Mother’s Day always comes with a mixed bag of emotions for me. My own mom died 18 years ago this May. My dad remarried a short while later and my stepmother is a wonderful woman who could never replace my mom but instead fills a void that was left. I call her my adulthood mother. Several years ago I became a mom myself and that brought a new round of emotions on Mother’s Day - happy because I get to celebrate in a different way, yet sad for the huge sacrifice my son’s birthmother made.
I have so many wonderful memories of my mother but some of my favorites are of shopping together! She loved to shop and we would drive to a mall two hours away and spend the entire day, looking at every rack, in every store.
To celebrate Mother’s Day I’m having a giveaway. The winner will receive a free memory board! You get to choose the 11x14 memory board of your choice! Keep it for yourself to put up all the photos of your mother or give it to mom with all the great photos of you!
The rules (you knew there had to be some right?). The contest ends Sunday, the 25th of April. Winner will be announced on Monday, April 26:
