    My mom taught me to love travel and appreciate art. She also taught me to be a feminist and to stand up for myself. She is the reason why I value education!

    My mom can always cheer me up even from miles away

  5. My sweet momma taught me what loving good food was all about. We don’t spend much time together now (we’re halfway across the country!) but when we do, we spend most of it concocting delicious things in the kitchen and I absolutely love that time!

    My mom is strong, smart, understanding, and caring. She gives tough love, but that’s because she believes in her children. She teaches her children the importance of hard work and determination. You have to work to get it – nothing is handed to you. Moms are awesome, but I think my mom is the best! 🙂 🙂

    I am thankful for my mom who inspired my love of cooking & who always packed my lunches for school growing up – my favorite were her “banana messages” where she would write me a special note in sharpie on the banana. 🙂

    My mom is an incredible baker, a great home builder, and full of love for her family. Love you, ma!

  13. She’s a fighter! Her tenacity helped her kick cancer, and she’s lived every day to the fullest since.

    My mom has never pushed me to be anything other than who I am, and I am so so grateful for her love and support.

  17. I loved my mom so much and I miss her everyday since she passed. I’m fortunate enough to have a mother in law that is sweet and kind so she makes it a little easier when I need someone.
