  2. I’ve seen a copy of this book – it’s wonderful! And the short memoirs in each chapter, written by daughters and sons, are fascinationg and inspirational.

  3. What I like about my mom is that she raised my 2 sister and I pretty much by herself. She raised us to be good,honest,respectful and loving adults. My sister and I both had hodgkins lymphoma and my mom took care of my sis 8 yrs ago and did all my cooking last yr when I had my chemo treatments. The love I have for her can’t be put in words. She helped me raise my daughter. She would do anything for anybody.She’s an Awesome mom.  Thanks for the giveaway!
