My 3 1/2 year old daughter is the most empathetic person I know... she is always wanting to help others.

Madame Moore said...

It's a little cliche, but I would nominate my mom, who not only nursed my (her) entire family - but as a hospice nurse has the compassion, patience, and strength to help dozens of other people every day with one of the most difficult times of their lives: watching a child, parent, lover or sibling die. She amazes me.

(And I blogged this at:

- Thanks!

Paige said...

Don't most of us think of Mom when it comes to who took care of us when we were sick. I'm going to try to make a video and enter. Thanks for the info.

Taryn said...

My grandmother was the most selfless person I have known. She never thought of herself.

sweetnlow121 said...

I would have to nominate my mother. Even to this day she is truly my best friend. She sacrificed and did everything she could to ensure that her family was taken care of. She has always been there for me through the laughter and the tears. She was and is my role model for what it means to be a woman and a mother.

If I get a chance to blog about it I'll email ya!

Awesome opportunity you have...

zamejias said...

As I've said in the other blog, it would be my mom. Or my father. But unfortunately, I don't think I am good at making videos. With or without a video, my parents deserve all my accolades.

BTW, I blog about you here.

My step-daughter. She is 10, and a fervent prayer warrior for everyone she thinks that needs it. She is a very sensitive child that really 'feels' other people's pain...sometimes too much so :-( She is a precious precious child.

SS said...

I cannot think of anyone better than my mom. She is a survivor - survivor of domestic abuse and breast cancer. She is still working full-time to pay money that my dad owes from his gambling problem. I really don't know how she does it.

redron said...

I would nominate my cat. I was a single mother of 5 young kids and deathly ill. My cat stayed with me all the time. He gave me comfort when I needed it most.

chrystaltunnell1 said...

I would nominate my mom. She has always been there for our family.

jaredhall1 said...

I would nominate my friend/ old boss. When my dog was sick he rushed him to the vet and paid for the bills. I can't afford to pay him back and he refuses for me to give him any money. He's always there for his friends and his family.

Tammy said...

I would nominate my brother. Ever since his wife walked out on him, he's been struggling to make ends meet, and raise three little girls.

fangirl said...

Definitely my mom, for many of the same reasons others have mentioned. She helped me and continues to help me throughout my life.

Kirsten said...

I wasn't sure if you were supposed to nominate someone at the Vicks site? but everyone here is nominating someone they know, so my husband. He cares for others tirelessly and I can always count on him.

Jessilyn82 said...

My mom-she's been a breast cancer survivor for over 15 years now and she never let her illness get her spirit down, I admire her so much

Tes283 said...

Mom. Who else knows how to comfort me. Who else knows just how to make my favorite comfort foods. Who else will clean after me. And will clean my home while I am sick.
Ma, I love you.

Amy said...

I would probably nominate my sister. She always seems to know what I need.

I'd nominate myself because I had two very ill and incompetent parents that were very abusive and I managed to take care of myself and survive it all. Now I help others recover from similar backgrounds.

bkh61959 said...

I am a caring mother, wife, grandmother and co-worker and I would nominate myself, to care about others you have to care about yourself and I could use the help, thanks and good luck to all of you

Shelly said...

My sister-in-law who lost her first husband in a helicopter crash and nursed my nephew through childhood cancer.

Heather said...

What a wonderful contest idea. I loved reading everyone's memories. I have so many nurturing people in my life I don't know where to start. My mother, my best friend, my husband and my children.

joanna said...

I proudly nominate my friend Carol who I have known for the past 18 years. I lost my job a few years ago and fell on hard times and she was always there for me when I needed her to listen, or give advice. In my darkest days her love and support is what got me where I am today. I am now happily employed and am actually working a job that I am most passionate about, but would not have been able to get to the place I am now had it not been for Carol.

lisalmg said...

I would nominate my mother for always being there for me and helping me through the most stressful times in my life. She keeps me laughing, gives me strength and makes me feel positive about myself.

David said...

I would nominate my son and daughter-in-law because on December 31st they lost their new born baby son to a rare disease. God must have needed a beautiful baby boy in heaven because their precious child lived for less than one hour. We are all devastated by their loss.
