Reasons Mom's are Truly a Gift from God

In honor of Mother’s Day, I have been thinking of all the things my mom does for my family and me. Although I couldn’t write nearly all of them, here are a few things that moms do for us.

They find that shirt that’s right in front of you, but just you can’t seem to find.

Sometimes we have trouble seeing things that are right in front of us, but sometimes things are hiding and only our mom can seem to find them. She somehow remembers where everything gets placed, and everyone in our family is lucky that she does otherwise no one would know where anything is at. It has to be some sort of superpower.

They love you unconditionally.

In the presence of your mom, you can always feel safe. Whether you mess up for the thousandth time or do something they don’t necessarily approve of, they will still love you. And when they tell you “I will always love you, no matter what”, you know they mean it and those are the most reassuring words you will ever hear.

They are always there to listen, and when you don’t want to talk, they’re always there to offer a much-needed hug.

Sometimes you need to talk it out, and you want someone who will just listen. Mom’s are the perfect candidate. They will listen without judgment and they will always be on your side. And for the times that you don’t want to talk about it, the hugs they give can make almost anything better, instantly.

They make sure you never go hungry.

“Are you hungry?” or “what sounds good?” are questions that are frequently asked by mothers. If you do happen to be hungry, and even times when you’re not, they offer to make you something which is always hard to pass up.

They’re always willing to help with all the adult things you quite haven’t figured out yet.

Don’t want to go to the doctors by yourself because you’re getting a shot? You don’t have to; moms are always up to holding your hand. Don’t like making difficult phone calls when something goes wrong? Mom’s usually offer to help you out; this isn’t their first rodeo. Need to know anything about your insurance, your bills, or those spots on your leg? If they don’t already know it, you can guarantee they will do everything possible to figure it out for you.

They know how to make you laugh.

You and your mother have countless inside jokes. You could go on for hours talking about "remember when’s." She knows the things that will make you laugh until you cry. Even at the age of 20 she will still pin you down and tickle you, because she can and because she knows every one of your tickle spots.

Moms are a special kind of human. They are such a blessing every single day and deserve the praise, not only on Mother’s Day, but on every day of the year. There is a reason they are often referred to as supermoms. These sweet individuals are always trying to make our lives easier, and bless their souls for that.

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.


Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!

The Gift Of Basketball

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.

Plus Size Appreciation: How I Learned To Love My Body

Because it is okay to not be "skinny."


In America, we tend to stick up our noses at certain things that aren't the norm. For example, people who are overweight, or the politically correct term “obese." Men and women who are overweight get so much backlash because they are not skinny or "in shape," especially, African-American women, who are typically known for having wider hips and thicker thighs. Robert Darryl, an African-American filmmaker, explains the overall intention of the body mass index in his follow-up sequel, “America the Beautiful 2: The Thin Commandments."
