My inspiration.

She has the biggest heart of anyone I know.

She will drop everything to help a friend or family member in need.

She taught me that we should all give back and help those less fortunate.

And that we should all work hard, be honest, and stay true to ourselves.

She encouraged me to be creative and use my imagination. My ability to figure things out is a direct result of her teaching me to be resourceful - instead of being lazy and letting someone do it for me.

She can get a house ready for company in 5 minutes flat. And plan a dinner party in 10.

She's the woman you want on your committee. She gets things done.

Need a party planned? She's your gal.

Need a shoulder to cry on. She's a great listener.

Need someone to laugh with? To dance with? To act goofy and be silly with? She's always game.

Who is this fantastic person?

She's my mom.

She is my inspiration and my biggest fan.

So what should I get this amazing person for Mother's day? How about something from the Macy's Heart of Haiti collection. I think she would love that.
