An Open Letter To My Grandma

Thanks for being you

An Open Letter To My Grandma
Carly Lawless

Dear Gram,

I hope you’re sitting in your robe, sipping on your coffee, reading the morning paper as I’m writing this. I hope the news is on the TV at a high decibel and the temperature of your apartment is as high as it always is. I’m writing this letter to thank you for everything you have done over the past 22 years, for me, for my family, and for everyone else you have come in contact with. For buying me all the things mom wouldn’t and for spoiling me and my sister all the time. For telling all of your grandkids that we are the best things to happen to this world and that we are the smartest and the best at everything. You have not only left an impact on me, but you have in the world.

I want you to know that I look up to you and I strive to be the caring person that you have been your whole life. I promise to continue to get A’s and if I happen to bring home a B, I’ll ask myself what happened to the rest of the points, like you always asked me. I will continue to work hard in my education, my career, and my family life because I know I’ll always have your support.

As you read this, I’m sure you’re being your selfless self and wondering why on earth I would be writing all of this, but there’s a reason behind my madness. You spent your whole life, as a nurse, caring for others and its time you let us care for you. So regardless of where this new journey takes us, you will always be my favorite grandparent and I will love you until the end of time.


Your oldest grandchild (& as long as the rest don’t see this, your favorite)

Remember The True Meaning of Christmas

“Where are you Christmas? Why can’t I find you?”

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.

Recently, an article on Total Sorority Move called 23 Things My Boyfriend Better Not Get Me For Christmas, was going around on social media.

I would like to represent the girlfriends out there who disagree with her standpoint -- the girlfriends who would be more than happy to receive any of these gifts from their boyfriends.
