Mother's Day Contest -- 2007

Well, first let me start by saying that y'all are just blowing my socks off with the beautiful, and at times funny, entries that have even brought tears to my eyes. I am so blessed to be surrounded by such talented women that truly love their mothers! You have each made this contest difficult to judge!!! That, my friends ... is a very good thing.

Today is the last day that you can email me your entry. The topic is: "The one most special piece of advice your mother or mother figure ever told you" and should be 1500 characters or less. You have up until 11:59 pm, EST to email me your entries to: They will be judged tomorrow, and the winner will be announced on Sunday.

Many people have asked if I could share all the entries with you... I would love to, and I will plan on placing them all on my Kisses of Sunshine "extra" blog and provide you with a link. If you have emailed an entry, and you would rather not have me publish it, please let me know as soon as possible. Also, if you provided an entry and did not provide your blog address, or your screen name (or, in some instances, do not have a blog or website), I will use your first name only as credit to the entry, unless otherwise notified.

Now ... on to the judges ... I am so excited to have these two ladies helping judge this contest ... they are my dear "sister's-in-love" -- SBee and Sunshine. They are both remarkable women who have really had a life full of experiences that have made them stronger, more compassionate, and wonderful mothers. I admire them, and love them dearly, and I am honored to call them my sisters. I will be sending them all the "blind entries" tomorrow so they can help me judge which one will be the winner of the Tommy Hilfiger Purse and goodies ... but as far as I'm concerned, each of the entries are winners already!

Thank you all for participating!

If we're all winners, that means we all win, right? *wink*...

It would be fun to read all of the entries. I'm glad you are going to put them up somewhere for us to see and enjoy!!

And ugh... the suspense is killin' me!...

Happy judging to you all!

I can't wait to see what everyone said. I totally missed the contest! Oh well, will this become an annual contest Gibee?
