I've received numerous submissions, and now it's time for YOU to VOTE for the winner!
Of course, I think all these DFW mommas should win a gift card, but we can only pick one, so it's up to YOU!
Just leave a comment below with the number of the entrant you feel best deserves a gift card this Mother's Day. The votes will be tallied and the winner announced on Monday, May 13th - so get to it!
Here are the entries:
(in random order)
My sister, Tricia is a wonderful mother in addition to a multi function volunteer for the community, she is a boy scout sub leader, she helps out at her son elementary school several times a week as well as at frisco family services. In her down time if you can imagine any, she frequently helps host her sons friends for sleepovers. A busy mother with a heart of gold. I imagine the gift card would be spent on those she helps rather than herself. Go, tricia!

I'd like to nominate my wife, Roxanne. Two years after battling breast cancer while pregnant, Roxanne continues to inspire me and many others. Now cancer-free, Roxanne is a wonderful mother to our daughter, and our foster son, as well as an advocate for women battling breast cancer. She is the pillar of our household. Her strength and dedication (ok, her organization too!) help keep our household running daily. She deserves a little extra something this Mother's Day to buy herself some new training gear for the Dallas/Fort Worth Komen 3-Day Walk.

I'd like to nominate my mother, Sara for the Target gift card. She really deserves a gift. She works really hard for the local children's advocacy center and she went above and beyond being helpful when I had my first child last month. Thank you!

I'd like to nominate my mom not only because she gave birth to me but also because she has done so much more and continues to do so. I had financially ruined her, broken her trust and emotionally killed her yet she still picks up the phone and still comes to my house on weekends to help out. She is truly an amazing woman who I don't deserve to call mom.

#6.I'd like to recommend Sarah who is a McKinney, TX Mom to be. This mom to be deserves this gift card because she has waited for such a long time to have a baby. As a friend of hers for a very long time, I know she could use the gift card to buy things for the new baby when she arrives. Sarah has always been there for me and my children when times were really tough for me and I can't imagine not being for her when she needs me.
I was going through a tough time financially and Sarah loaned me money without asking for it back in return. She has tirelessly been there for all of us as we had our babies and went through out pregnancies that it fills me with joy just to see her go through her first pregnancy.
She and her husband have their own troubles but you can tell they share such a fantastic love that the new baby will be so lucky to have them as parents. She's so eager and ready to be a mom and she's so appreciative about hearing about our stories. this is why she deserves a Target Gift Card.

Thank you so much for nominating all these deserving mothers!
GOOD LUCK TO ALL!
