Woman of the week, month, year, and century!

Our local Christian radio station Z88.3 here in Orlando does a weekly thing called "Woman of the Week."

You can submit an amazing and inspiring woman who you feel deserves to be honored and recognized. In 200 words (it's possible but so hard to sum up in 200 words) you write and submit, and if she gets chosen I get to go on the air and tell about her. How awesome would it be to tell millions of listeners about my amazing Mom???

I IMMEDIATELY knew I had to submit and so in 200 words I did just that.

"I’m pretty biased but I happen to think my Mom is the most incredible woman you will EVER meet. To me she is woman of the week, month, year, and century. She has faced a lot of adversity in her life and is yet facing another one. Her husband and love of her life is going through the fight of his life. He was diagnosed with Glioplastoma, a terminal and rare form of brain cancer. He is under hospice care and only has a short time left with us. They’ve only been married a short 2.5 years, not long enough. She has been nothing short of amazing during this time. She has been such a pillar of strength when her husband has needed it the most. Her faith never waivers and continues to praise God during the storm. To me she gives new meaning to “during sickness and in health.” She will always be my example and inspiration. I would love to honor her and give her the recognition she so deserves. She truly is the most important woman in my life and my best friend! Thank you in advance for considering her as WOTW :) God Bless!"

I really REALLY hope she gets chosen. Keep your fingers crossed. She's so deserving of this and I'd love to be able to honor her in this way. I'll let you know!

To me she will always be my woman of the week, month, year, and century! 


Also, if you don't have a local Christian radio station in your area, you can listen to Z88.3 online. Go check it out, it's a wonderful ministry and blesses me so so much. It will you too :)

Have a GREAT day!
