During these past 2 months, there are lots of times to celebrate important people in our lives – especially Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. Parents are truly some of the most important people in your life – they raise you and shape you into the person you’ll become. I was blessed with 2 amazing parents, though my time with my dad was brief. My mom has been my rock for my whole life, and I wouldn’t be the person I am today without her. I’m partnering with Tylenol’s Stories of Strength campaign to share with you my story of how my mom has shown me strength!
My mom is by far the strongest person I know. She raised me all by herself after my dad passed shortly after my 3rd birthday. She was in the military, but ended up getting out so she could be around me more. I can’t even fathom what that must’ve been like. She’s helped me become the person I am today, is my best friend, and I don’t know what I would do without her. She encourages me to follow my dreams and to be myself, she’s always there for me no matter what, and she loves me unconditionally – through fights and flaws and tears – and most of all, she inspires me to be a better person. I couldn’t ask for a better woman to look up to & to call my mother!
Extra Strength TYLENOL® is partnering with actress Andie McDowell and her daughter, actress and singer Rainey Qualley, to launch STORIES OF STRENGTH, a program that encourages people to share stories honoring someone who has been a source of strength in their lives. Andie had the opportunity to learn how her strength inspires her daughter, Rainey, to be strong for her up and coming career in music and is excited to share her personal story, as well.
It’s easy to get involved. Visit the TYLENOL® Facebook page at www.TylenolStoriesofStrength.com and share your story via video or a photo and a few short sentences. Each story shared will support DoSomething.org, an organization that activates young people to be strong leaders for social change. Participants will also have a chance to win a weekly prize from TYLENOL® to take the strength passed on to them to do something that is important to them.
