12 Things That Happen When Your Mom Is Your Best Friend

Sure she's crazy and doesn't always make sense, but that is the best part about her being your best friend.

12 Things That Happen When Your Mom Is Your Best Friend
Cassie Via

Growing up, my mom and I were always very close. There were many times that I tried to take advantage of that as well as times that we would get very upset with each other over small things due to being so close. To this day my mom and I are still very close and I call her at least once a day just to talk when I’m away at school. Here are just a few things that happens when your mom is your best friend.

1. You call her about everything, especially the bad stuff

You know you can call her at any time, with any problem and she will listen.

2. Sometimes, you just really need to hug her to feel better

Whenever I feel upset I know that huggung my mom will help me feel better.

3. She also calls you about everything, literally everything

Just like you call her any time, she does the same to you. Even if its just to say she misses you because you haven't been home in a few weeks.

4. She always has the best ideas

Who doesn't want to skip a day of school to spend time with their mom?

5. She ignores you when she’s busy and doesn’t even care

We've all tried to get our moms attention when she was busy doing something. Sometimes she just likes to ignore you because she thinks its funny to make you mad.

6. You learn to accept that she is always right, even if you don’t think she is

As hard as it might be to admit at times, being so close to mom has shown me that regardless of if I want to accept it or not, she is right. Your mom knows what she is talking about when she says a boy is bad news or that going out on a Wednesday isn't your best idea. Listen to her next time.

7. She will pester you, and then make fun of you for it

She will find times to pester you or startle you ALL THE TIME. Just because it is funny for her to see you get scared andshe can make fun of you for it later.

8. She will be the first person to defend you

Gratned we don't all have Molly Weasley for a mother, she will always defend you.

9. She will dance like this. Sometimes it will be in public. You will be embarrassed and she won’t care

As a mother, it is her job to make you feel embarrassed while she has fun dancing around.

10. You learn to appreciate how much she has done for you

She would give you the shirt off her back without even thinking about it. She does everything she can to give you what you need. If you haven't noticed you should pay attention and say thank you next time.

11. You realize that slowly you are becoming like your mother, and you are okay with it

After spending so much time together you realize you are slowly becoming like your mother and developing some of her habits, and you're completely okay with it. Why wouldn't you be? Your mom is the best.

12. You love her despite the fact that some of her logic seems crazy at times

She might not always make sense, but she still gives pretty solid pointers.

Thank you for everything you do momma. I love you

"Arthur's Perfect Christmas" Is The Perfect Holiday Special, Move Over Charlie Brown

Arthur Read is here to deliver the real meaning of Christmas.


As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

Many of us have old magazines lying around, fully read and not of much use anymore. However, we can use their bright colors and prints as a stylish and trendy wrapping paper!


It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
