Title:  Wonder Woman
   
 
Essay:  My mother, Linda Dillard is the greatest, she has been there and will always be there for me, my sister and my sisters kids. Not only is she an amazing mother she is also an amazing grandma. No matter what, she will always take care of me. If I were to ever need anything I know she would be there to help.

She helped me move all of my stuff to Renton and helped me find a job in Bellevue. She helped move my heavy toolbox upstairs at my apartment to bring them to my new job at Nissan.

She basically broke herself to make sure that I was able to go to the technical school of my choice and to follow my dreams, even though my dreams were to be a female technician, she still stood by my side and believed in me. She helped me through my after high school schooling, she never let me starve, she always made sure that I had gas to make it to school, she would call me everyday just to hear my voice and to see how my day was going. She took out a tremendous amount of money in loans to get me through school and to help me move to Sacramento. She helped me buy a car after I was in a rollover accident. She wasn't even mad about the car, she only cared that I was okay.

When I was in high school she went to all of my soccer and basketball games no matter how far or how much gas it took. She would take time off work if it meant that she could see me play. She would always bring me Gatorade or a protein bar before games to make sure that I wouldn't get dehydrated or sick, and before we would leave Forks for our games she would always make sure I had a drink and some snacks for our long bus trips.

I love her and I wouldn't be the same person that I am today if she didn't sacrifice so much for me and that is why that I feel that my mother is the greatest.

MommaJo My sister is a world class Mother. She has always put her girls first and cheered them on in what ever sport they were playing at the time. She would work all day and drive for hours to watch them play, drive home in the wee hours of the morning and then go to work , And do it all again. She is a wonderful person an blessed to have two beautiful daughters and two wonderful granddaughters. Linda gives of herself to many, if she has a fault it is not taking time for herself. She is a very proud Mother and Grandmother ,if she wins this contest would be great . In my eyes she already has by the Beautiful words written by her daughters. She should know that our Mother would be very proud of the Mother she is.

Selmoe My mother is the best! I love my mom so much. She's not perfect but she's mine. She'd give anyone the shirt off her back. She gives and gives to the community without reservation. She's been there when I've needed her and I know she'd drop everything to be there for me again. I am who I am because of her. Mom, you deserve the world and I'd love to give it to you. I love you to the moon and back.

TwylaWyld Linda is an AWESOME & AMAZING woman!! Our children graduated together but I've known Linda for many years. We bowled together on Wednesday Night Women's Bowling League & as I've watched her children grow into beautiful women, just like there mom, I can testify to her tremendous support of them. I wish her luck in this competition but in my eyes as an outsider of this AMAZING family she's already won because of her LOVE, devotion, & dedication to not only her children but her grandchildren.
