Honoring Our Mothers: Mother’s Day competition


Mother’s Day is nearly here. What better way to thank our mothers for everything they’ve done for us than by reflecting on all the wonderful mothers out there.

Mothers have a strong impact on our lives. Many even say that “mother knows best.”

Whether they are, in fact, our grandmothers, our aunts or our own mothers, all leave us with lasting impressions of the advice and wisdom they share.

Growing up, I remember listening to my grandmother recall her childhood, and learning about my own history. On my first day of school, I remember my mother’s hug and her words of encouragement, reassuring me that everything would be OK. I know that – even today – I can always count on these great women in my family.

Mothers around the world have a huge influence on our lives. It’s always important to show our appreciation for all they do.

This Sunday, May 12, is their special day in the US, but at MyHeritage we recognize that all mothers deserve the best.

To celebrate Mother’s Day, we have a bouquet of flowers, a box of chocolates and a MyHeritage Premium Plus subscription to give to one lucky mother.

All you need to do is nominate a mother who has had a big impact on your life, and tell us in 10 or fewer words, why they deserve to win the prize.

Leave a comment below, on Facebook, Google+ or tweet us with your answer. We’ll share the best stories – and the winner – in our special Mother’s Day post.

All mothers around the world are important, so even if you are in another country, feel free to join in.

To sweeten the celebration, we’re offering a 36% discount for MyHeritage Mother’s Day gifts to all mothers for a limited time. Do you want to learn about the family legacy of your mother, grandmother or great-grandmother, or about the lives of women generations before you?

Take a trip down memory lane and discover your family history, share your family memories and build your family tree together with your mother.

We look forward to reading your nominations. Good luck!

    I want to nominate my daughter as a WONDERFUL mother. She is a true MIRACLE. She has overcome child abuse, Bi-Polar Manic Depressive Diagnosis, Skitzophrenic Disorder to be the MOST loving mother to two of her adorable, kind, loving children. They are models of compassion and she taught it. I want to admire a hero. Who struggled against all odds to be the most wonderful mother. Ask her kids. They will tell you how loving and kind she is.
