Hey West Chester! Let's give this W.C. mom who's been through so much, something to smile about in this mother of all Patch contests.
She's been through more than one mom should have to bear and she's won the affection not only of a grateul daughter but also the votes of West Chester Patch readers in our Patch Mother's Day contest. Katrin Golightly tells the story of a mom who has lost two of her three children and not only kept on going, but keeps on inspiring. Katrin writes of her mom: she almost lost me to epilepsy, but took the chance to give me a life of being seizure free by having major brain surgery. Not only did brain surgery keep me from seizures, but it prevented me from driving so when I wanted to go somewhere my mom was always around to drive me. Help Katrin and her mom win the Patch Mother's Day contest. Click here for the story and then vote for her …

Nudy's Cafe wins are very unscientific poll.
Alright guys, I'm sorry. I screwed this one up. I posted the poll on Monday without the actual poll, and because I am even worse at my job, the poll wasn't posted until Tuesday afternoon. So, Nudy's Cafe won this week's poll with a whopping one vote. That's it. One. I feel like I short-changed the readers and the Mother's Day Brunch community as a whole. In order to make it up to those of you who care please leave a comment below if you have a favorite sport other than Nudy's. Voting officially closed this morning at 9 a.m., but we're going to have an unofficial run-off vote. I am the editor; I have that power. Please feel free to leave a comment voting for your favorite below.

As we get ready for Mother’s Day, Patch wants to hear about your mom and what makes her so great.
Editor's Note: Thank you for your comments. The entry period is now closed. Mother’s Day is days away and many of you may be wondering what you can give to your mother to thank her for all that she has given to you. Gifts can be thoughtful, but sometimes it’s the words that mean more, that show you truly care and appreciate what she did. We’d like to give each of you the opportunity to tell the greater Philadelphia and Lehigh Valley areas why your mother is so special and what makes her so wonderful. You may have a story you’d like to share or words of appreciation. We want to read it. We are hoping to find some truly great Mother’s Day stories, so please be sure to include your hometown in your post. We’re so excited about getting these …
