55 Reasons To Be Thankful For Your Mom

55 Reasons To Be Thankful For Your Mom

Always love your mother because you will never get another.


A mother does not need a cape to be considered a superhero. They are the ones who find it their responsibility to provide for their children. They simply want the best for their kids without asking for anything in return. They have taken care of you and raised you since day one- they are actually your "day ones." Our mothers are most of the time a family rock, bending over backwards to support the family, loving you no matter what, and often we do not always say thank you and have it not be for a favor. So take a minute out of your day, and every single day, to thank them for the greatest gift they have given you: their time- a portion of their own life they gave up for you and will never get back. If you need some suggestions, here is a list of only SOME of the many reasons you should be thankful for your mothers.

1. Thank you for giving me life.

2. Because I wouldn't be here without you (literally).

This coffee brand is USDA organic. Newman's Own Keurig coffee flavors are all organic. They have French Roast, Decaf, and a Special Blend. I'm in a committed relationship with the French Roast flavor. The smell alone from dispensing 1 cup of coffee sets a whole cafe jazz vibe.

I'm already relaxed when I smell the coffee all ready for dressing. The way I make my coffee is simple and sweet, literally.
