Kristine Burns nominated Loretta as her #MomCrush in our Nom-A-Mom program that recognizes and celebrates Moms, like you and me, for those small (and sometimes large) wins we have along the journey of Motherhood. Kristine wrote us and told us about Loretta (a mother of four) who she admires and looks up to. She wrote,
"She always puts others first and has taken in children from other family members several times even when she was not financially prepared for it in that moment. She has taught me that its better to help any child in need, even if it means putting a little extra stress on yourself. She is beyond selfless and expects nothing back in return for her good deeds."
Thank you Kristine, for sharing your #MomCrush with us! Because we chose Kristine and Loretta's story, we have awarded Kristine with $50 worth of Oilogic products. Loretta has won $100 to treat herself and $100 to the charity of her choice. She chose Susan G Komen Breast Cancer Foundation because "my mother was a breast cancer survivor and a very close friend of mine was also diagnosed recently with breast cancer."
Finally, we asked Loretta a few more questions about herself so we could better learn more about why she is awesome-sauce. Here is what we learned:
4 kids ages 18, 16, 13 and 11
Watching my kids when they get along. Seeing them smile and truly enjoying one another as they play or just hang out. Especially when we would make time for a family vacation.
Sweets of any kind, wine and Disneyland
Alive: Martha Stewart so I could learn how to be a better baker. Deceased: my father, mother, twin brother and 2 sisters. I lost them all between a close window of each other and would love to see them again.
Goofy, dependable and loyal
To fly. I love birds and would love to fly like one even though I'm terrified of heights. I'm not to sure how that would work out now that I think about it more. (LOL! :))
Loretta, we loved getting to know ya'! Maybe sometime we can go to Disneyland with you to drink wine, eat cake and ride the roller coasters. Thanks for being a really awesome human, inspiring mother and loyal friend.
