Ally Donnelly: My mom is one of the strongest women I know. Through adversity, she taught her six kids to power through. She dragged us along on wacky adventures – I once slept on a low-slung, chicken-wire bed as rodents ran beneath us in a lean-to campsite along the Appalachian Trail. She was not an experienced hiker/camper and only brought one of those thin blankets with satin trim that she had grabbed from home to keep us warm. What she lacked in preparation she made up in gumption. We later ate Wheat Thins and summer sausage on one of the most beautiful vistas I have ever seen. My mom taught me to laugh long and hard and stop to smell the roses … and I do!

Katherine Underwood: My inspiration, my super woman, my best friend... My mom, Vanessa Underwood (pictured here with me and my sister Caroline), is a three-time kidney transplant recipient and a cancer survivor. She's proof that staying positive, being thankful for what you have, and living an active lifestyle can carry you through life's hardest times. She'll tell you it hasn't been easy, and she hasn't smiled through it all - but she's smiling now, and I am so lucky to smile with her. My mom's struggles have taught our family to enjoy life's little gifts, and to cherish every single day. For that, Mom, "thank you" will never be enough. I love you! Happy Mother's Day!

Brian Shactman: This picture from my sister’s wedding is from one of the sunnier days of my youth. It is not like my childhood was bad. In fact, it was a relatively normal and healthy upbringing in Swampscott, Massachusetts. But as the youngest of three “active” kids, I (we) often drove my mother pretty crazy. One classic (and shareable) story is that, often, when she left the house, we would move the living room furniture, roll up a few pair of socks (or use a hockey ball) and play knee hockey. Perhaps the only really nice item left in the living room was the glass cover for the fireplace. Of course, you know what’s coming. One errant slapshot, and that thing was smashed. Of all the things in that room, that was one we could not cover up. In the past, we’d glue vases, patch up baskets and flip around lampshades. But this one was unavoidable … and it was our last knee hockey game in that living room - at least as far as she knows. So Mom, it’s good to see you smiling here.
Alison King/necn
Alison King: My mother, Nancy Moffitt King (pictured here with me at my bridesmaid luncheon in 1999) has been the strongest role model in my life and is the best person I know. She exudes kindness, warmth and compassion – qualities that made her a fantastic nurse, her career until raising four children. Mom got a Master's degree from Columbia University at a time when many women didn't go to college and she always taught her kids to shoot for the stars, to be adventurous in life, but mostly to treat people of all stripes with respect and dignity. She also has a silly streak and the two of us can break into peels of laughter over the most ridiculous things. I love you Mom. Happy Mother’s Day!
Jackie Bruno/necn
Jackie Bruno: My mother, Denise, is my best friend. On my wedding day, she was not only the mother of the bride, but also my matron of honor. She's been there for all the best times in my life and all the tough times too. She has taught me how to be a mother to my new son Jack.

Latoyia Edwards: I'm the oldest of my Mom's 7 children but she always took time to make me feel special. She attended every basketball game, school play, and speech competition. I aspire to be the same encouraging Mom that she is. I love her so much.

Leslie Gaydos
Leslie Gaydos says: "As a mom myself now, I wonder how my mother ever found the time to do all the things she did! I'm not sure I'll ever measure up to her, but I keep trying. Mom has been slowed down by a stroke, but she keeps laughing and is looking forward to her upcoming 90th birthday."
Alysha Palumbo/necn
Alysha Palumbo: My mom Kathy Palumbo is the reason I am the person I have become. She has been my biggest cheerleader, my most constructive critic, my friend and my role model. Holiday photos like the one above became a ritual in our family. My mom insisted on them on any special occasion. Usually the photo shoot would end in tears and maybe a fight or two, but the photos through the years are irreplaceable memories. Now that I'm a mom to my 3-year-old son Bryce and my mom is a Grammy, I am proudly following in her footsteps creating similar memories with my own family.

Kathryn Sotnik: My mom is the most gentle, caring, selfless and loving mother anyone could ask for. I have three sisters. She raised us to be strong, independent women. She can always be counted on for a laugh, advice, or some excellent home cooking! We named our daughter, Jackie, after her. In the summer we like to go the beach in Narragansett, Rhode Island. We also get clam cakes and chowder, ice cream, and shop. She also sneaks away to Florida every winter for one month.
