“Daily Dose of Gratitude” Photo Contest Submission Page

With the holiday season right around the corner, this is the time of year when we think about what and who we are grateful for in our lives. This November, we are thrilled to announce the "Daily Dose of Gratitude" Photo Contest. Who are you grateful for and why? When was the last time you sent them a personalized thank you card? Take that feeling of gratitude and put it into action by submitting a photo of that special someone in your life along with a short thank you note on the Mom It Forward website and Facebook page.


I am grateful for all 4 of my children, however only the youngest son was the only 1 to ever make a self portrait. I have kept it framed for the past decade.

This is my Meemaw and Big Daddy. I am grateful for them because of the wonderful example they are to everyone they meet. This picture was taken at the celebration of their 70th wedding anniversary! Such an inspiration of loyalty and perseverance. I wish everyone could have them in their lives. I am so blessed!
