On our Facebook page we asked about real life heroines and the response was huge.  An overwhelming number of people responded that their heroine was their mother or grandmother. The stories were touching.

So, in honor of Mother’s Day we’re collecting stories. We want to know about your Mom, or Grandma, or Great-Grandma, or Aunt, tell us why they are your heroine.

Please leave your story in the comment section above or e-mail it to us at: info@bitchesonabudget.com. We will publish all the stories in one very long post on Mother’s Day. One entry will be picked at random (now really, who are we to judge who has the most ‘heroic’ mom?) to receive an autographed book.

Stories must be received by May 1.

Do you know who is in the picture and what she is famous for?
