Rita Keeling said she always told her children she loved them when tucking them into their beds each night.
That love was repaid in spades last week when her son, Adam, nominated her for America's Favorite Mom, a national Internet-based promotion that allows voters to choose the nation's top mom.
"I was shocked," Rita Keeling said Monday afternoon from her living room in Stringtown. "When I read what he wrote, I nearly cried."
Adam Keeling, 28, said he entered his mother in the contest while surfing the web to buy flowers for Mother's Day.
