Issaquah doula Denise Foreman is inviting moms to share their “joys of motherhood” for a chance at a $50 gift card to Jak’s Grill.
Her inaugural Mother’s Day essay contest asks participants to craft an essay that’s 500 words or less describing the best parts about motherhood.
“Share with me your joys of motherhood. Make me laugh or make me cry,” she said. “Is it those precious bumps, thumps and butterflies of your baby within? Or when you first heard your little one exclaim, ‘I love you.’ Maybe it was the time you took photos of them with their prom date.”

Brunch celebrates moms of children with special needs
The sky was gray on a May 10 afternoon, but inside Swedish/Issaquah, where a special group of moms were treated to an early Mother’s Day brunch, it was nothing but sunshine.
Look no further than Issaquah mom Kimberley Lane’s Mother’s Day card, signed lovingly by her son Brian Galbraith with the inscription “your only son-shine.”

Mother’s Day isn’t until May 11, but I celebrated a little early last week with my mom.
Although she lives just a little less than 300 miles south, as the crow flies to Oregon, it proves to be just far enough that I only take the occasional visit.
I plan to make her a regular entry on my social calendar.

MOD will also honor five MOD Moms with a pizza party for 10 at the MOD location of their choice.
Share stories of a special mom you know, describing what makes this mom MOD — a cool skill or talent, having overcome a challenge, quirky advice or a hilarious “mom-ism.” MOD wants to hear from everyone with stories of extraordinary moms.
