An Amazing Mother

”WOW! You are going all that wayjust to help someone?" My mom, Leslie, is the best. She will go hours away to help strengthen someone or to help others. She is an incredible volunteer at our church. For these reasons, my mom is an amazing person!

First of all, Leslie helps out people at their houses to feel better. My mom is a physical therapist and assists people after surgery or accident. She helps them walk, feel better, and get healthier. My mom also volunteers to clean at the church. She volunteers a lot and does a great job of it every time.

She sweeps the floor, dusts the statues, and cleans the benches. At last, she teaches third grade religion every Wednesday night. My mom does it every single year and does a wonderful job. The kids listen to her, have fun with her, and learn new things about religion with her. Doesn't my mom sound like an

amazing person?

My mom is the best by helping people when they are sick, out of the hospital, and after accidents, cleans at the church, and teaches third grade religion. For all these reasons, my mom is the best choice for Mother of the Year.

My Mom is the Best!

Mother of the Year? My mom, Teri Jansen, is the most incredible mom who could win the Mother of the Year. I think the judges should choose my mom because she is the best mom in the world.

The first reason is she helps me when I need help. She helps me do my homework. Also, she helps me practice for sports. The second reason she is the best mom is she helps the elderly. She takes food to my grandma. She visits my grandma when she doesn’t feel good. The third reason is she works

hard at home and at work. Usually, she gets up at 4:00am and does laundry for our family. She goes to the store at 12:00am and buys food for us. She also works with kindergarten kids all day long! My mom is a workaholic!

She helps me, helps my grandma, and works hard for my family. My mom is the greatest mom in the world!
