Do you have a fierce Mama Bear in your life?
It could be your own mother or grandmother, a friend, a colleague; a mom you admire because its clear she goes above and beyond to support, comfort and love the “kids” in her life.
My friends at Helzberg Diamonds (they are the awesome folks who sent me a beautiful pair of diamond earrings last year for my 40th!) just kicked off a program leading up to Mother’s Day to honor the strong Mama Bears in our lives. Its giving back just a bit of the love that they give to others each day. And really, what mama doesn’t like jewelry?! 😉

So what about me? Who do I nominate?
I MUST nominate my own mom JoEllen. I can say without a doubt that she is the most loving mother and woman I know. The term “unconditional love” truly isn’t big enough for her. She is my fiercest supporter and cheerleader, whether quiet or vocal I know she is there always rooting for me. Her love is in action. Her love is in words. Her love is something that I celebrate and aspire to emulate with my own family. And man, I hope she wins a Bear Hug because she sooo deserves it.
Here she is supporting me as always by buying not one but two Butterfly Blogger t-shirts for my suicide prevention fundraising. Is she a blogger?! No, but that didn’t stop her!
Ack! That just made me cry a little. Love you Mom!
