Thanks for making this event open for so many hours. As a working Mom, I can easily schedule my lunch break so I can stop by and enjoy!

What makes me an awesome mom is my two grown kids! I spent their young lives "being their mom" and now I have the pleasure of being not only their mom, but one of their best friends! I lost my mom in January...I lost not only my mom, but one of my best friends as well! She was awesome because she lived her entire life for others and loved unconditionally. Being a mom is a priceless gift! If you have a mom that is still here with you, give her the gift of your time and be sure she knows what she mean to you and how much you love her! Happy Mother's Day!

I'm disappointed that Whole Foods has decided to exclude working mothers from this event, especially given the fact that - according to statistics from the Bureau of Labor Statistics - the majority of mothers do work outside the home.

What makes my mother an awesome mom? Hmmmm. My mother is an awesome mom because she is a supermom even at sixtyeight. She is a great grandmother /grandmother/ mother all in the same house. She is the mother of four adult children and has been tolerant of everyone and assisted them at one point or another to keep the family sanity. She is a return to work retiree, by choice of course, who has been self employed. Besides being a full time grandmother and mother her career history includes 43 years of nursing, 20 years gaming entertainment, 10 years of management and 5 years of temporary jobs until the next one came along. She loves being great gran/grandmother even in tough times and she still cares for an adult child who is disabled. She has 7 grandchildren, 5 great grandchildren I have much respect for her and I don't think anyone of us in the family can fill those shoes. Need a nurse?

My mom Linda Briseno, Is not only an awesome mom, but like my best friend . I don't know what I would do without her. She is has a servants heart and is both tender and strong altogether. I love her for her patience , and for always seeing the best in me. I would not trade her for the world.

My mom is awesome because of her perseverance that has never wavered, she has been my rock and the rock of others never once faltering in her selflessness. I love you Mom "Cherokee" I knew once I became a mother the unconditional love I have for my daughter would continue to make her shine brightly, and that she does I love you "Michael Armani" Being a mother is something you cannot read about, but it's something you endure to the fullest 365 days a year and seven days a week, no paid vacation but being a mother continues and will always be priceless!!! Thank you Whole Foods ;)

As others have said: What about us working mums?!!!! Why not something after work for us?

This Mom's event on 5/9 (today) was a real bust. I was very disappointed. I brought my 82 year old mother to Harry's in Alpharetta. We arrived at approximately 11:40 a.m. for the event from 10:00 a.m t 1:00 p.m.. There we very few samples and absolutely nothing special going on. When I asked at the service desk they told me there were just 50 gift bags given out and they were gone. I understand that, but there was nothing special going on for mothers....so why did you send this email? And why did we take a special trip?

I'm entering my mom because she's been through a lot growing up. She was adopted and her adopted parents died when she was very young. So she never knew her biological parents and her adopted parents past too soon. She has taken care of me and my brother through hard times. We're doing good now but when I was little she used to make my clothes for me. She was there and stood up for me when I was bullied and had a hard time being excepted growing up. I've been a vegan since I was 10 years old, I'm hypersensitive and an introvert, she has told me I'm really a unique person and to have a voice and say what I feel and to express myself. Now I'm a singer and a artist. Every single day I create art to put a smile on peoples faces. When I was little my mom was a missionary to Samoa. She started her own inner city missions too.

@JEN - Check with your local store to see what store specific events that they will host this weekend. Most of our stores will have something planned over the weekend as well, this was our national Mother's Day event.
