Mother’s Day Giveaway Yahoo!

May 1, 2008

365 /77

Since I post a photo everyday, I thought this photo contest would be my kind of thing.  FiveMinutesForMom.com and Egg Beaters are giving away $1000.00 for a photo that tells some story of what motherhood means to you.

The deadline is Friday May 2, at noon.  On May 2nd, they will post the fifteen finalists along with a survey box for everyone to vote for their favorite.  Sounds fun right?  So get your photo in before tomorrow!

Now to the photo-s.  You know I can’t just post one if there is more than one worthy to post.  Sarah snapped these shots of Belle and I.   My only regret is that all of my children were not in the photos.   A single mama always needs one child to hold the camera if there is no place to rest it.

There are so few moments that my wee Bella wants to cuddle.  I snatch up every one and hold it close.  The moments are fleeting.  She far from the affectionate type that a mother hoped her last child would be, but rather on the go, with little time or need for a mommy kiss.  I breathe her in when she allows it, but it never lasts long enough.  Oh if time would just stand still.



 Now the big news is…..Carrie is giving away a custom portrait! 

To enter, just write about Carrie’s giveaway to give her some advertising and then link your post to her post here.   Then go over to Carrie’s blog and link up to Mr. Linky at the bottom of her post with your post.  Did you get all that?  If not, read her post.  She will explain it better than what my tired head can.
