Oralia Lopez had no idea her daughter submitted a story about how much she means to her.

"I'm speechless," Lopez said choking back tears. "It's very nice. I didn't know they had done that. I'm very touched."

Lopez, of Victoria, was elated about winning the Advocate's Mother's Day photo contest.

Lopez said being a mother is about love.

"Always be there for them, no matter what the situation is," she said. "It takes a lot to be there for them."
