What is ‘Mom’? Truly it’s more than a task, a set of duties that encompass a role. It’s compassion, generosity and the selfless giving that it takes to nurture and raise a child. Not one that just gives birth; a Mom is an advocate, an inspiration, a hero to those who call her ‘Mom’.
Walmart Canada has launched the Mom of the Year Award
When I think of those special Moms that are fantastic souls that take on the role full-force, it makes me smile. Not only just being there for recitals and award shows, yet those that balance and sacrifice so much to ensure that their child has a full and enriching life. Some may tackle schedules that others deem impossible, or those that seem to have remarkable patience.
I know a couple Mothers that have overcome all odds and still come out smiling and equipped to hurdle the next obstacle, all with a positive attitude. And those that are not only great Moms to their kids, but also have a deep nurturing and helping hand for others as well. They seem to always be there when you need them, always willing to help fellow Moms on their path as well. This speaks volumes to me since you know that at the same time they are an excellent role model for their children as well.
Share your nomination in the WalMart Mom of the Year Award!
Recognizing all the Moms who contribute to families and communities across Canada, Walmart had launched a new annual initiative – The Mom of the Year Award. From now through July 8 you can submit your nomination at www.momoftheyear.ca.
