I take care of my family by following a strict organic diet with lots of raw foods, grass fed meats and wild fish. I think what makes me an awesome mom is the fact that I'm always looking for ways to improve my family's health by choosing non-gmo items and good for us menu option for the week.

MY MOTHER IS AWESOME BECAUSE SHE HAS BEEN BY MY SIDE SINCE THE BEGINNING. GROWING UP AS A CHILD, I ALWAYS HAD HER LOVE, SUPPORT, AND ENCOURAGMENT TO BECOME A SUCCESSFUL INDIVIDUAL IN SOCIETY. I HAVE ACHIEVED MANY OF MY EDUATIONAL GOALS AND CAREER GOALS WITH MY MOTHER'S ADVICE AND HER ALONG SIDE ME EVERY STEP OF THE WAY. MY MOTHER CONTINUES TO BE A POSITIVE DRIVING FORCE IN MY LIFE, AND I WOULD NOT HAVE BECOME THE YOUNG LADY THAT I AM TODAY WITHOUT HER. NOW THAT I'M A NEW MOTHER OF A 2 YEAR OLD SON, I SEE HER SHOWING THAT SAME LOVE, SUPPORT AND ENCOURAGEMENT WITH MY SON. I LOVE MY MOTHER DEARLY AND I SALUTE AND THANK HER EVERY SINGLE DAY FOR THE BEING THE BEST MOTHER IN THE ENTIRE WORLD.

My mom is an awesome mom because she's tough when it comes to our health - make sure we eat enough and that we take care care of ourselves. She's a determined lady who has taken care of 7 children, now has 19 grandchildren and a dozen great grandchildren.

This sounds like it would be a fun event, but I guess that you only appreciate the moms that do not work, because the moms that have to work and be moms will be at their jobs from 10 am - 1 pm.

It's too bad that all of moms who work the 9-5 workdays hours to feed our families won't be able to participate.

I am an awesome Mom because all six of my children can cook so they can be awesome parents too. Nothing brings a family together quite the same as a good meal enjoyed together.

What makes me an awesome mom is how hard I work everyday so I can make it home to my sweet boy. Which, of course means I won't be able to make it in for your non-9-5-mom celebration.

My mom is so giving. She would give her last dime to make sure her children were taken care of. She is eighty years young! She is so active, nothing keeps her down! She never thinks of herself, everyone comes first. I love my mom she truly is the best mom!

I have the best mom! I could never have gotten through my life being diagnosed with a rare cancer as a child and battling it up into my adulthood, without the love and support of my mom! She's the strongest woman I know!

My wife is the most greatest mom to our daughter she teaches, plays, and loves her all day till she falls asleep at night. She was in labor with her for 30 hours until exactly 3 a.m. when on March 10, Sophia Grace was born. I can never imagine how it felt or imagine the feelings you were going through those long 9 months but what I can do is say how much I appreciate you. Give you lots of love on your special day and through the rest of our years together. I love you so much. Always And Forever! XOXOXOXO

My Mom isn't perfect, but God chose her to be my Mom. That's the closes to perfection that I will get. My Mom still bakes cookies and sweet treats, cooks the most healthiest and delightful meals, makes her adult children care packages, spoils her grandchildren as she should, continuously gives to others. She's a pretty great Mom!

I am a great mom, because I am nothing like my mother was. I love my son unconditionally and help him to find his way in this world by inspiring him, supporting him and giving him all the tools he needs to be happy, secure, confident, smart and funny. He is an amazing little boy and he makes me to be a better person.

Yikes, guys. I like Whole Foods a lot, and I suppose it's nice you're recognizing Mother's Day at all . . . but throwing a Mother's Day event that leaves out many of the mothers who work outside the home (and/or whose transportation leaves them unable to arrive at a grocery store right at 10 a.m. to get a goody bag) seems like a fatally dumb idea. To rectify the situation, you should do at least two "Mom-O-Ramas" at different times of day.

Thank you for celebrating moms! I lost mine when I was 11 but I can only hope to be 1/10th as strong and loving as she was. Happy Mother's day to all! oh and please don't be bitter if you are working and unable to make it to WF. Stay at home mom's are working full-time too. Whether at home or at your work-place, I hope you can take a little break to come hang out at WF :)

I am awesome because I stayed home with my baby for the past year, taking care of her practically every second of the day.. I quit my very good job to make sure all of her needs were put first in every way.. and this baby does not sleep for more than 3 hours at a time.. since birth.. I love her!
