Mother, when used as a verb, means “to care for and protect with kindness and affection”. It’s sort of our superpower. But sometimes even the strongest of mothers need to be mothered themselves. Meet the three winners of Bergen Mama’s Ultimate Mother’s Day Pampering Giveaway. These ladies, who have endured hardship with a smile and who give so much of themselves every other day of the year, will each receive the gift of a day just for them. They’ll be indulged with a massage from Massage Envy Closter, a luxe organic mani/pedi from our pals over at Karma Organic, a sleek blowout from the dolls at Bisous Beauty Bar and a gift card to the skin gurus over at EstheticaMD where they will leave glowing.
We wish them and all of our readers the happiest of Mother’s Days!
Read on to hear about their amazing stories.
Mother's Day is a tough holiday for me since I lost my mom 2 years ago. I suffer from depression and have fallen apart, neglecting myself because every ounce of energy I can muster goes towards taking care of my 2 boys and husband. I have finally made a vow to my family to try to take of myself as they grow increasingly worried about me. When I just saw your contest and read through the prize, I felt something inside me stir, a feeling of longing for something that I haven't felt in years. My mother's day wish for myself is to do something for myself that will make me feel better and get me back on track with my life so I don't miss another precious moment that I have been given. Winning this contest would be amazing, but even if I don't, I want to thank you for the spark of hope you have given me. Thank you for holding a fabulous contest and have a Happy Mother's Day!
