"... I am your godmother and you are my goddaughter."

9 Things Every Godmother Wants Their Goddaughter To Know
Melanie Campbell

In the last two years, I have learned a lot about being a godmother. The moment I was blessed with being my niece's godmother, I didn't expect to have such a major impact on her life. I didn't think I'd be able to physically watch her grow and learn. I didn't think I'd have this ride with her.

Here's 9 things every godmother should want their goddaughter to know:

1. It's Okay To Come To Me Instead of Momma

Baby girl, I am here for you through thick and thin. I will always be there for you. Sometimes, we need someone from the outside looking in. I promise you, I will always be here to listen. Sometimes, we need our godmother's before our moms and that's okay.

2. You Are 'My Daughter'

Just because I have my own biological daughter, it does not mean you aren't just as important to me. I helped to raised you. I watched you take your first steps. I was there through it all (well except your birth, but that's okay). I will protect, love, and cherish you like I do my daughter. As far as I'm concerned, you are my daughter too.

3. Come To Me With Your Struggles

You can come to me with any and every problem. If it's something that will change your life, I will help you through that too.

4. Boy Problems Are OK

I will help you with whatever boy problems you have. I will teach you what I've learned over the years with your uncle. The best thing I can say to you now is boys suck and it's okay to cry over them.

5. I Will Be Your Fashionista Buddy

Your mom doesn't really know how to match your socks, so come to me. I will take you school shopping. I will teach you how to match your black sparkly pants, but not with the blue top that won't go with it.

Don't worry, honey, we will figure it out together.

6. I Will Be Your Best Friend

I will be your best friend. I'll give you all the candy and sugar you want. I'll send you home to mommy with such a sugar rush that she will send you back home with me. I will take you shopping and I will do everything and anything for you. I promise to even give you my last cookie...even if I wanted it.

7. I Will Be Your Other Mom

It's okay if you call me, mom. I'm sure your mom and I can share that role. However, there will always be your mom that brought you into this world. I will fight for you, protect you, and criticize you. I will be your biggest supporter. I will do whatever you need me to do to get you somewhere. I will never tell you you can't do it, because I know, you can do it.

8. Even If We Are Miles Apart, They Won't Separate Us

I will come to you whenever you need me. I will make time for you. We can have just you and me days. I will always answer your bedtime calls. I will always answer you when you call me at work. I will come to you. You are my daughter too and I promise miles will not change that.

9. I Will Be The "Fun" Aunt

I will be the fun aunt. Every now and again...anyway. I will try to make sure that we always have fun together. Whether it's pulling you on blankets across our living room floor or just making a cake together. I will try to be the fun aunt. But, you do need discipline.

I will teach you, learn from you, and be with you through everything. Your mom gave me the honor of being your mom too. I am so thankful.

You are my light and my sunshine. You are my smalls. You are my daughter. I will teach you things that mommy might not be able to. I will learn from mommy too, because this ride is tough. I will make days with just you and I. I will help you through it all. For you are my goddaughter and I am your godmother.

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
