Contest Winner! Finally!

I think I called Grandma Martha four times today to check on her contest judging progress.

It was slow going.  She broke them down into categories and narrowed the comments down to 67.

She called her eye doctor to order a new pair of glasses and decided there are a lot of wonderful women in this world.

One entry touched her deeply and she kept going back to it.  She was amazed by this mother’s strength to endure physical pain and overcome her handicap.  Grandma Martha was also impressed that this mother’s daughter admires her so much that she calls her a hero.

Congratulations Amity!

Here is her entry:

My mom was born crippled, with her knee caps at the back of her legs instead of the front. After multiple surgeries and being apart from her parents as the Shriner’s took care of her, she spent most of her childhood in leg braces. She was also born deaf. After completing high school, going to college, getting married and having children, she never once complained about being disabled, deaf, or life in general. I have learned so much from her and I consider her my hero, the wind beneath my wings, and the best mother anyone could ask for. In the past 5 years, she has had both her knees replaced and she received a Cochlear implant. Not only can she walk around with absolutely no pain, she can hear a drop of water hitting her sink. How awesome is God??? I love my mother more than words can describe!

Grandma Martha Says May you pass on the lessons you have learned from your mom. Thank you for sharing. May God continue blessing your mom and your family.”
