To My Boyfriend's Mom

To My Boyfriend's Mom

Thank you for raising the man of my dreams.

Every little girl dreams of who she will be with when they grow up. When I was a little girl this was something I wondered about all of the time and I am so happy with the man that God brought into my life. I have found the person that my heart belongs to and I want to thank you for raising him into becoming a very hardworking and loving person.

Before meeting you for the first time I was beyond nervous. I was so excited to meet the woman who raised the love of my life. I was hoping that you would approve of your son's girlfriend, and luckily, we clicked instantly! I am so lucky to have you in my life and I look forward to the many more laughs and memories we will share together.

I can't thank you enough for all that you do for myself and your son. I truly feel blessed to say that God not only brought the perfect guy into my life, but he also brought such a caring and loving mom into my life. You always go out of your way to make others happy, and for that, I am so grateful.

Thank you for teaching your son how to be respectful. No matter where we go, he always is the most out going and respectful person, not just to women, but to complete strangers. He makes friends anywhere we go and strives to make everyones' day better. The way he is respectful to myself, my little sisters, and family literally melts my heart and makes me love him even more. Without you, things would not be the way they are today, so thank you SO MUCH for teaching him respect.

Thank you for treating me like one of your own. There has never been a moment where I felt out of place or uncomfortable when around your family. Knowing that I get to be apart of this amazing family makes my heart so happy and I want you to know that this means the world to me.

Thank you for raising him in Christ. I am beyond blessed to have someone who shares the same love for our Lord and Savior. I will forever thank you for raising him to be such a strong and uplifting Christian. I can't thank you enough for this wonderful gift.

Thank you for always being there for me. Whenever I have a troubling time or I just need to talk, you are always there to lift me up. You have given me advice on every issue I have had in the past, so thank you so much for always being there for when times get tough.

There are an endless amount of reasons that I am thankful for, but most of all, thank you for allowing me to be with your son. He has changed my life in so many positive ways and has made me into such a better young woman. Without all that you do and for who you are, this wouldn't be possible. I am so blessed that God brought someone into my life that has shown me different things in life. You are a role model for the type of mother I would like to be in the future and you mean the world to me.

You are the funniest mother I have ever met and you make my life so happy. You are one of the sweetest people I know and you sure did raise a once in a lifetime kind of son. I could go on for hours about all of the reasons I love and appreciate you, but once again thank you for the perfect man that I get to call the love of my life.

Love always,

I'm The Girl Without A 'Friend Group'

And here's why I'm OK with it


Little things remind me all the time.

For example, I'll be sitting in the lounge with the people on my floor, just talking about how everyone's days went. Someone will turn to someone else and ask something along the lines of, "When are we going to so-and-so's place tonight?" Sometimes it'll even be, "Are you ready to go to so-and-so's place now? Okay, we'll see you later, Taylor!"

It's little things like that, little things that remind me I don't have a "friend group." And it's been like that forever. I don't have the same people to keep me company 24 hours of the day, the same people to do absolutely everything with, and the same people to cling to like glue. I don't have a whole cast of characters to entertain me and care for me and support me. Sometimes, especially when it feels obvious to me, not having a "friend group" makes me feel like a waste of space. If I don't have more friends than I can count, what's the point in trying to make friends at all?

I can tell you that there is a point. As a matter of fact, just because I don't have a close-knit clique doesn't mean I don't have any friends. The friends I have come from all different walks of life, some are from my town back home and some are from across the country. I've known some of my friends for years, and others I've only known for a few months. It doesn't really matter where they come from, though. What matters is that the friends I have all entertain me, care for me, and support me. Just because I'm not in that "friend group" with all of them together doesn't mean that we can't be friends to each other.

Still, I hate avoiding sticking myself in a box, and I'm not afraid to seek out friendships. I've noticed that a lot of the people I see who consider themselves to be in a "friend group" don't really venture outside the pack very often. I've never had a pack to venture outside of, so I don't mind reaching out to new people whenever.

I'm not going to lie, when I hear people talking about all the fun they're going to have with their "friend group" over the weekend, part of me wishes I could be included in something like that. I do sometimes want to have the personality type that allows me to mesh perfectly into a clique. I couldn't tell you what it is about me, but there is some part of me that just happens to function better one-on-one with people.

I hated it all my life up until very recently, and that's because I've finally learned that not having a "friend group" is never going to be the same as not having friends.

For The Girls Who Struggle With Loving Themselves

I often struggle with loving who I am and with what I believe I can accomplish.


All of my life I went to a private school where everyone knew everyone and didn't have to keep myself and my schoolwork all organized. I had my fair share of those "dumb" freshman year of college decisions, chasing after dumb boys, and many more. To this day, I still feel like I don't have it all down.

I am a transfer student who has learned very quickly how stressful it is, how tiring it gets, how living with another person that is not your family is, and having to fight the laziness of cooking food for yourself.

Exercising helps a girl love themselves way more than we might think. It'll get your mind flowing in a positive way and even help you sleep better depending on when you do the workout.

Anxiety take-over

Anxiety is probably one of the most common reasons why a girl wouldn't love herself.

NEVER give up.
