We just got the sweetest message from our Mom of the Year winner, Rebecca Osmialowski and wanted to share it here with all of you who are following her story!
Hello! I just want to thank you, so much, for this wonderful gift that you have given me. I am both honored, and humbled beyond belief that my story was written by such an amazing woman that I consider not only my friend, but my sister in heart, and that it touched your hearts as well. I am blessed beyond measure for the wonderful people in my life that have seen my children and I through our struggles and joys, and for their warm words of encouragement and soft shoulders for tears.
There have been too many days to count that have been full of struggle, heartbreak, and guilt, but every night I still go to bed with a silent prayer full of thanks and relief that it was another day that I got to spend with my beautiful children. They are the true heroes in this story. They fought, and continue to fight every day for a place in this world, and I couldn’t be happier for the strength and tenacity that they have.
Again, thank you, SO much for this amazing gift that you have given me. My heart is overflowing with all of the kind words and warm wishes that I have received because of Jessica’s beautiful nomination and your wonderful recognition. I only hope that I can live up to such an amazing award and honor!
Sincerely and with Love, Rebecca Osmialowski
(On a side note, EEEEEEK!! I am so excited to see all of the goodies and try everything out!! And oh my gosh, a gift card!!! I was just exclaiming that now I could maybe get my hair and toes done, AND buy a new hairdryer and curling iron! THIS IS SO AMAZING!!!! AHHHHH!!!)
Also, I couldn’t bear to change the picture that Jessica included with the article because it just simply means so much to me. So! I am sending a collage of some of my favorite moments with the kids! I’m one of those people that loves candid photos and funny faces, and I can’t help but share with the world these silly, yet adorable mugshots!
