GCW photo contest: Let’s hear it for mom!

On May 12, we recognize that not all heroes wear capes. Many of them answer to “Mom,” and their amazingness isn’t always honored as it should be. Mother’s Day is the perfect opportunity to celebrate motherhood and the special bond between moms and their children. In that spirit, we asked you to share some of your favorite mom-centric photos, and we were deeply touched by all the sweet snapshots. Here are some of our favorites:


“I’m thankful to be a mother because I get to experience a love like no other. Despite how crazy and chaotic motherhood can be, it is the most beautiful and worthwhile journey I’ve ever been on! My biggest accomplishment by far has been bringing my baby boy into this world.” – Lisa Brackeen


“Motherhood is the most rewarding hat to wear. It has its challenges, but it’s the greatest blessing given to me. My daughter has allowed me to see things in a different lens. Her jovial spirit is what keeps me going! To be someone’s hero or the apple to their eye is the best feeling in the world. She is my firstborn. She is who gave me the title mommy. I will forever be grateful for my wildflower.” – Kyla Jacobs


“One of my favorite photos of myself and my three beautiful daughters, who are more precious than jewels! I’m thankful and blessed that God allowed me to be their mother! They are all between seven to eight years apart, and I have enjoyed watching them grow up and succeed in their lives. It makes me so happy, and I’m so proud of each of them!” – Darlene Adams


“My four beautiful daughters. Two of whom are now beautiful moms themselves.” – Eleva Howard


“My mom had me at a very young age, and we weren’t always very close. I’m so thankful for my mom, though, who today has become one of my very best friends. We talk every day. It hasn’t always been an easy walk in the park, but I’m very proud of where we are today.” – Chantelle Lynn Tiblier


“My mom — regardless of my age, I will always be her little girl. Our bond is incredibly special, and she is the first person I turn to, whether for good news or bad. She’s my rock, my support system, and I feel incredibly fortunate to be her daughter.” – Jennifer Sandmann


“My mom is my hero and inspired me to be who I am today. I am so incredibly thankful that God chose her to be my mother. I admire her strength and her immense love for all four of her children. She is a true steel magnolia, and I love her dearly.” – Tess O’Keefe Lawrence


“Me and my boys — these three are truly my lifelines. I never imagined I’d be a boy mom because I’m so girly. Not only do I have one prince, I have three!!! These three make every day an adventure, and I never know which one is going to make me cry tears of joy, laughter or frustration each day. One thing I know is that they will make me shed those tears daily. These are my three P’s: my Preston, Parker and Paxton — the reason my heart beats, and the reason my head hurts. I’m completely, utterly over the moon for my little men.” – AJenay Dedeaux
