Mom of the Year

By Slattenk
My Mom was just selected for Mom of the Year in the category of “Mom who does the ordinary with extraordinary love”. How did she win such a big honor? Well, as the only judge, I will say that she won at age 84 because I took time to really appreciate how truly amazing she is.
Since my dad, her husband of 49 years and best friend, died two years ago, she’s taken on learning all the finances and running the house. She’s out in the yard mowing, shoveling or whatever it takes!
For the last 15 years, she’s been visiting her older sister in the nursing home many days a week. She takes care of her grandchildren while their parents are on trips. She still hosts the holiday gatherings.
This past week my 50-year-old brother had a heart attack. It devastated Mom to learn he was in serious condition in the hospital. She called a cab (first time ever) to go to the hospital and be with him and his wife. The next day she went to the hospital and spent the night so his wife could go home.
She would be truly embarrassed to ever receive any award. However, she really deserves this award so despite all her likely protesting … she’s the winner!
What category are you the Mom of the Year winner? Choose one. I see too many moms who are too hard on themselves and don’t honor all their hard work and effort. Today decide where you are the winner and take time to celebrate yourself!
