Portland, Oregon

   Nevada, New Hampshire, New Hampshire and Georgia

This past week American Mothers, Inc. held its annual convention in Portland, Oregon. Pictured above are some of my friends that I have met in this organization.  If they look a little ragged, it is only because we had spent the entire day in meetings.  There is no rest for the weary at these things, that is for certain!
At the convention, a new National Mother of the Year and Young Mother were named.

Here I am (2006 National Young Mother of the Year) with the 2007 National Young Mother from Georgia, the 2009 National Young Mother from Nevada and the 2008 National Young Mother from New Hampshire.  And, yes we were having a little bit fun!  It is always special when we welcome a new member into the club!

This was the 2009 Maine Mother of the Year.  She was a lovely lady that I was fortunate to sit by one day at lunch during the convention.  And that is what makes this organization so special, the diversity of its members.

Here is the 2007 National Young Mother with the new, 2009 National Mother of the Year.  She is from South Carolina.  Those southern girls definitely stick together!
This is the 2009 Oklahoma Young Mother, Shelly Soliz.  We had a blast in Portland together. Oklahoma was lucky to have Shelly represent them this year at the convention.  She will most certainly serve Oklahoma well as the 2009 Oklahoma Young Mother.

Finally, here are some of my favorite ‘moms’ at the convention.  There are two lovely ladies from Alabama that always host a post convention party in their room.  So, naturally I wanted a photo.  This was LATE night! They represent a cross section (in this particular photo that would be Alabama, New Hampshire, Georgia, Rhode Island, North Dakota, Wyoming and Texas) of the country which is one reason I enjoy being a part of this organization! Mom’s from all over who love being a mom! Now that is a good thing.

Hot Off the Press!

Last night, a mother of four from Nevada was named the 2009 National Young Mother of the Year by American Mothers, Inc . And guess what? She’s from Hominy, Oklahoma.

She’s also a graduate of the University of Oklahoma.

Thought you might like that!

Promise, promise pictures coming to a theater near you soon.

American Mothers, Part Two

Really, my favorite aspect of belonging to a national organization is that you become acquainted with people from all across the country. This particular organization, American Mothers, Inc. is comprised mainly of mothers from all walks of life, different cultures and faiths, and educational and professional backgrounds who place a tremendous value on motherhood.

They color my world.

The National Board of American Mothers, Inc. is comprised of 35 women from across the country. This year they come from the following states: Alabama, Arizona, Georgia, Oregon, Idaho, Utah, Kentucky, Rhode Island, Virginia, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Dakota, West Virginia, Texas and Oklahoma. (I am probably forgetting a few!)

The knowledge I have gained from spending time with these women is better than reading any parenting book on the shelves.

Pictures coming soon……………..
