We were very lucky to be able to put something together for one special mom in our area for Mother's Day. We held a little competition to find the most amazing mother in the Ark-La-Tex. We asked you to submit a letter detailing why your mother is the best. You came through. We had over 150 submissions.

Thankfully we weren't the ones to decide the winner, because in my heart every mother deserved to win our Mother's Day package. We had a panel of 3 judges who narrowed down the submissions to the top mom. That winner was Shelia Schroeder.

Shelia was nominated by her daughter Megan. Megan wrote to us and said that her mother "one of the strongest and most deserving mothers out there."

She went on to write that "She has always been there for me and my brother no matter what. A few years ago, my brother got into a horrible four-wheeler accident that put him in the hospital for over a month. It almost killed him. My mom never left his side. Not even for one minute. That is who she is. If you need help she is going to sit beside you until you are back on your feet and holding you every step of the way so you don't fall."

Not only that but "She also helps my grandmother (her mother) with doctors appointments, medications, and also with the round the clock care of my severely handicapped aunt which is her sister. Even when she is exhausted from doing all that she then goes and works down at the convenience store close to her house and always has a smile on her face. My mom has suffered with disk disease in her neck for many years and also with tumors in her wrist joints. It amazes me that she can do the things she does with a smile on her face and not one ounce of complaint. Need your grass mowed? She will do it. Cut down trees? She will do it. Split fire wood? She can and has done it. She is my definition of wonder woman."

We were able to get Shelia on the phone to read her the submission her daughter submitted and to let her now that she was our winner. Check out the video below to see how she responded.

Shelia has received a Walmart shopping spree, a $270 Spa package from Studio B, a take home spa basket from Man Made Soaps and the Bossier City Night Market, and a $100 gift card to River City Grille.

From everyone at K945 and the Morning Madhouse, we would like to say thank you to everyone who made this contest possible. We would like to thank the folks who submitted such beautiful stories about their mothers. We would also like to wish all the mothers out there a Happy Mother's Day.
