My Mom Is My Best Friend

Oh, Mother Deary (yes I call my Mom that), you knew this was bound to happen sooner or letter. A full article dedicated to just YOU. Well, and to say how much I love and miss you.

My Mom Is My Best Friend
Lauren Carpenter

I know last week was a whirlwind of emotions, and I'm sorry. You deserve nothing but the best, and I cannot tell you enough about how much I appreciate you.

Since I was little, you were and have always been my role model, well and my best friend. Literally, sometimes, we act like the exact same person. What did you say this past weekend? It was like as if you had cloned me we are so much alike?

For those of you who don't know, I am a full-fledged Momma's Girl. Always have been, always will. She is my rock. We think the same things, have a lot of the same outfits, talk the same sometimes, like seriously, I don't know we are so much alike.

Mom, I know over the years you have endured a lot. Raising five kids, I being the only girl. Working endless hours so that we can live the best life possible, and always making sure that us kids were the top priority, whatever that may take.

Once you and Dad got divorced, I wasn't sure what it would be like living with three new older brothers (let's just say we got into a lot of arguments), or what it would be like when you moved to Georgia for an amazing opportunity. But. We made things work, and when you all ended up moving back to our hometown to be closer to me, I felt whole again. It must have been hard, you coming down for a month at a time just to spend time with me, because that five-hour car ride is truly unbearable. However, you don't realize how much that meant to me.

I know it must be hard, after almost 28 years of kids being in and out of the school, I being the youngest, to have an empty house. Going off to college last year was weird because I have always pretty much been right by your side. You were never far away. I have never had a babysitter, nor have I ever had to worry about you being gone for an important event, or really have to be far from me at all. You always went out of your way to make the best meals, keep us kids in the new styles, teach us to use our manners, and overall be a well-rounded person. You have exceeded what other Mothers strive to do.

I know work gets hard sometimes. And stressful. And I know that you only still continue to do it because you want me and all of us kids to live comfortably, and I just want to say thank you for everything. Everything that you have ever done for me.

I can be tough at times too. Well, let's just say a lot of times. As well, as raising four boys, all the baseball, football, and soccer games, must have been aggravating at times. I ask for a lot of unnecessary things, which to be honest, I would get sick of me if I were you. Taking care of the dogs, I just don't know how you do it! There is just so much you do, a lot of which I take you for granted for.

This article is just to say...

Mom, I love and I miss you, and I cannot even describe how much I thank you for everything that you have done and continue to do for me. Thank you for being my best friend.

The Saturday Called Life

The hard truth about losing a loved one, and the hope that comes along with it.

Lilia Valdez

We all are scared of something. Some people are scared of the ocean, others of spiders or snakes. For me, it's the unknown. I don't like uncertainty nor do I like being blindsided. Due to this, my biggest fear in life was death.

You are not alone - NY Yankees charge their players for WIFI on flights

It was recently in the news that the NY Yankees do not provide free wifi for their players on away game flights!!! That's earth shattering news because teams usually charter flights for their players, coaches, and support staff. These flights are typically equipped with amenities such as Wi-Fi, comfortable seating, and in-flight entertainment.

I Remember That Saturday

A memory that I will forever remember.


It was a Saturday night. We had nothing else to do besides be with one another. We were normally always in your bedroom watching television and talking about random topics that popped into our little brains. The only difference was, that Saturday night was nothing like the rest.
