With Mother's Day just around the corner a lot of people are having contest that are centered around that. And the ladies over at Five Minutes for Mom are hosting a Photo Contest theme just about motherhood. Get ready for this prize!!!! A $1,000 American Express Gift Card–Sponsored by Egg Beaters to spend any way you want! Five Minutes for Mom are looking for your photos that you feel tell a story about motherhood. You can put up a picture of your mother, grandmother, yourself, or your kids.

SO, picking just one photo is very hard for me! My mother passed away in Aug. of 2007 so I want to put EVERY photo that I have of her up. Because thats all I have left, and they are my memories, my link to her. She was a wonderful person through and through. And the best mother any child could ever ask for. As I've been looking for just the right photo I think, "Well I want to put that one up because it shows this side of her, or that side of her." So selecting this photo has been very very hard for me. So I hope that it does show the world what Motherhood is all about!
This is my mother with my brother on his 6th birthday. She dressed up like a clown, went to his school and sang and danced and did the whole 9 yards not just for him but his whole class. How I feel this is motherhood at its finest is because a mother does anything for her child and LOVES doing it. Loves seeing the joy that they put apon their childs face when they do silly things like dress up like a clown and come to your class.

Here's are the details about the contest
*If you are a blogger, post your photo on your site and then you need to go back to Five Minutes for Mom and link your post back to them. If your post on your blog, you may explain why the photo says motherhood or just let the photo speak for its self.
*If you are not a blogger - you can still play!!! Just email us your photo, with the subject line Photo Contest, to 5minutesformom @ gmail dot com. (Please add your image into the copy of the email so that we do not have to open attachments.)
*On May 2nd, fifteen finalists will be posted along with a survey box for everyone to vote for their favorite. If you are selected as a finalist, feel free to announce it on your blog, facebook, twitter, etc and get your friends to vote for you. That is fair game.
Voting will close May 9th at 9:00pm EST. We will announce the winner on Mothers Day May 11th.

That is a great story with a great photo!

I'm so sorry to hear that your mother has passed away - my husband's mother passed away the year before we were married and it has been hard for him to not have her to call and that she isn't here for our daughter to know and love

Thanks for stopping by my blog!
