    My mother is my best friend. She has taught me how to be a good mother! She is the first person I call whenever I have a question. She is always there when I need her. She loves my daughter so immensely I could cry from happiness just seeing them together. I feel like she is my shining star in the sky always there to guide me when I’m weary and lost. As a teenager it felt like she could be the enemy, but now at almost 30 I know that she was just keeping me away from bad things and loves me deeply. I know that love now that I have a child of my own. I am so thankful for MY mother.

  6. Jamie Beck says:

    My mother is such a blessing to me. We live very close to each other and I love the fact that she is very involved with my children. This would be a great surprise to share with her for Mother’s Day, her birthday on May 15 and also her wedding anniversary on May15th.

  9. Lisa M says:

    My mom and I like to go on adventures together. We’ll drive to a faraway museum or find some hidden historical treasure and spend the day learning and looking. She fostered in me a curiosity for the world. Now that I have a daughter, I can’t wait to see what cultural excursions the three of us will embark on next!

  12. Laurie says:

Happy Mothers Day to all!!

    My mom was my best friend and she was there for me unconditionally even when others didn’t stand by me. She taught me to make the choices I wanted instead of what others wanted me to make. I miss having that but hope to pass that on to my own daughter (who is her namesake).

  28. Samantha Haneline says:

    My mom is a wonderful, loving mother, grandmother and great grandmother! She supports us all in our many endeavors. She’s still quite active and loves to shop!

  33. Jennifer Nafziger says:

    My mother taught what it meant to love unconditionally. She put her children’s needs above her own. I remember nights when she would stay up into the wee hours to finish sewing costumes, helping with projects, etc. She helped become people of Godly character, even when we didn’t want to hear her. She is the best Mom ever!

  34. Bronwyn Sternberg says:

    My mom has taught me the importance of patience and the reward of working hard.

  35. Jacki Hild says:

    I pray I stay committed to showing my mom love. And that I have many more opportunities to hang out with her. But more than that I pray I don’t take her for granted. Life most likely won’t slow down. But as I devote time to worthwhile endeavors, I don’t want to forget that in the grand scheme of things, holding my mother’s hands is one of the most priceless investments I’ll ever make.

  36. ktpezz says:

    My mom is the best mom and grandma. She has taught me many great lessons and had let me learn some tough ones on my own. She has been there when I needed her and even when I didn’t just to show her support. She loves and cares for my girls and would do anything for them!

    My mom did the best that she could with what she had. She taught me to always to do my best.

  38. Robin James says:

    My mother is Beautiful! She was always happy and giving to me. She worked hard to see that my sisters and I had nice clothes to wear. From sewing them when young to working at ZCMI to buy me Bobbie Brooke outfits. She taught me to take care of them and make sure that I was nicely dressed. She taught me to be a young lady. My mother was a classy lady! Love and miss her so much!

  53. Stephanie Bremenour says:

    My mother has helped shaped me into the women that I am today. She is the most dedicated and hardworking person I know. My father was diagnosed with the most progressive form of MS a couple of years and is unable to work. My mother works 2 jobs to pay the bills, all while caring for my dad and my 26 year-old brother who has Autism. She is the best! Also, she has a big, beautiful garden in the backyard that would greatly benefit from a Vera gardening set!

    Happy Mother’s Day 🙂

  54. Robin T says:

    My Mom taught me how to be a proud,independent woman !! Love her !!

  55. Laurie F. says:

    My mother, who had never played a sport in her life (she was a band geek, i mean band star) used to take me to our local soccer field and (reading from a book) run me through drills so that I could get better (I was the chubby slow kid). Fast forward 10 years and I became a 3 time state soccer champion with one Championship game MVP award. I also went on to play college soccer and win a national championship and become an All-American. I have no doubt if she wouldn’t have spent that time with me when I was young, I wouldn’t have valued the hard work she instilled in me and I wouldn’t have gotten as far as I did. She continues to push me to this day (and I’m 30!). I loves her so much!

  56. Yolanda says:

    Mothers carry and nurture us from birth through out life. I owe a lot to my mother; she is the heart of the home

    My mom is the best. She also loves to go Vera shopping with me!! 🙂

  58. Ashleigh says:

    My mom is my best friend. She is the smartest, kindest, most generous, and best person I know! I really hope that one day I’m half the mom she is.

  59. Mel says:

    My mom taught me that when you get knocked down to pick yourself back up and not to listen when others talk behind your back. She was a single parent in a small town back in the 70’s when it was taboo to be a divorcee with a child. I am who I am because of her strength.

  60. melissasummers says:

    My mother taught me that we are all stronger than we give ourselves credit for.

  61. kristie campbell says:

    I have only a few good memories of my mom, unfortunately. This time of year is hard because she hasn’t had anything to do with my in over 15 years:( But I do remember when I was a small child she would hold my hand and tell me she loves me! So when I get sad about not really having a mom, I remember that and close my eyes and try to remember how that felt at the time! It does soothe me:)

  62. Beth says:

    How about some rain boots? I would totally buy those!!

    While I lost my mother to cancer in 1977 when I was just 23 years old and with an 8 month old, she was, and still is, a great role model in my life, and I love her so much and know I will see her again one day. I miss her every day and wish she could have lived to enjoy her four grandchildren, now 38, 36, 31 and 30. She would have been a fabulous granny to them and a wonderful great-granny to their children.

  90. Hillary says:

    My mother introduced me to Vera Bradley! I love to shop with her and see how similar our tastes are. Even though we live on opposite coasts now, we still shop the website together over the phone. Whenever we see each other, we do a ‘VB swap’ where we trade the styles that we’ve both used so that we have something ‘new.’

  128. debina3144 says:

    My mom is very special. She is one of a kind.She gives endlessly, makes birthdays and holidays special. Encouraged my independence and success as a nurse. My mom deserves this special gift because her poodle just died and she feels sad and alone this Mother;s day. Pets leave an empty whole in your heart when they go to the Rainbow Bridge in heaven.

    My mom is my best friend. I love her so much, and she’s taught me everything I know. Whenever I need advice, I always turn to my mother and I tell her everything because she’s kind and understanding. She taught me how to be polite, yet strong. She works hard everyday and never gives up hope. She’s always ready to try new things, even if it means moving to the other side of the world (which she has done several times). She’s done this to support my family, and to give me better opportunities and better future. I admire her courage, and forever will. Because my mom is the most wonderful woman I know. Family always comes first for her, but she’s always there for her friends when they need her, and they come to her for advice and comfort often. She has showed me that I should always be compassionate, but stand up for what I believe in. She is fun-loving and gracious. She always does things out of the good of her heart, and never shies away from opportunity. She is the best teacher, mother, and friend that I know. She’s the best momI could ever ask for, and I know she loves VB as much as I do. She would be thrilled to have such a great mothers day present. I want to show her how much I love her. I think she deserves this present, to thank her for everything she’s done for me, and how she’s impacted the lives of others. Thank you mom ❤

    My mother is my best friend. She continues to teach me all the time but most importantly, she taught me to love unconditionally and to be compassionate to everyone. Thanks Momma.

  142. Cathy K. says:

    My Mom nurtures her family through cooking, whether through a big Sunday dinner or a weeknight meal made so I don’t have to cook for the family after a long day at the office it’s her way of showing us she loves us all.

  143. Amy O'Connor says:

    My mom was an angel on earth who taught me to treat others as you would like to be treated.

  144. Courtney says:

    my mom is a great cook!

  145. Jean says:

    Be kind

  146. Lori W says:

    My mom is a great cook and baker, and her flowers are always gorgeous!

  147. amyinstl says:

    My mom taught me that its important to have your own money and means of support.

  148. carolyn adcock says:

    my mother was soooooooooooooooo sweet now she has gone to be with the Lord!!!!!!!!!!

  149. Kaneesha says:

    My mom is always there for me. She loves me as much as I love her. We are very close. Winning this prize would be great. She loves gardening as well

  150. Krissy says:

    My mom is very nice and kind. I love her a lot. My mom has always wanted a Vera Bradley bag so I really hope I win so I can give it to her.

  151. Mary Kate says:

    My mom is an orchestra teacher and taught me how to play the violin when I was 3. She always is willing to “kiss my boo-boos” better.

  152. Mary Kate says:

    We have a weed problem in our backyard, so the gardening package would be perfect for her.

  153. Ca says:

    My mother was always there while I was growing up to listen attentively and to give the best advice and guidance . She always loved me so dearly and it was the most wonderful thing in my life!

  154. Sonia C. says:

    My mother taught me to persevere and do what I felt was right, no matter who thought I was being ridiculous. She always told me to be who I am and say what I feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.

  155. Chris B. says:

    My mother is creative. Out of all the things I remember most, it was her passion and love of crafts and art. She always comes up with special projects, and can turn any room into a must have, five star, designer room!

  156. lindakelsie says:

    My mother taught me to persevere through whatever comes my way. My dad had a catastrophic stroke about 2.5 years ago and she didn’t leave the hospital the entire time that he was there. She stands by his side in everything that he has to re-learn. It is absolutely amazing. She is so strong.

  157. My mom is always helping others. She has taught me to have a giving heart.

  158. sonia says:

    My mother always told me to do things not for man but for God. On Sundays we loved to sing hymns together. She is so loving!!!!

  159. Lori says:

    My mother’s patience is something I am constantly striving for. She was so patient when she dealt w/ me as a teenage girl. Boy, do I need her patience now w/ my own teen daughter. I am so blessed to have her guidance and I am fortunate she has a wonderful relationship with her granddaughter.

  160. Debbie says:

    My mother is a wonderful person. She always puts everyone else before herself. I love her so much. I am so lucky she is my mom.

  161. Emily says:

    My mom is the BEST! She taught me that the best way to show love was to treat others how I want to be treated.

  162. My mother was like the other half of me. We liked the same books, TV shows, foods, clothing. My mother was the youngest of 3 girls and so am I. Mom always made me feel like I was the special one, when she was always the special one. She made each of us girls (my two sisters and I) feel as if we were the best, the smartest, the cutest, the bravest, the classiest, the strongest and we could do it all, have it all. But yet, she never treated any of us different we were all treated the same. My mother is gone for 22 years and I miss her as much now as I did when she first died. I know she would have loved Vera Bradley bags, because she was a sew-er, she made all of clothes as we grew up even our wedding gowns. Vera handbags make me think of her because they are cloth and give you that homey hand made feeling. I would love to win the Vera Bradley contest, but I would rather have just one more hour to talk to my mother.

  163. Debbie says:

    This gift set is perfect for my mom! She works so hard to keep her yard looking nice. I love her!

  164. Kathie M says:

    This Mother’s Day will be very hard without my mother for the 10th year and too long since my grandmother taught me how to plant marigolds around the tomato plants to protect them.
    Can’t wait to get the gloves and hat to use while mowing the lawn and fixing up the flower beds.

  165. Rio says:

    My mother taught me to look for the positive in any situation and to love and enjoy life.

  166. diana says:

    My mother passed away when I was 16 but the gift she left me was a childhood filled with her love and this is what has carried me through this life without her. And this is the love I share with my own children and grandchildren because it is the most precious gift that I can give to them, a mother’s love.

  167. Sonya Tidmore says:

    My mom was my heart, it took me 10yrs to ever live again after she was gone, if that dont tell u how much she was loved nothing never will rip Janice Webb

  168. Rachel D. says:

    My mother is incredibly helpful and our relationship continually evolves. She is very motivated and accomplished woman which are wonderful qualities to me.

  169. Heather A says:

    My mom is softness, sweetness, warmth, glow and light. She radiates love.

  170. Melinda Wilson says:

    My mom has been a single mom since I was 14 years old which was almost 40 years ago. She was and still is a wonderful example of a godly mom that puts others before herself.

  171. Aimee Wojciechowski says:

    My mother is the strongest woman I know, inspires me daily, and continues to be the best friend I could ever ask for.

  172. Sarah G. says:

    My mom taught all of us at home, and she was a wonderful teacher!

  173. Hally says:

    My stepmom after years of worrying about blending the our kids/his kids debate, just shrugged when I asked about inviting MY inlaws to her house for the holidays. ‘We had to make you kids choose and I hated it. Why should we make the grandkids?’

  174. Martha says:

    My mom has trouble getting around because she has Parkinson’s disease, but she lives alone and wants to be independent as long as she can. Walking her dogs gives her a good reason to go outside and stay active every day! I admire her strength.

  175. MarthaC107 says:

    My has taught so many things. Because of her I am who I am today. A strong and confident woman who can stand on her own and love her family and faith deeply.

  176. Alison B. says:

    My mom is my best friend. She has taught me how to be a mature, respectful daughter. Even though I may not agree with her at all times, she knows whats best for me and just wants me to succeed in life. She would give the shirt off her back for anyone. mother knows best, right? (:

  177. Gwen Murphy says:

    My mom is my favorite person in my life. She can joke around, she cares, she is just amazingly strong. I am really a clone of her, (shush) 😉 I don’t know where I would be without her ❤

  178. Cathie Hoy says:

    My Mom has been by my side through 14 surgeries, they started when I was just 12. She slept next to me every night, and just three years ago did the same. She has constantly supported me through my medical battles and encourages me every day. At 35 I can say I’m proud to have inherited her traits of loyalty, and faith. My Mom continues to work full time at an elementary school working with children in reading recovery. She starts every school year with Kindergarteners and helps them learn the alphabet. By the end of the year she has them reading. I want nothing more than someone to give me the honor of telling me, “you’re just like your mom!”
