The Thank-You My Mom Never Received, Until Now

I love you so much, Mom.

The Thank-You My Mom Never Received, Until Now
Ashley Brooke Boyd

With Mother's Day coming up in a few short weeks, I have been thinking a lot about my mom and what she means to me. I can never thank her enough for all that she has done for me, and often I forget to remind her how awesome she is.

Whenever I am sick, sad, stressed, or smiling, there is always someone cheering me on. This person is my mom. She inspires me to do better and to be kinder, no matter how busy my life may seem. She is like a circus balancing act; she balances her work life with my family’s life and somehow manages to do it all. The soccer games, the dance competitions, the theatre productions — she is there for all of it. My mom is a supermom (like a superhero, but better).

My mom always inspires me to push myself to be the best me I can be. Even when I was little, she encouraged me to set big goals. Because of her constant encouragement, I am on the right path to achieve my lofty goal of living in New York City as a shop window designer for a fashion company. Even though my dream is unique and a little abstract, she has supported me and helped me find ways to reach this goal.

My mother is kind to everyone she meets. She has what you call “southern charm.” Even when someone is rude to her, she somehow finds it in her to be kind anyway. Her cheerful heart shines through her and radiates to everyone around her. When I’m with my mom, I am happy most of the time (except when she’s mad I haven’t cleaned my room). Her kindness inspires me also to be kind to everyone I meet.

Everyone could learn a lesson or two from my mom. She’s not the best cook, but she is the best at healing broken hearts. She can’t sing, but she does give amazing hugs. Our home is full of love and laughter. She knows the worth of things in life. She makes time for the important things, even if it means she has to give something else up. My mother has encouraged me, cared for me, inspired me, and loved me. I wish everyone had a mom like my mom.

Thank you, Mom. I love you.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
