We asked you to finish this sentence, and finish you did. With tears in our eyes (and a few loving laughs), we read your answers, and then picked up the phone to call our own moms to thank them for everything from beautiful eyes to strength, love and nice legs. Starting with the winning post, here are some of your answers to the Mother of all Mom’s Day Contests…
