That Is Love

Standard

Inspirational QuoteWhat do I love about this inspirational quote? It is about all kinds of love: romantic, friendship, empathetic. Watching your child laugh and play can fill your heart. Your cat purring with contentment can do the same. A stranger dancing with joy at a concert makes you love the show all the more. When you can fill your life with love and happiness just by feeling it through another, you have won the love lottery.  ❤

These 5 Hero Moms Will Give You Extra Reason to Celebrate Mother’s Day

Standard

  I consider my Mom a hero. The advocating for ME and Autism she does is amazing. She is the one person I can count on to show understanding and unconditional love to a daughter who’s road is rocked by chronic illness. All my love, Mom, today and always.

The following story is from “Time”

Written by  @tcberenson

From saving a drowning couple to rescuing kids from a bear

It’s true that every mother is a hero, which is why we have Mother’s Day. It’s just one small day of the year for people to appreciate everything mothers do for their families. But it’s also true that all acts of maternal heroism are not created equal. Dealing with the daily challenges of raising kids is one thing, but saving children from a bear is quite another. So here, in honor of Mother’s Day, we present five hero moms of the year.

  • The Mom Who Rescued Her Kids With a Pizza Hut Order

    Cheryl Treadway was being held hostage with her children in Florida and figured out how to escape — using an order from Pizza Hut.

With Treadway’s boyfriend holding her and her three children their home at knifepoint this week, Treadway ordered from Pizza Hut on her phone and asked, in the comments section, for someone to call 911.

Thanks to Treadway’s creative thinking, an employee at Pizza Hut called the police, who then rescued the family.

 **********************
  • That resolve ended up being life-saving when she saw a couple drowning off the coast of Cancun last December. There was no lifeguard on duty, so Loiselle, a single mother of two, dove in herself, swam out and brought the couple safely to shore.“Words cannot describe my gratitude but I’ll try,” the man said in an interview. “You saved my girlfriend’s life and most certainly mine too.”Calgary woman rescues, rescues couple, coast of Ca

    • The Mom Who Got Her Family Out of a Burning House

      Morgan Stone, mother of five, had only seconds to spare to get her entire family out of their Indiana home before it was engulfed in flames last December.“It took me a second to really realize what was happening. When I opened the bedroom door and it was full of smoke, it took me a minute to grasp that this was a serious house fire,” Stone said.She sprang into action and got her five kids, her father-in-law and her pets out of the house before the whole structure burned.“He says I’m a hero,” Stone said of her fiancé, “But I don’t think I’m a hero, I’m just a mom who got my kids out safely—nothing means more to me than them.”

      The Mom Who Saved Her Neighbor’s Kids From a Bear

Candace Gama saw her neighbor’s 6-year-old sons waiting for their school bus. Then she saw the bear.

The black bear was about 20 yards away, so Gama drove her car between the bear and the kids and yelled at them to get in the car. Then to speed things up, she grabbed the boys by their backpacks and dragged them inside.

According to a local Montana newspaper, Gama’s 5-year-old daughter said her mom was the hero of the day.

The Pregnant Mom Who Saved Her Family After a Terrible Car Crash

 

Erika Grow’s car hit black ice on the road in Wyoming last November and flipped three times, throwing her husband and sister from the car and leaving her two young children trapped in the back.

Even though she was eight months pregnant, Grow was able to clamber to the backseat and unbuckle her children, ages 3 and 21 months. She put them in suitcases to keep them warm in the freezing Wyoming weather.

Grow’s husband and sister went to the hospital, but her two children and unborn baby were unharmed.
