Washington Family Magazine : May 2016
10 May 2016 washingtonFAMILY.com hen you think of a mother what comes to mind? The person you call when you have good news? The person who holds you while you cry? The person who worked hard and handled the housework and the bills while somehow simultaneously keeping up with everyone’s schedules? No matter what your memory conjures when you think of the word “mom,” there’s no denying they work hard and make incredible sacrifices every day. They care for us when we’re sick, pack hundreds of school lunches, help us with our homework and make sure we have everything we need. As we grow up, they’re only a phone call away for advice and motherly wisdom. Washington FAMILY Magazine thinks moms are not celebrated nearly enough for all they do for their workplaces, families and communities. They’ve given so much, and we think it’s time we showed them some well-deserved recognition! We asked our readers to nominate a mom in their lives they felt deserved this honor. We had an influx of entries, all describing amazing and talented local mothers. These 12 women have persevered, overcome, created and inspired. Each of them has a unique story to tell, and we’re excited to have the chance to share them with you. Meet our Moms of the Year!
