The Lessons We Learn – Mother’s Day Giveaway

Win a Mother’s Day Cake Delivery! –  CONTEST CLOSED.

Mother’s Day is a week from Sunday!  Once a year, we have this special day to tell our Mom’s, Grandmother’s and special women in our life that they are appreciated and valued.  I know that growing up, I didn’t really have an understanding of what my own Mother went through to raise three rambunctious boys. Now, she is the most important woman in my life.  What did I learn from Mom?  A HECK of a lot!  But one of my favorite mommy adages is:
“If you don’t ask, the answer is no.  It never hurts to ask.”

It seems simple but that’s a life lesson that applies to just about everything I’ve ever done!

We want to hear what you learned from Mom – the special lessons and memories that you have from growing up.  Reach down and talk to that inner child that will always be Mom’s special boy or girl.  Post your comment below for your chance to win a free cake delivery from Bake Me A Wish!!


RULES:  Post on our blog about your favorite lesson from Mom – each lesson you post is a new entry into the giveaway.  We’ll select three lucky readers to receive a free Mother’s Day Cake delivery for themselves, or to send to their mother.  Your comment number is your entry number and we’ll select the winners at random using a random number generator.  Let’s hear those life lessons from Mom!

    Mom taught me, both in words and through her great example, faith, honor, love of oneself, the value of hard work, and dedication. It was just my mom and I growing up. She was everything for me. I will never forget the countless hours we spent around the kitchen table in our apartment in NYC, talking about just anything. Well, in reality, it was mostly ME talking about everything to her and she listening with undivided attention and love. It was in these moments that we laughed together, cried together, learned from each other, and so much more. At this table, she helped me as a kindergardener all the way to my high schools days with ever a homework assignment or project…and later, it was I helping her through her homework as she pursued a college degree. I am 4-ever thankful to the wonderful mother that I was blessed with. Te Amo Mami!! RIP.
