Announcing Our Memory of Mom (MoM) Contest Winner

Written by Maelyn Lessard on May 8, 2011

Congratulations to Maelyn Lessard, our Memory of Mom (MoM) contest winner.

For her excellent efforts, she wins a sweet quartet of cherry chocolates from our friends at the Chukar Cherry Co.

Here’s her story, which first posted on April 15:

My best memory that I share with my Mom is when I gave birth to my daughter.

I called when I was in labor but I went fast.

I was living in North Carolina and she was in Melbourne, Florida.

She drove all night and arrived at 7a.m.

I was sitting in bed holding my new baby girl and she walked in crying.

I cry thinking of the moment we all held each other for the first time.

It is a moment you cannot describe because it was filled with so much love and emotion.

We have since moved to Melbourne and have shared many things, but that moment is truly just ours.
