With Mother's Day coming up this weekend (hi Kate and Drew!) I have to share a story I got from a young woman whose mother should be very proud of her. It almost moved me to tears....in fact, here it is and thanks to Jessica for sending it!
I realize that you must constantly receive hundreds of messages on a day to day basis. Please just hear me out. I am 18 years old and currently live in Park City, Utah. My mom, Laurie, is a personal trainer out of her own gym. She took her class win and the overall win in her first figure competition around the age of 43. She is currently 46 years old, with 3 kids (27, 18 and 15) and still continues to strive for excellence in the fitness world. I understand that, because she is my mother, it's easy for me to talk highly of her achievements. However, I would be happy to e-mail pictures and information about her just to prove how much of an inspiration this woman is, not only as a mother, but also as an influence to be healthy and fit. She is my motivation every single day and I can't ask for anything more than having the editors of Oxygen read over my message and hopefully take an interest in getting to know her. She deserves this chance and I know she could motivate your readers as well.
Thank you for your time,
