10 Things We Forget To Thank Our Mothers For
Monique Lopez

Our mothers do so much for us, sometimes we notice it, sometimes we don't, and sometimes we forget to thank them. Being a mother is a full-time job, even if you are in college and out of the house, they are still doing so much for you. so here are some things that you should say thank you for.

1. Thank you for being my best friend.

At the end of the day, you are the one I run to. When I need boy advice, I take yours before I do anyone else. Our love our days out, and the silly selfies. I have friends, but you're the top. Thank you!

2. Thank you for being my biggest critic.

People say that your biggest critic is yourself, and although it is. You are too. You only want the best for me, so when something isn't to my best ability and it can be better, you tell me, you don't hold back and you make sure I do better.

3. Thank you for all the years of driving me around.

Shopping trips, sleepovers, parties, or just to get food, when I needed you to drive you did. Although I have my own car now, I never thanked you for it.

4. Thank you for being the super parent.

You are not only Mom, but you are dad too. You aren't like other parents, but you're a super mom! I couldn't thank you more!

5. Thank you for spending so much money.

You not only spend money on what's needed but on me. If I were to put together how much you've spent on me and give it back to you, you'd be a millionaire! So thank you for wasting all your money on silly things for me!

6. Thank you for teaching me to love everything and everyone around me.

Live each day and work harder than you did the day before, dream big, you can do anything you set your mind to, treat those how you want to be treated, love everyone, keep your friends closer and your enemies closer, don't even make enemies, make friends, help those in need, don't discriminate. So on and so forth. You taught me to love the world around me and to love the people around me no matter who they are or where they've come from. Thank you for making me love hard, and endlessly

7. OH! Thanks for the diaper changes.

I was kinda of just sitting here thinking of the great things you've done for me and you changing my diapers popped into my head, and that's really gross, so thanks for that!

8. Thank you for being my wings.

Without you, I wouldn't know how high I could fly, let alone know how capable I was of being able not to reach for the skies, or for the stars, but to reach for another galaxy and fly beyond that.

9. Thank you for giving up days with your friends for me.

Your friends were out doing fun things and you gave up those days for me, I not only feel guilty for those does, but I thank you for those days a million times!

10. Thank you for being you.

All a child can ask for is that their mother is just them. You are funny, caring, loving, a good mother and a good friend, and beautiful. I am who I am today because of you. You are the reason, and it's because you are you! Thank you!

I could go on, but I would have to make a book. You did and gave up so much for me. Thank you for everything you do and thank you for being the greatest mom anyone could ever ask for!

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

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!"
