the best that they can be, teaching them how to help others in need and to not just look out for themselves. When you have taught them that and you see them out in the real world and they’re donating themselves and they’re time to help out others and not expecting something out of it but the fact that when someone needed them, they were there to help, that makes life worthwhile as a mom!!

michella nsync May 6, 2011 - 6:23 pm

April Youngblood May 6, 2011 - 8:55 pm

The greatest thing about being a mom is knowing that person from day one and watching them change and grow and sharing in that beautiful miracle.

Chrissy May 7, 2011 - 8:31 am

The greatest thing about my mother is the little things that she does to show that she loves me. She did a HUGE thing and took me back home rent-free when I hit financial hard times, and instead of harping at me, she’s supported me. Then she goes and does little things like making me a pb&j sandwich for my lunch or leaves little sticky-notes on the mirror.

Rose Rawdon May 7, 2011 - 10:34 am

There are a lot of things that are great about being a Mom – how do you pick just one? God gave me the desires of my heart when he brought my children to me. He may not have used my body to create them but he definitely used my heart! There have been great times and even extremely difficult times. But God has used both to grow us as individuals and as a family. I love that even as teenagers they still want to have their one on one time with me, asking for and giving hugs and enjoying being together as a family. I enjoy watching them discover their individuality (even though sometimes I have to step back) and love that they each have a heart for GOD and for others.
I hope each of you have a great Mother’s Day! God bless!

Jennifer Raack May 7, 2011 - 10:58 am

Having my children around me for as long as I can.

Lena Leow May 7, 2011 - 11:58 am

The greatest thing about being a mom is… being strong when both my kids were diagnosed with a very rare brain disease. One five years ago and another just last thanksgiving. I learnt to be strong from them when I got diagnosed with breast cancer. They bless me each day with their laughter, mischief and joy for life. They are the ones that give me the strength and purpose in life. If they can enjoy life with all the difficulties they face, then my illness is just a walk in the park. They make me a mom. LOVE AND GOD’S BLESSINGS upon them always. Happy Mother’s Day to all.

steve emming May 7, 2011 - 12:14 pm

That she is a great Mom! Been that way forever!
