To The Mother Of My Boyfriend, Thank You For Raising Him Right

To the woman who raised him,

For teaching him right from wrong, yes from no, and the right way to treat a girl: thank you. All the countless hours of don’t do this or don’t do that have paid off. You raised a man who not only cares for me, but brightens every person’s day that he encounters. He is a role model for all those who look up to him and most importantly he is a family man. Family should always be the number one priority in anyone’s life and it is an integral part of his. He treats you well and if there is one way to judge what kind of person a guy is watch how they treat their mother. That’s a lesson I learned from you and one that he demonstrates perfectly.

Because of you, he knows the right way to talk to, touch, and love a girl and refuses to allow anyone to do any different. He has respect for all females and acts in such a manner that encourages others to have the same. Your son puts an emphasis on the well-being of others. His caring personality is in thanks to no one other than yourself. All you do for others has influenced him to go above and beyond to help those in need.

He’s a lover and he’s a fighter. He knows how to balance the two and at what time each is necessary. He loves unconditionally and makes me feel like the luckiest girl in the world every single day. He also knows when he has to stand up for what’s right and he has no problem protecting and defending his beliefs. He uses his strength in a comforting way, never harmful or out anger. He supports me in any and everything that I do and has been my number one fan from the start. He encourages me to be the best person I can be and I try my hardest to do so.

I could never get through a thank you without mentioning his ability to cook, because thanks to you we make a pretty great team in the kitchen. Teamwork is one of our fortes in general; we like to compete when it comes to games and sports, but his ability to be a team member is something I greatly appreciate.

Lastly, thank you for bringing him into this world and raising him the way you did. I never thought I would find someone as compatible as we are and I have you to thank for my happiness. His smile lights up every room he is in, children love him, people are attracted to his compassionate personality, and everyone knows that his family is to thank because the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. Your mother-son relationship is unmatched and one that many mothers strive to have with their children. One final thank you for raising the man of my dreams, I couldn’t imagine life without him.

He really is a great guy, and I’m not just saying that because he’s your son.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.

"Arthur's Perfect Christmas" Is The Perfect Holiday Special, Move Over Charlie Brown

Arthur Read is here to deliver the real meaning of Christmas.


As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead

Everyone needs a day to themselves sometimes.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

On Sunday Morning

Breaking Free

Sunset Girl

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.
