Thank You Mommy

No one can love like a mother does.

Thank You Mommy

In honor of Mother's Day I would like to dedicate this article to my amazing mother, and all the other mothers in the world. There are so many things our mothers do for us, and I honestly think it's impossible to complete that list, but here is my attempt at acknowledging three of the most important things mothers do.

1: Thank you mom, for giving me life.

It's a scientific fact that I wouldn't be who I am without you. You went through how ever many months carrying me around in you followed by however many hours of labor to bring me into this world, which was then followed by however many years of making me one of your top priorities. You raised me to do good, to believe in myself, and I strive each and every day to make you proud.

For the mothers who did not carry their child, or did but lost their angel along the way, do not think for a second that you aren't worth thanking. I know nothing about being a mother, but I do know that being a mother is more than being pregnant and giving birth. It's about raising your child right and making sure they are living a good life.

2: Thank you mom, for holding me when I cry.

From when I was an infant who was tired, to a toddler with a scraped knee, to a teenager who had their first heartbreak, to an adult who has no idea what the hell is going on, you've always been there with your arms wide open. You have never hesitated to be there for me, and I cannot believe I am lucky enough to have you in my life.

3: Thank you mom, for being the most important teacher.

No one has taught me to accept myself the way I am, to respect myself and others, and the value of life the way you have. You sat down with me and talked things through with me, and worked with me until I understood the importance of whatever lesson it was I needed to learn.

There is an overwhelming amount of other things my mother has done for me and it would be impossible to list everything. I hope one day I can be an amazing parent like you; even if I were to be a fraction as inspirational as you, I would be spectacular. Thank you mom. And although you deserve more than this article, I hope it sheds at least some light onto how perfect I see you to be. You deserve the world, because that's what you are to me.

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).

Sunset Girl

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.
