If you want to be happy, just make the world a better place.
Washington, DC (Vocus) October 19, 2010
We all know at least one incredible mother who balances it all: A social life, a spiritual life, her job, her family, and her bank accounts. Even more impressive is she manages to do this while also making time to volunteer or head up organizations to help others. These women are an inspiration and we wish we could honor them for the beautiful people they have become and all that they have achieved.
American Mothers, Inc., is a nationwide organization dedicated to the spirit and multi-faceted job of motherhood. AMI is now soliciting nominations for the 2011 Mother of the Year and Young Mother of the Year Awards. To qualify for these awards, the nominees must first and foremost be involved and loving mothers.
