Mother's Day is a special day to celebrate the women that love you unconditionally. Consider yourself lucky if you have a mother that pushes you to be your best and picks you up when you're knocked down. On Sunday, May 9 is the day all mothers are pampered and treated like a Queen, for Mother's Day.

You wish you could give your mom everything and more that she deserves for being the best mom to you. But to her, you're her everything and you simply keeping her company is all she wants. Usually, the best kind of gifts is the ones that are made from the heart and by your hands.

As a mother myself, I sure do love handmade gifts my 10-year-old son makes for me. Whether it be a letter, a card, a drawing, or a noodle necklace, those gifts mean the most. If you would like to go above and beyond for your mom, you can do just that.

The Great Khalid Foundation and the El Paso Library are holding a Mother's Day essay contest. This is the opportunity to show just how much your mom means to you in words. Now, it doesn't necessarily have to be your birth mom that you can write about.

Whoever played that mom role in your life and acted as a mother figure to you, is also accepted. For the essay contest, you must explain why you love your mom in order for her to be considered for the special prize package. They will select one boy and one girl for the special prize package to reward your special mom with.

If you would like to be entered all participants must be 5 to 18 years old. Your handwritten essays must not exceed 2 pages and your handwriting must be legible. Be sure to complete your submission form and the deadline to submit entries is Friday, April 30 by 6 pm.
