Three Mother’s Day finalists have been selected from those who entered the Love is all around DB competition in April. In honour of Mother’s Day on May 12, Around DB has the pleasure of sharing the finalists’ photos and stories through which they reveal what makes their mum so special.
1st Prize: Tracy Fleming
My Mom, the comet. I am eternally grateful for my unique, spectacular one-in-a-million Mom Carolyn Nelson. She brightens up every room she enters and can enthrall you with historical facts while line dancing to Bruno Mars. She has never met a stranger and enjoys talking with everyone who is lucky enough to sit by her on the bus. She can make you feel like a king or a queen and would give you her last coin if you needed it. Fiercely loving and loyal; I wish I was more like my Mom.
2nd Prize: Madison Ong
My mother is the most solicitous mother I have ever seen. She has a calm personality and consistently tries her best to control her emotions. She’s an impeccably caring woman who looks after me at all costs. She tells me stories nearly every day and does a tremendous amount of research about children’s education and development. She sometimes even gets sick for taking care of me. My mother wants me to find learning gratifying so she registered me in several extra curriculums I enjoy. In conclusion, my mother takes outstanding care of me and she’s always the wind beneath my wings.
3rd Prize: Rod Adrianne
My mom, Nery Palic, is a helper in Discovery Bay. She is a single mom who is raising me, her 10-year-old son by herself. I know it is hard for her as a single mom to be away from me, especially without any financial or moral support from my father. But she wants to give me a better future, to give me what I want and need, and that’s all that matters. And I know she will do anything for me as long as I live.
