If you’re like me, trying to find that perfect Mother’s Day gift is often a challenge (though I made it easy for Mr. PunditMom and PunditGirl this year by asking for an addition to our lawn furniture!)

But MomsRising sure knows how to make a mom feel good about all the things we do that, to be honest, sometimes our families take for granted.

Watch the special Mother’s Day card here!

Don’t worry — it’s not just for me! ALL moms, thanks to the advocacy group MomsRising, have won the coveted 2009 Mother of the Year Award. Just go to the same site and customize it for all the moms in your life.
Of course, MomsRising is about a lot more than just recognizing the hard work of mothers — it’s also an amazing group that works to promote issues of special importance to mothers and all those who have mothers, including fair pay, health care for children, sick leave and many others.

As for Brangelina not voting for me? I’m going to have to have a word with them! And I have to say, I think I’m going to have to talk with Mr. PunditMom about getting that tattoo!!
