Giveaway: Between Me and You, Mom

Giveaway Closed
Hello everyone! You may have noticed our absence this week - we're sorry about that! But we're back now and have a great product to tell you about and also a giveaway! YEA!

The Between You and Me, Mom book is a great product. We are specifically interested in the MOM version - but they have several others as well. Inside each journal are several fun, non-sappy, and sometimes even humorous questions. Give them to the people you love and they are returned with handwritten responses. The ultimate result is a great keepsake to cherish for years to come.

Keep this gift in mind for Christmas - you could order the Daughter version and fill it out and give it to your mother - she would feel so special that you took the time to fill in all your memories of her :) AND the best part (aside from the cuteness of these books) is they are only $14.95! Super Deal!

Giveaway details: Sand Dune Books is giving a The Between You and Me, Mom book to one of our lucky readers! To enter this contest - tell us why your mom is so special to you! We'll randomly select one lucky winner for this awesome book and you'll be able to give it to your mom for her to write about you or you can fill it out and give it to your own child as a keepsake! Giveaway ends November 1st at 11:59PM CT. Winner will be announced on http://www.thetrendymommy.com/.

My mom is special to me because she made it a point to show each of her kids their unique gifts and making sure we used them generously.

Robin said...

My mom is so special to me. She always sacrificed so many things so that we would have Christmas or birthdays. I didn't know this then but have found this out since I have become a mom.

My mom is special to me because she made sure that I had an education and that I took seriously, in return for me taking school seriously. She also gave me the wonderful gift of allowing me to play Cello, an instrument that I love!

jenna said...

My mom is special for SO many reasons! Right now I just appreciate her willingness to listen to me as I struggle through life with two little boys. I appreciate that she (along with my dad) laid the wonderful foundation of Christ in my life - there is no greater gift.

My mom is special to me because she listens. Despite all of her warnings in life she has never said I told you so. Everything she does is filled with love and hope for each of us kids and grandkids. After raising us three kids and being a stay at home mom for 12 years she started her own business. Tirelessly she poured even more heart and soul into make sure we had enough toys every birthday and holiday. She has showed me what it means to be an independent woman and what strength really means.e

Baba said...

Well, I am the mom and would love to give one to my daughter with all my thoughts and wishes for her. To let her know how much I love her; I would gladly fill one out to give her to keep. Such a special gift! Thanks for the chance.

Ashley said...

My mom is special to me because when I felt like no one cared...she did. She would talk to me like a friend and/or a mother at the exact times I need them.

Mom of 3 Peas said...

My mom would come up every weekend and took time off work to help care for my son while he was in the hospital for 9 months. She is not just my mom, but my friend.

I love the idea of these books! Thanks for the chance to win one.

My mom is special for so many reasons... she was naturally the soft shoulder and one full of encouragement and love while we grew up. But she did so much more than that, which you only realize once you are older. She worked full-time, did all the 1950s typical housewife duties too, AND attended every event for us. She made us breakfast every morning, and made sure the whole family ate dinner together. She was always named 'super mom' by me and my friends. Only after I grew up, did I also realize what a great person she is - she bikes and is active, she's funny and sarcastic, she's smart and very successful at work, she loves to travel and find adventure, etc. She's awesome, and I hope to be half as great a mom and person as she is, for our son. laurachilton {at} hotmail.com

Abby said...

My mom was a very special person to me because she taught me to be myself and to never change for anyone else. She also taught me to be the mother I am today to my two beautiful girls. She sacrificed herself so that I could have things and was never selfish. I miss my mom very much and wish that she was still here today to see her new grandchild but I know that she is still proud of all of us today. Thanks so much for a great and special giveaway.

blueviolet said...

My mom is particularly special to me now because she's all I have left. I lost my dad three months ago and my heart still aches for him so much but I am so grateful that I still have my mom. She is the sweetest, most loving, most appreciative mom and she has a witty sense of humor which has been fun to see develop. I just love her to pieces.

suburban prep said...

My mother is special because it seems she was put on earth just to be a mom and a grandmother. There isn't anything she wouldn't do for her 7 children or her 9 almost 10 grandchildren. She put down what she was doing in her life when my sister went through cancer treatment with chemo and radiation and bone marrow treatment. She also dropped everything when I was diagnosed with DVT and then was in need of a blood transfusion. She has stayed home with me for the holidays when all the other members of our family went on vacation.

Tree Climbing Mom said...

My mom is the best listener and my greatest source of encouragement. I love her so much!

The Popes said...

My mom saved my life when she made the tough decision to send me to live with my dad to get away from a bad group of friends in high school. I ended up staying in the south and marrying a fabulous guy. I was able to turn my entire life around due to her sacrafice. But now we live 1200 miles away. I am forever grateful that she did what she did, but I miss her everyday. She is my best friend.

Sue said...

My Mom lives in another country, far from me, so we don't get to see each other often. For over 12 years now she has faithfully emailed me every single day! I think that's pretty remarkable! I'd love to fill up a book with all the wonderful things that I wish I could say to her in person!

What a neat idea. I love writing...I would love to win this!

csposk1823 said...

I have one of those "safe" moms - you know the kind you can call when you need to - and the "safe"feeling just comes through the phone line. We live pretty far apart, but just knowing she is there - anytime I need her, for any reason, well - that's safe.

frugallm said...

My mom is my best friend. She raised me by herself on one income, but I never felt deprived. She always did things for me for school that I would volunteer her for. She always made my Halloween costume....I could go on and on!

Oh how do I count the ways.....

My mom IS my best friend. I have tears welling up just thinking about how amazing she is. She has always put us first and never asked for anything in return. She showed me God and has helped lead me back many times. She is my rock and I appreciate her more than words could ever express!

Thanks for the chance to win this great giveaway!

Lawanda said...

This is a great giveaway. My mom is awesome. She helps me. First she helped me by teaching me to be a consistent parent. Then she has also helped me be a better wife to my dh, by example, and by her always practical advice. Some people call my mom overbearing because she likes to give advice, but I tell ya what: The woman knows what she is talking about, and I appreciate everything she has every taught me!

Peggy said...

Oh, geez, there isn't enough time or space here to tell why my mother is so special to me. She made me a person that she and I can both be proud of, and ensured the same for my kids, and our family's future generations. She makes me realize my potential.

Alyssa said...

Wow what a neat prize. My mom has helped me to be the woman I am today.

AmandaSue said...

Well I don't have a mom so I can't really answer your question, but since I was raised without a mother I know with my own children I want to be the absolute best mom I can be and to be there for them no matter what and always support them and have them know that I am proud of them always!

My mom is the greatest woman on earth. Even if she's already so tired, she'd urge herself to get up and cook us a perfect meal. If that isn't love, then i don't know what love is.

My Mom is special to me becausefor the longest time it was just the two of us. We didn't have much, but she sure made sure that I was rich when it came to love. It sound funny, but even though we were struggling, it was one of the best times of my life!

Xenia S said...

My mom is so special to me because she's just... her. She's there for me, she listens to me, she gives me advice, and she still manages to somehow have all the answers to my questions. I hope that when my daughters grow up we'll have a close relationship too and I'll be able to be there for them in the same way.

Thanks!

Lisa said...

My mother passed away in 1995. Now that I'm a mother, she's special to me because of the sacrifices she made for me and the lengths she went to to make sure I grew up in our faith. I didn't really appreciate that until I had a child of my own.

crystal said...

I can't list in a comment why my mom is so special, but probably the main reason is because I know she would do anything - and has - for me & my family. It means the world to me. Thank you for doing this!

Becky N. said...

I've heard of these before, and I'd sure love to win one!

My mom and I don't have the best relationship. We were often at odds while I was growing up, and I wasn't even a rebellious teenager. Our personalities just didn't mix. As it turns out, I've figured out how much I'm just like my mom since I've grown up, and we've come to sort of an odd understanding about how we relate to each other. I love her dearly, and I'm certainly glad for everything she did for me as I grew up. But sometimes it's a good thing we live on opposite coasts and can communicate mostly through the internet and phone calls!

Katrina said...

My mom is my best friend! She has always supported me and been my shoulder to lean on. I dont know what I would do without her! I would love to win! Thanks!

Mommy to those Special Ks said...

My mom rocks! She has been there for me through thick and thin. My husband is in Afghanistan, I have 4 kids, one who gets sick a lot and is in remission from Leukemia AND had spine fusion surgery this summer. She's always ready to help out with the other when I need to take her to an appointment and has even watched them all a few times so I could have some alone time. I truly don't know what I'd do without my mom!

jskell911 said...

My mom is special because I have never met a more altruistic person in my life! She is always looking out for others (so I spoil her because she deserves it!)

Courtney said...

I've made a lot of left turns in my life and I'm sure I'll make a few more. And with every turn and stop along the way I know that my mom will always be there for me.
