Why my mom, Oralia Lopez, is so special

With most contests, the competition tends to be about the photo itself: the shot, the subject, the composition.

But what's not beautiful about Mom?

The woman who raised you. The woman who taught you wrong from right (or tried to, at least).

The woman who still calls to check on you and knows the magic words to making you feel all better.

We received a nice array of photos of your mothers. Some people gave shout outs of love, while others told stories of how their Moms have impacted their lives.

The stories behind these mothers and all they do for their children were powerful. One woman teaches her children as her late mother taught her.

Another story keeps it simple - "Love you, Mom!"

Clearly, all mothers are true winners, and Mother's Day is not the only day we should be reminded.
