No, it isn't Mother's Day or anything like that. Don't panic. You didn't forget it or miss it. The great thing is, it doesn't have to be Mother's Day for you to send some love your mama's way. You should remind her that you love her whenever you can. Not only did she birth you, but she's the best friend a girl can ask for –– for a variety of reasons.

1. She was there for all of the ups and downs.

Your mom was there for every good and bad you've experienced almost your entire life. From scraping your knee on the playground to your first break-up, from potty training to graduation. She has shared all of the tears and all of the laughter. She knows the names of every crush you've ever had, all of your best friends, and all of your worst enemies. She's seen you do embarrassing things, and let's be honest, she's probably seen you behave like a big jerk. But, no matter you've done or said in a misplaced fit of frustration she has never judged you, and she always still loves you after the fact.

2. She knows you better than you know yourself.

Because your mom has been there for both the highlight reel and bloopers of your existence, she probably knows more about you than anyone else. She knows your pet peeves, your bad habits, your darkest secrets. She never forgets your birthday and always knows what the best gift would be for you. She has your favorite colors, meals, movies, and books memorized. When you're not feeling well or you're sad, she almost always knows what the problem is or how to help. She also always knows what to say when you need advice.

3. She is always the person you call.

Speaking of needing advice, your mother is always the first person you call when you do. Even after you move out and go off to do you- whether it be for college or something else. Why? Well, as was stated earlier, she always knows what to say.

She knows you. She loves you. She's seen you through it all. She's also lived a lot of life for herself. She's a grown woman who has experienced a lot, and she usually knows a thing or two about the way the world works.

If you want to know what medicine to get for your cold, if you are concerned about a weird rash, if you have a question about your taxes, or if your car is making a funny noise, your mom is almost always the person you pick up the phone to call. She always picks up, and she always has the answer.

We should all be grateful for mothers. My mom is my best friend. Moms are important and necessary, throughout your whole childhood and adolescence, and even after you are an adult out on your own. She will always be there for you, and she'll always love you. She has the best answers to your dilemmas, and she always cares.

She knows you, and she cares about you, more than any other friend you have probably ever would or could. So, thank your mother today for being the best friend a daughter could ask for. It doesn't take much, even just a small text to let her know you're thinking of her. Let her know you appreciate her.

Thank her for being there for you.

Dear Mom,

I hope you know that I appreciate you.

You are the hardest working woman I know, continuously putting your family before yourself. Thank you for doing all of the tedious jobs that no one wants to do like keeping the house in order, cooking the food, and doing the laundry. Thank you for constantly putting up with my siblings and I. Thank you for always supporting us in our interests and hobbies. Thank you for investing in our daily lives and listening to our minor problems. Thank you for always loving us unconditionally.

I hope you know I'm sorry.

I know I can be a big pain in the butt sometimes, and for that I'm sorry. I'm sorry for yelling at you, arguing with you, not listening to you, and making dumb decisions at times, but thank you for loving me anyways. Thank you for helping me stand back up, teaching me right from wrong, and pushing me to be the very best version of me.

I hope you know your love inspires me.

You live your life with a love that is contagious. Whether its nurturing love, tough love, friendly love, or romantic love, you have it all and you show it daily. The love you and Dad share is something I hope to find one day and the love you have for your family is evident in the way you constantly put us first.

I hope you know that you are my biggest role model and hero.

Ever since I was a little girl, you have been the person I have looked to in my life. You are strong, independent, confident, loving, supportive, and nurturing-- everything I strive to be as a woman and as a future mother. You give the best advice, even when I don't always take it. Though, I should know better by now because mothers always know best. Without you in my life, I honestly don't know where I'd be.

I hope you know that you are my best friend.

Not only are you my biggest cheerleader supporting me in everything I do, you are the person I talk to about everything, whether it's good or bad. I'm honestly so thankful for the relationship we share because I've had countless screwups and you literally give the best advice. Seriously, thank you for being the person I can count on at all times, at any time of the day or even night to just talk with. I mean we really do have some of the best conversations, best laughs, best cries (when needed), and the most fun watching cheesy chick flicks together or going on crazy shopping adventures.

I hope you know that I am here for you--until the very end.

I don't mean to make you cry or anything -- even though you probably already are, but I want you to know that when the time comes, I'm going to be there for you just like all of these years you've been here for me. I will be there to support you, talk with you, laugh with you, cry with you, and love you for all of my life.

Honestly, I can't really imagine my life without you -- but it doesn't matter because I wouldn't be here without you, so here's to you.

Thank you for being you.

Love you lots!

Your daughter.

Christmas time is here and this is the spirit filled with love and joy. This is known as the most wonderful time of year and it truly is. Some people say that it is even known as a magical holiday because many magical, heart-warming things happen during Christmas.

Here are 7 things that are sure to get you into the holiday spirit. Let's kick this off with number 1.

1.  Scented Candles

I know you are thinking like this is good, but not good enough to be number one. We will not focus on priority but instead the overall purpose this serves for getting you into the holiday spirit. Scented candles like apple cinnamon, sugar cookie, mint and candy cane are good scents to remind you that the holidays are here. Light one up and hopefully you'll feel a little warm inside.

2. Wreaths

Wreaths can be used year-round depending on how they are decorated. If you don't know what a wreath is, many people hang them up on the door during the holidays. Some wreaths are scented and some are just decorated beautifully; it all depends on what you want for your house and the holidays.

3. Stockings

Buying stockings to hang around the living room is always helpful to get you going for the holidays. Stockings symbolize Christmas and small gifts inside. This is a very festive items that children love and well, me too.

4. Pecans

Throughout my years of growth, my mother would always buy a huge bag of pecans and would sit them in a glass bowl on the living room table. Whenever we would be lounging around the house, we would grab a napkin and get to crackin'. Any time that my mom did this preparation, I knew that it was time for Christmas and it would always make the holidays a little bit better for me. Weird? I know.

5. Candy Canes

I LOVE a good candy cane. Candy canes are such a big portion of my life when it comes to the holiday season. Candy canes have the ability to satisfy me in so many ways. One, being that I can eat them and two, the fact that I can give them to someone else to make their day. How can you not accept a candy cane? Especially the fruity, pink and red kind.

6. Christmas Lights

Christmas lights make such a statement. They bring the holiday season to life and makes everything seem magical. Whether the Christmas lights are decorated outside of the house or inside of the house. They can bring a smile to your face.

7. Holiday Movies

The movies are the BEST part of the holiday season. The Home Alone Series, Jack Frost, Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer, and many more. There's one specific movie that really makes me get into the holiday spirit and that's How The Grinch Stole Christmas. This movie is iconic! It brings so many elements of Christmas into the movie alongside of comedy, love and joy. Wow. If you have not seen it, I recommend that you do.

I hope that these seven things can get you all into the holiday spirit. Christmas is a time spent with family to celebrate each other and life. Hopefully, this article is beneficial to kick off your holiday spirits.
