Nominate your Mom for the #Walmart Mom of the Year Award #MOTY #MothersDay

How was your Mother's Day? Did you spend it with your mother or your kids? I'm quite far away from my mom right now and was happy that I was able to Skype with her, even for a few minutes. When you don't see your mom all the time, every moment that you do get becomes precious. In celebration of Mother's Day, nominate someone you feel deserves Walmart Mom of the Year Award. I would love to nominate my own mom and grandma, although I am not eligible to win. I believe my grandmother is one of the most caring mothers of all time. She has always been absolutely positive no matter what happens to her, be it sadness or tragedy. She stays strong and smiles for the sake of her children and grandchildren. She forgoes everything for the sake of her family and easily gives up her own happiness just to put a smile on the faces of those around her. When my mother was just a child, their family was poor and so, my grandma would often go without food so that the kids could eat. No matter how little she had or how upside down their world was, it did not matter, taking care of her family came first. She was never cynical, she was never mean, and she would never harm a fly. She is the epitome of kindness and caring and if possible, I'd nominate her for Mom of the Century! She is what inspires my mother and I to become better people. Got a great story to tell or want to recognize your mom? Nominate them for the Mom of the Year Award.
