M.A.C Giftcard Giveaway


Those who know me, know just how much I love my mother. Throughout my life, she has always supported me and has loved me unconditionally. When I got married, she told my husband the following; “If there ever comes a time when you feel like you don’t want her any more, give her back to me the way I gave her to you.” (I know that’s right momma!) She’s always been just one phone call away and the door to her home has always and continues to be open.

So with that said, A Word For My Sistas Online Magazine is sponsoring a chance for two lucky readers to win a $25 gift card from M.A.C cosmetics.

For your chance to win, please leave a comment below stating what you love most about your mother or what makes your mother so special.

Two winners will be selected. The giveaway ends on Friday at midnight EST. Winners will be announced on Saturday. Good luck!

  1. I love my mother because she suffered a lot when I was younger. My {sperm} donor was never present and she had to work odd jobs to bring me up. While I was pregnant she took me back in and cared for me, bc she didnt want me to be alone while my hubby worked. She is such a Blessing & I absolutely adore her!!! Thank you God for Ms. Dee <3

  2. My mother is the definition of self-lessness (if that’s even a word lol). She would give me the sweat off her brow if I asked for it. Even now, as I’m up in age, my mother has helped me above and beyond when she could’ve easily said no; when she could’ve easily turned me away…she has been THERE for me through thick and thin as no one else in my life has. She’s the strongest person I know; having put up with so much stuff in her life from different people. She’s strong yet humble and has an amazing grace and class about her that I can only hope I’m that nice and that selfless when I’m her age. She’s my mom and I love her so much and now I gotta go buy a flower for her and a card 🙂 Love you, Mrs. Brown!!!

  3. I was raised by my grandmother who is no longer with us. She was always there I never worried about being left alone. She would sit up at night until I came home from a ballgame no matter what time it was. She was always there, she had 13 children raised them and some of her grandchildren, everyone always gathered at her house. She is definitely missed by our family because she was our rock.

  4. hmm, where do i start when describing the magnificent being that is my mother. The Definition of selflessness, always thinking about us first. Her courageousness and strength is unmatched. She didn’t have to be there for me and my siblings, didn’t have to give her last, but she did, because her love for us was/is unconditional. My mother is truly a wonder woman. Having the patience and wisdom that she has, I will also be thankful for my mother. love u momma! HAppy mother’s Day!

  5. What I love about my mom so much is her gentle way. She’s always been a real lady–the kind that you just don’t find anymore. I love the way she raised us because she was gentle yet let us know who the bos was, and that’s hard to do when raising kids. She’s always been a perfect example of a godly wife/woman. Now that I’m 26, she’s one of my best friends.

  6. I love my mother b/c she is a strong woman who raised 3 girls on 1 boy on her own. She struggled thru alcoholism and was able to raise 4 successful kids, all on her own. She has always had our back and been there for us thru all of our struggles and her own. I love my mother because she taught us to do what she says not what we see.

  7. I almost passed on this cause is says “For your chance to win, please leave a comment below stating what you love most about your mother or what makes your mother so special.”
    and my mom passed away 9 years ago so this is actually what I “loved” about my mother and what “made” her so special. I can’t think, write of speak of her without tearing up, so here’s hoping this wins me some waterproof mascara for MAC.

    I loved how my mother was extra protective of us ( me and my three brothers). By example she taught me that real love does not hurt, and you don’t need a man to be whole, because of her I know that it is better to be alone that in a bad relationship and I know my worth. She showed me how to be an independent woman and the power of prayer.

    My maternal grandmother died when my mom was 18 and her mom asked her on her dying bed to take care of her younger siblings even though she had two older daughters and a husband left, so she raised my uncles who were 2, 7 and 9.

    My mom made many sacrifices for her younger siblings and later for my brothers and I and I hope that I can be as good a mother as she was.

    My mother was special because even at age 44 dying from a brain tumor her only concern was that her children would be ok in her absence, and never closed her eyes until she got that assurance.

  8. My mother is my rock. She has held on srong to her family and her values never wavering for either. I had never seen my pillar of strengh ever be lost for words before until my father passed. This was the first time in my life tht I ad ever seen my mother cry. She wiped away her tears and took a deep breath and did what all mothers do. ut themselves side to look after their children. I only hope I can be half the mother she has been tome and my siblings. When I doingthings with my boys I keep thought of her in my head, hopng I am making her proud.

    Peace, Love and Chocolate

  9. these are all very compelling and heart warming stories. I know that everyone has their own struggles. The reason I love my mother so much is because she created the word scarifice. she became sick 3 years ago to the point where she can’t even walk straight anymore. At the age of 44 yrs old, she lost her spirit and apart of herself. As a previous glam girl , she cant wear her heels, go party, or even enjoy life anymore. Due to her sickness she became depressed and lost her home. So I moved back home with her to help pay bills, but in the sick turn of events, I lost my job and started my on business to help her make due. My mother and I use to be very close and since she became depressed, that feeling of the dark cloud has come over her, and taken away the mother that I once knew. The doctors were unable to diagnose her with anything, so she walks aroud not knowing whats causing her sickness and what she can do to make herself better. Since she isnt married to her common law husband, she cant be on his insurance and she doesn’t qualify for medicade, so I watch her everyday with the look of hurt and unhealed spirit on her face. I try to do her hair and makeup to at least allow her to feel beautiful, but to no avail. life has many twists and turns but, what I would’t give to have the mother I knew, the mother who raised me back. Not in the phyical matter, but in her spirit, I want my mother back. So to all of you lovely ladies whom still have their mothers in good standing health, dont take it for granted. Apart of my mother has died and I dont know how to help her or fix it. I think sometimes thats worst than her being gone. I mean in my heart and in conversations that ive had with her, in death, she’ll be at peace. It’s the God in me, that keeps me motivated to do all that I can because she’s done it for me many times and still will. Even in your weakest moments, she gives her heart to me.

    God bless!!!!

  10. I love my mother because I feel she is a perfect role model for me. She is the virtuous woman I aspire to be. She is not the type of person to say one thing and do another. She truly leads by example in her everyday life. She makes doing the right thing in a world where everyone tries to “get over” so much easier for me because I see her living honestly and truthfully daily.

  11. As a child my mom would ask me,”Who makes it work?”, and I would always reply, “Mama”. I’ve always thought of her as a majestic woman. My mom was one that I would look up to that made the “impossible”, possible! Now that I’m older I realized how much she sacrificed and always wanted the best for her child that she loved so unconditionally. That’s why I love she’s so special to me.

  12. What I love the most about my mother is that she loved me enough to give me to someone who was going to raise me better than she could. My mother was a young vountry girl that got the opportunity to travel the world by the means of the army, she met my older father a higher officer and got pregnant, he didn’t want me and she figured she couldn’t do it alone nor bear the shame so she made the decision to give me to my grandmother. I knew it was hard for her ( she mentions often that she use to cry because I didn’t call her mommy or she had to bribe me to do so) but I thank God she did!! My grandmother is amazing and did an excellent job raising me the “old fashion” way and I appreciate that because nowadays some of the females in my generation lack respect for elders and are clueless when it comes to the simpliest things. Even though me and my mom relationship is not as strong as me and my grandmother I thank her and love her because in the end she thought about what would be best for my future and that was the ultimate sacrafice!!!

  13. My mother is the strongest woman i know. with six children to take care of she would give us the clothes off of her back if we needed it. when my father was fighting cancer, i saw a strength in her that i’ve never seen in anyone. out of the 4+ months he was in the hospital, there wasn’t a day that he spent alone. She was always by his side, keeping her faith in God no matter what. and after he passed, she continued to support her children. She never let us see her weak, never let us see her cry. she was our rock, our foundation and she continues to be there for us and support us. i owe everything i am to my parents. 😀

  14. My mother got pregnant with me at a young age. Being that young people emphasized on abortion and giving her reasons to not have a child; to think about college, and her future. Instead she used her heart and gave my life a chance. Growing from a little girl, she became a woman, a mom. The most caring, and loving I’m glad to have.

  15. I love my mom so very much. when my father left all i had was her. she said “your daddy might of left yall but i didnt and i never will” and she wiped the tears away and kept my heart happy ever since. my momma is my world. she has a very kind heart and she always thinks of me and my brother first. i love my momma cause shes always supportive even if she misses a game shes there for the next one.

  16. I MISS MY MOTHER SO MUCH SHE DIED IN 2006 AT THE AGE OF 82. SHE HAD ME WHEN SHE WAS CHANGING HER LIFE (MEANING LATE 40″S) SHE TAUGHT ME WHAT IT MEAN TO BE A WOMAN AND HOW TO RESPECT MYSELF THROUGH ANY SITUATION THAT MAY ARISE. SHE TAUGHT ME TO BE PROUD OF MYSELF AND THAT BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL.SHE WAS BROUGHT UP IN THE CIVIL RIGHT ERROR. SHE HAD BEEN THROUGH SO MUCH IN HER LIFE AND SHE STILL WAS A PEACE FOR WOMAN. SHE WOULD ALWAYS SAY WHAT DON’T KILL YOU WILL MAKE YOU STRONGER. SHE DID NOT LIVE TO SEE US WITH A BLACK PRESIDENT BUT SHE ALWAY BELIEVE THAT WE WOULD HAVE ONE. I GIVE A BIG SHOUT OUT TO MY MOTHER FOR HELPING ME TO BECAME THE WOMAN THAT I AM AND THAT’S A STRONG PROUD BLACK WOMAN…
