A belated Mother's Day tribute

Last night was the finale for The Amazing Race. It's the only show I watch with any regularity, and we let the kids stay up to watch it (great way to start the week behind).

Watching the interaction between Margie and Luke, a mom and deaf son team, was totally inspiring (it's the last three minutes of the clip above). They made the finale, and were first place going into the last task...and last coming out.

She is just an amazing parent. Watch the clip above, especially their interaction in the car and on the mat. She totally did the race for him, and she was a strong competitor--probably the strongest of the four women in the final three teams.

Happy Mother's Day, Margie. You're inspiring.

Thanks for sharing that Ann! I didn't realize there was a deaf person on the Amazing race, I may have watched it. It's a great story!
