ENTER TO WIN $250: FTD’s #100Moms ‘Share Your Story’ Is Amazing!


I love my mom. She has been one of my best friends. There’s so much I can say, probably hundreds of things, so I made a little video about some of the things she’s said in the past that have stuck with me and made me a little bit stronger and got me a little more preparer for life. I’ve never told her that these little quotes circle around in my head from time to time. Maybe I should send her this video!! LOL! Truly, I’m so happy that FTD decided to create “Share Your Story” giving us all such a great forum to honor mom on this 100th anniversary of Mother’s Day!!!

Check out my video here!!! Let me know what you think…I’m sure you have tons to say, too!!!

Ok, you’ve seen my video. Now, it’s your turn to make your mom feel great, too!  Tell FTD and me about your mom and all the great things she’s done for you or what she means to you! If you want to share a story about your mom, please visit the FTD.com Mother’s Day page and their Share Your Story page where the top 100 stories will win a $50 FTD gift card!! I know it will be tough, but try to keep it all in 200 words or less. Then, please do me a favor…once you enter, stop back here on LAB and leave a comment letting me know that you’ve shared your story with FTD.

  11. My mother grew to be my friend and running buddy. I had her for over 65 years of my life and I am thankful to the Lord above for her . I lost her March 19, 2014 and miss her so very much but know I will see her again. She faced life with a smile and jealously guarded her family and took care of my brother and I teaching us both to be good people. Her faith was her strongest point and her love of life was a pure joy to be around. She could be tough and was a firm believer in doing what we wanted to do in life even if she knew it was wrong, We were allowed to grow by our mistakes. I only hope my sons feel the same way about me before and after I pass. Wish I could present flowers to her personally but she knows!

    No I did not post a picture because my mom passed away almost 8 years ago but I still try to do something each mothers day to honor her because she was an amazing woman.
