Natalie Wolff with her mom Jane Wolff and husband, Andy Giddings, all of Fargo, on Natalie’s 27th  What makes your mom special? My mom is incredibly special because she did a wonderful job raising two children (and several dogs) by herself. She's a woman incapable of saying no. She's active in her church, is part of a women's organization that promotes education and still finds time to host parties, bridal/baby showers or dinners.

Stephanie Larson, of Tucson, Ariz., right, with her mom Sandi Larson, of Moorhead What makes your mom special? My mom had me at a very young age (17) and my brother was born by the time she was 21. My parents divorced when we were very young, and my mom was left to raise us on her own. We didn’t have much but she was always there for us. She completed her college education while I was in high school. I am so proud of my mom for all that she has accomplished and overcome during her life. She makes me laugh and I can talk to her about anything.

Jen Kuschel, right, of Fargo, with her mom, Margaret Kuschel, of Minot, N.D., in Scotland What makes your mom special? My mom and I took a five-day guided tour of the Hebrides islands and spent an additional four days in Edinburgh, Scotland.  The day we visited the Callendish Stones the wind was a steady 45-50 mph.  We had such a hard time standing up we started laughing hysterically and had trouble stopping.  It was a great trip and I couldn't have taken it with anyone else.

Brianna Charles, left, of Fargo, with her mom, Robin Larson, of Shevlin, Minn. What makes your mom special? There’s no one thing that makes my mom special - it’s her particular collection of experiences, values, qualities and quirks that make her noteworthy.  She has faced obstacles, made tough choices, shared her love and her time and worked hard to build a life that’s worth living and filling it with people worth sharing it with.  And more importantly, she’s done her best to teach her children to take on challenges, grow, love and give of themselves so they, too, can have a life worth living.

She has a heart big enough for just about everyone around. She has been a constant reminder of what it means to love sacrificially. She has always put others needs ahead of her own. I love her as my mom and cherish her as my best friend. I hope to one day be to my children what she has been to me.

Phyllis Johnson, center, of Fargo, with her sister, Jeanette Martin, of Minot, N.D., and their mother, Lilly Moseng in 1979 What makes your mom special? Mom passed away in 2010 at the age of 96.  She had been a widow for 25 years ande raised nine children on a small rural farm in North Dakota.  She knew a hundred poems and stories by heart, had an excellent garden, wonderful home baked bread, nutritious meals and home canned goods.  No one could ever (in my opinion) make her children feel more special than she did us.
