Congratulations to Kathy Lane of FishHawk Ranch, one of five winners in Patch's recent contest !
We asked readers in our 19 Patch towns here in Florida to tell us what makes their mom so special. We got some amazing responses and chose five commenters at random to reward with a $500 gift card.
Here was Kathy's response:
I had a favorite doll, my Raggedy Anne, who went everywhere with me. She would ride in the basket of my bike as we rode all over the neighborhood, I would play with her for hours, she never left my side. Because of this, my constant companion looked a little rough around the edges. My precious Mother would meticulously mend my doll, her face, hair and even her little body complete with embroidering a red heart. The care that should took with my darling doll is the same care she took with me. I still have my darling doll and she sits in a place of honor on a little shelf in my bedroom and every time I see her, I can feel the love of my Mother shining through her little black button eyes!
Congrats to Kathy and the rest of our winners, and thank you all for sharing. And happy Mother's Day!
