Thank You To My Uncle

Thanks for being such a strong, positive role model in my life.

Thank You To My Uncle
Tammy Krueger

You were there when I was born. You were there for my high school graduation. You were there for my first home run. You were there then, and you will continue to be there for me throughout my life.

I just want to thank you. Thank you for your endless love and support. For always being willing to show me a thing or two, and to pick me up when I've fallen down. Thank you for all of the advice, and stories of your experiences.

You are always willing to help me. Whenever my car has broken down (which has happened all too often), you have always volunteered to help. Many times you have spent hours in my driveway, figuring out the problem and showing me how you fixed it. Often, you would enlist me to help. I really appreciate that. Now, I know quite a bit about motors, and what it means when things go wrong.

You are always there when I need a pick-me-up. Even if it's just a text, you always remind me that I am loved and that you are thinking of me. When I was younger, you would stop by with stuffed animals from the claw machine. At the time, I was so excited to get a new toy. Now it means so much more to me. It shows me that even if you were just walking out of the store, you thought of me and showed me that I am important.

You show me endless love. Through all of the back and forth banter, and all of the times you have pestered me to the point of driving me nuts, you have shown me love. You illustrate to me that there are good, caring people out there. You are one of them. And I am so thankful for you.

You give good advice. Whether it be about cars, how to fix them and maintain them, or about boys, or the best routes to get places, you always have an answer to everything. You would give me pointers after softball games. Or you would teach me about sprint cars and NASCAR and all of the components to a winning team. I know a lot more than the average girl, thanks to you.

You also give me a lot of crap. You have shown me what it is like to have a thick skin -- to be strong and tough and to stand up to others and how to defend myself. Thanks for always being supportive of me. For coming to my softball games, and for helping me make tough decisions. I know that you are always a person that I am able to go to with anything.

You have also shown me that I should never lose hope. When things don't go my way or I am frustrated, I should always persevere. I know things haven't exactly gone the way you would have planned in your life, but you have always kept an optimistic outlook, and a positive attitude on life.

If I could, I would want everyone to experience what it is like to have such a great uncle like you. Thank you for being such a strong, positive role model in my life.

Because I'm still reminiscing about simpler times.


The Christmas season is coming to an end, but it's not too late to get some last-minute movies in! Unfortunately, this year didn't look like a typical Christmas. While we can't have any big Christmas parties or family gatherings, we can still celebrate at home! Christmas is the best time for nostalgia, and we could all use some warm and fuzzy feelings as we wrap up a tough year and enter a new one that hasn't been proven any calmer, either.

As a kid who grew up in the 2000s, I can think of some of my favorite staple Christmas movies. If you're looking for recommendations or just a walk down memory lane, check out the list below.

9 Reasons 'The Wilds' Should Be Your Next Binge Watch

The Wilds is the Best New Show on Amazon Prime


As we enter the new year, you might be looking for a great show to kick-off 2021. Look no further, I have the perfect recommendation. "The Wilds" was released on Amazon Prime last month and has been gaining traction steadily since then. This series of 10 one-hour episodes tells the stories of eight girls who find themselves on a deserted island after their plane crashed while they are on their way to a resort. Unlike other survival shows, there's a bit more to the story than what first meets the eye. This show is unique in characters, storytelling methods, and plot.

If you aren't convinced yet, allow me to provide you with a list of further persuasion.
