Thank You To My Best Friend's Mom

Thank you momma B.

Thank You To My Best Friend's Mom
Whisper Chaney

I want to start with thank you. I'm not thanking you for everything you have done for me, but with how you raised your daughter, my best friend. I don't know how or why she turned out the way she did, but she has been the biggest blessing in my life and everyone else she meets. Thank you for teaching her how to care endlessly and how to love forever. Thank you for teaching her how to forgive everyone and everything, because I mess up a lot. Thank you for being her mom.

I guess now I should thank you for everything you have done for me. Thank you for the ENDLESS sleepovers and now letting her live with me. Thank you for the second home and the open arms. Thank you for always giving me advice, whether I want it or not. Thank you for forgiving me as much as your daughter does. Thank you for teaching me to just let things happen. You taught me to let go and let her chase her dreams. No matter how far she goes, she will come back. In teaching me that, you taught me to chase my own dreams. You have taught me to let something go and if it comes back it is yours to keep, of not, then it was never yours. You taught me an endless amount of stuff and forever I will be thanking you.

I can't tell you how much your family has impacted me. Between the sleepovers, the funerals, the bonfires, the dates, the parties and the yard sales, you have also taught me how to care endlessly, love forever, and to forgive everyone and everything.

So really thank you. Without you, and many others, I would not be the person I am today. I love you momma B. Thank you for letting me be the daughter you never saw coming.

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.


On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.
