World's Greatest Mom

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen,
Thank you for allowing me the honor of coming before you to announce the award winner of World's Greatest Mom. This was a very tough competition seeing that the Rock Church has some of the greatest moms ever known to mankind. After hours and hours of analyzing the contestants we realized that there was one mother that was especially deserving of this award. This mother has shown great strength in times of struggle; this strength has come from many hours on her face seeking God. Her top priorities are God and her children. She is very giving of herself. Many times has she put her needs aside for the needs of others. Most people know her as one of the kindest persons they have ever met. She is always smiling... even when she isn't happy. One of the best things about this lady is she is still a kid at heart. Even though she is older she is still doing flips on the monkey bars and racing the other kids on the playground. Most importantly she has taught her children that nothing matters without God. By living a Godly life she has set the example of holiness and taught them to always have a right spirit. She taught them to have faith in God even in the little things. Example: One night this mother and her daughters and a few others were playing Monopoly and everyone was cheating. She looked at everyone and said "I don't have to cheat to win, all I have to do is pray." She proceeded to pray while everyone laughed. She finished praying and said, "I have faith in God and He will answer my prayers." And do you know what?? He did answer her prayers. That night she taught her children and everyone else that God even cares about the little things. If we will put our faith in Him, He will bring it to pass no matter how big or how small. This is just a small summary of why we picked this mother out many. I know that you are all wondering who this great woman is.... The award winner is none other than Norma Cabral!!!! Congratulations!!! To all of the mothers out there Happy Mother's Day!!!!
She is going to kill me for posting this picture... Love you mom!!! :)

HAHA Hilarious story! I love your mom's child-like faith in God. Hey, we thought of her tonight! We had some authentic Mexican food in Old Town San Diego - I ordered a half dozen tortillas "on the side"... they reminded us of your mom.

Happy Mother's Day Sis. Norma!

Aw, your mom is so sweet, smiling, and complimentary all of the time! She's always ready to give out hugs, too. I'll have to disagree though, I think the award went to Cheryl Stimers as the best mother, but that's ok...hahahahhaa! Just teasin!
(By the way, sometime I'd love to eat some more of that amazing Mexican food your mom makes!)
