Meet the "World’s Greatest Mom"

Della Sunderland was the winner of the Tahoe Daily Tribune’s “World’s Greatest Mom” contest. She won a dozen pink roses from The Flower Shop, chocolates from Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, a manicure from The Shoppe, and dinner for two at Scusa. Sunderland’s daughter, Natalie, wrote the following letter that was picked from hundreds of entries received at the Tribune.

I think my mom is the world’s greatest mom because she is always there for me and my brothers when we need her the most.

My mom works night shift from 7 p.m. to 3 a.m., so she’s really tired during the day, but she always tries to get out and do things with us. She would sleep ’till we got home from school, then get up and spend time with us. At about 5 p.m., she’ll make dinner for us, after dinner she would go get ready for work, then watch some TV with us. Then she will leave for work.

My mom doesn’t have a car. We used to get around on the bus and by bikes. Now she uses her friend’s car whenever she can. My mom is supportive of the things I choose to do and she helps me out with whatever it is that I need help with as much as she can.

That is why I think my mom should win the “World’s Greatest Mom” contest.
