Wendy, who works in a restaurant, said: "Thank you, mum, for taking care of me for the past 24 years. May you have an enjoyable 56th birthday and Mother's Day."

That is just one of the many heartfelt entries submitted to Stomp for the website's annual Top Mum Awards.

In another inspiring "Top Mum" story, Rosalind Ow's mother peddled household items and sold kueh (cake or snacks) to support her five children after her husband was diagnosed with tuberculosis.

Rosalind's mum started work as early as 6am every day, but still found the strength to visit her husband in the hospital after work.

She passed away last month, prompting Rosalind to submit an eulogy to her mum while nominating her for Stomp's Top Mum Awards 2011.

Rosalind wrote: "Mum, how I wish I could thank you for your great sacrifice. Although you left us on March 21 at a ripe age of 92, you remain the greatest mum in our hearts. You have left a legacy for us to follow."

So, move us with stories of your mother's love, devotion and sacrifices with a minimum of 1,000 words, and send us your best family photographs and videos. The more photographs you send, the better your chances of winning.
