Mothers Day Giveaways

From 5 Minutes for Mom
Mother's Day 2008 - Giveaway Event

I think we mothers deserve just a little something for being mommies, don't you? Over at this awesome website I discovered though Marybeth a couple of months ago, they're having awesome giveaways from now through Mothers Day!

The first contest that I found out about is also a really big one - "Your Picture is Worth a Thousand Dollars! " The winner will receive a $1,000 American Express Gift Card – Sponsored by Egg Beaters. And basically, they're looking for photos that tell some sort of story of what motherhood means to each one of us. So, my photograph for this contest is...

This picture of me holding & looking at my daughter just minutes after she was born. Though I can barely even see her through my happy tears!

This picture is worth more than a thousand words - or dollars - to me. It's the epitome of what motherhood means to me. THIS was the moment motherhood became a real and tangible thing!

It's also really important that Perry, my hubby, is in the picture as well. He's always been right by my side through everything. And I would have never become a mother were it not for him! It's one of our very first family photographs with all 3 of us. It will forever be a true treasure in my heart.
