My Memory of Mom: Making Her Proud

Written by Pam Jacobs on April 29, 2011

We spend our whole lives being influenced by our mothers…running to them with our problems, our worries, trying to always make them proud.

My best memory of Mom is the day when I was about 45 years old.

My mom said, “Hey, I just want to tell you how proud I am of the person you have become.

“You are so warm and loving to everyone, so helpful and friendly.

“So non-judgmental and willing to go the extra mile for people you don’t even know…you make me so proud!”

I have to tell you…it meant so much to me.

Miss you and love you, Mom.

My Memory of Mom: The Day She Became Sober

Written by Sunshine Diaz on April 27, 2011

My memory of my mommy is a fond one.

I remember the day we sat on the porch crying. My Dad had just left us with my little brother in the house we had been living in for five years.

We had no electricity for three years, no gas for two, and never knew what a phone or television was.

Drugs had taken over.

The day my Dad left, my Mom and I at there alone. . .foodless. . .moneyless. . .alone.

In that moment my Mom became a MOM.

She said, “When the smoke clears, we will see the light!”

That day was 13 years ago. She has been sober since then, and has been the Mom I always needed.

It was a miracle we were never taken away, but I am so glad for that.

We became strong women together, and I will never forget her for that.

Thanks, Mommy!

What is The Inspiring Moment?

Written by Braiden on April 26, 2011

Take a minute. . .

Think about your life. . .

And recognize that even in today’s rush-rush, work-a-day world, there are inspiring moments in each and every day.

These inspiring moments can be found almost anywhere, and are just waiting to be captured for eternity by a quick cellphone photo or video.


And set your sights on a bank of fluffy clouds.

Or the setting sun.


To discover the way autumn leaves form a colorful pattern on the sidewalk.


And marvel at how a spider spins her web in an urban environment.

Or the stark beauty of a winter beach.

Once you’ve captured your own Inspiring Moment photo, upload it in the simple submittal form, and share it with all.

We are happy to list the photographer’s name as a photo credit and link back to his or her Web site.

Five More Minutes with my Grandfather

Written by Peter L. Mosca on April 25, 2011

I left my Grandfather who was in a Florida hospital, tubes and other apparatus connected to him, to go back home to New Jersey to work.

Can you imagine? It hurts me to this day.

What a horrible decision. He died weeks later.

The only saving grace was that he did meet his only great-grandchild at the time.
