Thanks For Being My Mom AND My Best Friend

An open letter just to say "Thank you"

Thanks For Being My Mom AND My Best Friend
Avery Shead

Dear Mom,

I just wanted to say "Thank you," because I don't say it enough. Thank you for all you do and for ALWAYS being there for me no matter what.

Thanks for being my rock and never giving up when times get tough. I barely ever hear you complain when honestly, you have 27834 reasons to complain, but instead you don't because you want to stay strong for us.

Thanks for being an amazing role model. I've always looked up to you for how hard you work and thinking of others before yourself. You taught me to be kind, caring, put God first and to do the right thing and it has helped me throughout life. When times get tough, I have my morals figured out so I know everything will be alright.

Thanks for being so hardworking with whatever you do. I've always loved the song "Somebody's Hero" by Jamie O'Neal because this is so perfect: "She didn't get a check every week like a nine-to-fiver, But she's been a waiter, and a cook and a taxi driver." Thanks for being just an awesome Mom and now that you have a job, I couldn't be more proud of how hard you work and how amazing you're doing at it. #RealMVP

Thanks for telling me how it is. Sometimes growing up, I didn't like this because tough love can hurt sometimes but now I know you meant it for the right reasons and to make me a stronger person. I know I can always come to you about advice for anything and you'll be completely honest with me.

Thanks for all the vent sessions. I know I can talk to you about anything and you'll be there to listen, from break ups to friend problems to drama at school. This is what makes you not only my mom, but my best friend and I couldn't be more thankful for that.

Thank you for all of the little things. All of the little things do not go unnoticed, from taking care of me when I am sick, taking care of my dog when they don't let us have dogs at college (#toosoon), making home-cooked meals for me when I am not away at school, letting me have the good side... well sometimes, to doing my laundry for me.

I am so lucky to have such an amazing mom like you and someone I can call my best friend forever. When I grow up, I aspire to be half of the woman you are. Thank you, Mom.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
