An Open Letter to my Mom

You always know best.

I hope you know you are my biggest hero and my best friend. You have always been the one I look up to. You are strong, independent, beautiful, confident, loving, and so much more that you show everyday. I strive to one day be a mother, a wife, and a friend like you. I am so blessed for the relationship we have grown to have in just the few short months since I left for college; our daily phone calls are what get me through some days. Thank you for being someone that I can always count on, no matter what.

I hope you recognize how much I appreciate you. You have been my biggest cheerleader since my days as a soccer player and even more so now as a runner. There is nothing you hate more than the cold yet you are willing to sit in the rain and wind to wait for me to run for less than six minutes at a time. Not only that, but you are the hardest working woman I know. I often times take for granted how much you actually do for us, but it really is incredible and I thank you for it.

I hope you know your love is inspiring. Your love is truly contagious and has taught me so much. The love you and Dad share is something I hope to experience one day and the love you have for our family is obvious in the way you always put us first. You have taught me to love God and to put Him first in all that I do not only by what you have told me, but by the way you live your life, and I thank you for that.

Thank you, Mom, for all that you have and will do for me. I would be so lost without your constant love and guidance. Honestly, I can't really imagine my life without you, but that doesn't matter because I wouldn't be here without you.

Thank you for being you.


Your daughter.

Dating A 'Type-A' Girl

You have probably been asked before if you were a Type-A or Type-B personality. People who are considered to be "Type A" tend to be impatient, competitive and ambitious.
