My mom, Gail Nolan, is fabulous! As the mother of two sons and myself, she has proved time and again the power of a mom's love and presence. She lives her life gracefully, even in times of stress. We cannot always be together when we'd like - mom lives in Florida while my brothers and I live in the northeast. This distance is often troubling and has its challenges, but our hearts are always together. And when we are together - watch out! We are a force to be reckoned with. From walking the dogs and soaking up sun at the beach to strolling our favorite parks or chilling out at home, we are always happiest when we're together. Anticipation of our next phone call or visit keeps us going when we miss each other most, while memories of times we've had always brings a smile to our faces. My mom is a one-of-a-kind, beautiful, strong, and independent woman. She deserves a very happy mother's day, everyday! - Darla Lowery Poulas, Long Beach Island
