10 Things To Thank Your Mom For This Mother's Day

Dear Mom,

I know raising me wasn’t easy. In fact, I’m sure it was much more stressful than you expected. I know I was challenging, but I want you to know that nothing you did ever went unnoticed. You are my truest example of strength, compassion and love.

Today is your day, because the other 365 days of the year you make it our day. I know you don’t always get the appreciation you deserve but today is the day we get to give back. You have sacrificed everything to assure my personal well-being and happiness, and I could not be more grateful. Though there are so many things I am thankful for, thank you especially for just being you. While I love you for you, thank you for everything else:


1. For always being my biggest advocate.


2. For making sure that I have everything I need.


3. For always answering my phone calls, no matter what the subject may be.


4. For supporting all of my decisions, even if you knew I was making the wrong one.


5. For putting up with me through my worst years.



6. For teaching me how to be strong and independent.


7. For loving me unconditionally, no matter what the circumstances.


8. For never letting me quit, no matter how bad I wanted to.


9. For always being my mother, rather than my best friend.


10. And for constantly reminding me that someday I will end up just like you, even though I know that's not a bad thing.

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."
