Do you know a mom who deserves to be Mom of the Year? #MOTY

This past weekend we celebrated the person who gave us life - mothers.  Where would be without all the wonderful mothers who are their children's greatest advocates? Having the opportunity to be a part of the prestigious club where the members call themselves 'Mom', is truly one of the most humbling experiences in a women's life.

WalMart Canada is launching the Mom of the Year Award

Do you know a mom who deserves to have the tile of Mom of the Year?
I have crossed paths with so many fantastic moms, who have inspired me to find a better mother within myself. 

I have met moms who have left their careers behind to homeschool and raise their families.   I have met moms who find a way to be in the bleachers for every recital, sporting event, and school event - for all of their children.   I've known moms who have infinite amounts of patience and never seem to get frustrated with their children. 

All these moms are extraordinary mothers and deserve the title of Mom of the Year.

Yet, I know of one special mom.  Watching your child's health deteriorate is one of the hardest thing to understand, and accept.    This special mom has kept the rest of the family chugging along, all the while attending to a child who has medical needs every day of the week.    This mom has been the voice of the child and has fought to find the best health care and resources for her child.   This mom has given the family a sense of normality throughout the whole ordeal.

Share your inspirational mom and nominate her for WalMart Mom of the Year Award!

If you have a mom in mind who deserves the title of Mom of the Year, then nominate her at www.momoftheyear.ca, between May 13 and July 8, 2012.

Eight finalists will be chosen by mid-August and will be treated to an award celebration weekend.  The Mom of the Year award recipient will receive $10 000 as her personal prize and be given $100 000 to a charity or cause of their choice.  The other seven runner-ups will each receive $10 000 and be given $10 000 to give to their favourite charity or cause!

Join in the fun and conversation about the mom who you think deserves the title of Mom of the Year, by tweeting with us on May 16, at 8:30 pm (ET)  Use hastag #MOTY.  There are great prizes to be had.  Find out all the details and how to participate, here.
