2. Comment below telling us why you are grateful to have a mother like yours.

This competition closes on Sunday, 10th May 2015. Winners will be notified via email.


  1. All moms are special to their own children, and to each child in a special way. My mom is a nurturer, cooks and bakes and is always there for us. We have made many happy memories to last and she has brought us up to respect others, be kind and help out when and if we can, no deed is too small to be appreciated by others. We are very grateful that she is our mom 🙂

  2. My mom is the most selfless person I’ve ever met. Her love for people is so pure and she’s an amazing teacher. I’m grateful for every little thing she’s done for me and taught me, and I hope to one day be a phenomenal woman just like her.

  3. In the eyes of my mother I am a champion. If do something wrong she never shouts on top of her voice, she sits me down and makes me see that I was wrong and helps me to find ways to make amends for the wrongdoing. She gave birth to me, fed and weaned me, clothed me, gave me the love and warmth. For all these and others I am grateful to have had her as my mother!!

  4. I am grateful that my mother is my mother because she was a single women, that worked so hard to get is through our childhood and made our Childhood Awesome, she showed us by example that you as a woman could stand on your own feet, that you could earn a decent salary and live a happy life, but that it came with hard work and dedication! Happiness is yours if you want it you just had to earn it!

  5. I love my mom because all her life, she is the same each and every day she wakes up. And even in the hardest of times she would sing me awake every morning while opening the curtains!

  6. My mom has the most beautiful heart♡.Her kindness and generosity knows no bounds. She makes everyone feel lived and special.

  7. I have never met soul more caring, more selfless, more passionately invested in the critical well being of another person than the soul of a mother. my mother grew me from her her heart and her tears and her desperate intention to create a being of joy, so that she could pour her endless love over me and set me free into the world.

    I love her with all that i am, but that love does not begin to weigh equally against the love she has for me. I give her all that I can but that cannot be measured against what she gives me. I am so grateful for my mother, but no words or gesture can ever thank her enough. this gift would be a drop in the ocean, but it would be a symbol of our eternal link, for there is no relationship where the hand of God is more evident than that between a mother and her son.

  8. Being a mom requires no special talent. To each person their mom is one-of-a-kind. I’m greatful that she is loving & caring “) #trollbeads #goodluck

  9. I have the best Mom, She is always so positive, always putting herself last, she is an incredible woman, I love her to the moon and back 😉

  10. My dearest Mother is no longer with me in the flesh…but will always remain in my heart forever. Love you MOM… untill we meet again some day.

  11. I am truly grateful for my mother. She is my best friend and I will always be there for her and vice versa. I truly admire how strong she is… sometimes I just don’t know how she does it?! I am not going to lie.. she is a bit harsh and unsympathetic sometimes, when it comes to the matters of the heart, which is obviously one of the thing I don’t like as much but still admire because without her harshness I would not have been as strong as I am. Without her I won’t be who I am today. So I am really grateful to my mother for being my best friend and making me the person that I am today!! *

  12. My mom is one in a million and I am grateful to have her because …Everything r I am today, whatever I have achieved…I owe to my mom. She has taught me well. My mom is not the typical mom who would wake up very early in the morning to prepare breakfast for us. Nor is she the type who will cook merienda for us while we were still in school, so that by the time we get home, there would be a hot cup of chocolate and pancakes waiting for our much-deserved snacks. No. Mama is more than that. She is the working-mom-kind-of-mother who works 8 hours a day, then comes home and faces the household chores. I admire her for what she knows and for being so cool about it. Ask her any question and she is always beaming with the right answer. She often challenges my values, my convictions – making sure that I keep the right values close to my heart always, and get rid of the things that destroy both the body, mind and spirit.The wisdom that my mom shares with me is simply priceless.
    Life is a pool of learnings gathered from past experiences, but without a mother guiding you as you go through life, my paths would have been different. Learning never stops when I am with mom. She is the best, if not the bestest.
    She is God’s gift to me. From her, I learned everything that I needed to survive in this challenging world.She taught me the real meaning of love (outside of emotions and beyond words) forgiveness, patience and grace.
    She is a mother who takes care of all our needs.
    She is a friend who takes time to listen whether I had a happy or sad story to tell. She is my teacher, my mentor and my one & only coach : teaching me what really matters in this world.
    I can only thank God for my mom because without her, I would not have been brought out into this world and enjoy the life I now enjoy. My Mom means the world to me. She has lifted me up when down. She has inspired me to do the things I need to do. She has helped me through my hard times. My mum is the truest friend I have, when trials heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine desert us; when trouble thickens around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.

  13. My Mom is as Tina Tuner sings … ‘Simply the Best’. She has taught me impeccable manners and excellent morals & beliefs. Whilst I was growing up we had a lot of fun in the kitchen …. from squeezing the lemons to me licking the condensed milk tins! Still today, I use my Mom’s famous recipes.

  14. She is my sunshine on a cloudy day…
    And has taught me that in order to succeed in life I need to pray…

    Momma has always given me the best advice…
    And you have not lived until you have tasted her amazing chicken curry and rice…

    She is honest, caring, warm and forgiving…
    And she makes my life worth living…

    Nothing can compare to my mothers love…
    For without her, I would be like a pairless glove…

    She’s my best friend. She’s the type of mom one could ever dream of. She teaches me things but when I mess up, is the first person to help me out.

    My mom is the greatest! Took a while to understand how privileged I am to have her, but now that I know, I love her unconditionally.

    She has helped me out through the toughest situations in my life, held my hand through treatments that I had to go under, she has always done everything possible to make sure that I’m happy.

    I love the fact that she’s the “bowl of chicken soup when you’re sick” type of mom. She is the ultimate & I doubt God could have given me a better companion during life.

    She is amazing!

    Too many reason to mention here.

    But would love for her to own this bracelet! Would be the perfect fit for the perfect mom 🙂

  16. I’m grateful for her, simply because , she loved and supported me through everything ,she has taught me so many things in life but I truly Thank her for teaching me how I should be free spirited and go for what I want in life ,she would say to me do not be afraid to fail because that means you are trying , By trying it means you want to succeed ,even when I graduated from college she said to me ,remember how hard it was paying your textbooks and tuition fees ,and Studying up all night for exams ,and I said yes ,and I then understood it wasn’t about the destination but it was the journey that made me appreciate what I had accomplished and it was the journey that grew our relationship, it wasn’t easy But we made it happen, we didn’t have much but we loved each other ,we supported one another ,I always say I would never understand her pain as a single mother raising 4 children by herself ,she was a remarkable ,strong, beautiful, kind and loving mother, She is the reason why I am a better person and a great mother

  17. My Mom and I have been through so much together. Yes, I love her for all her good qualities, but i love her for her weaknesses too. I think when you go through things that no one else has experienced, you establish a soul person connection. When that happens with the person whose blood and DNA you share an even deeper connection.
    Even though i am married now, my mom is still there for me. Both myself and my husband find that spending time with my mom and my step dad to be very enjoyable and we consider them friends. Not only do I think I am lucky to have had a brilliant, patient, kind and wise mom, but to have her as a friend is a blessing I don’t think I will ever get to make up to her.
