Mother's Day Book and Candy Giveaway
Mothers are often overlooked, underrated, and underestimated, but my mother is my hero. She has gone about her life quietly, never boasting or bragging. She has always done her job as a wife and mother without asking for, or expecting, any special praise or credit. When you ask her if there is anything she'd like to have for her birthday, or Christmas, or Mother's Day, she'll say, "I can't think of anything. I have everything I need." She is the rock of our family, although she probably isn't even aware of it. When my dad was alive, he always credited much of his success to her because she stood by him, supported him in everything he did, and never complained when times got hard. (Gosh, how I wish I could be more like her!) He also said that he believed women were stronger than men. He had a great deal of respect for her too. If you were to judge a person's success in life by their friends, then my mother has been wildly successful even though she still lives a very simple life.
Well, I could go on and on about my wonderful mother. What I really set out to say is that in honor of Mother's Day, I am giving away an autographed copy of my latest novel, The Last Rodeo, and a box of chocolates. If you'd like a chance at the drawing, which I'll hold on May 2nd, here's how to enter:
1. Make a comment on this blog post that you are entering your name for the drawing.
2. Make sure you have a blog or facebook email where you can be reached.
3. Be a follower (not a requirement but I'd love to have you).
This will be a drawing, not a contest, but I'd love to hear why your mother is your hero. You may post this giveaway on your blog.
Thanks for participating!
