A Well-Deserved Thank You To My Boyfriend's Mom

A Well-Deserved Thank You To My Boyfriend's Mom

Thank you for raising such an amazing soul.

To the woman who raised him,

I am very lucky to have spent the time I have with your son. He never fails to make me laugh, and loves me even on my worst days. He is caring and supportive. He never says anything to hurt me. He's respectful. He works hard at everything that he does. And I owe it all to the woman who raised him. You taught him right from wrong and how to be a gentleman. I know he was probably a handful growing up, and you deserve endless thank you's for raising him to be the man he is today.

He really is a momma's boy. He does everything that he can to make you proud. He loves you more than words can explain, and I know he appreciates everything that you've done for him to make him the man he is today.

Thank you for teaching him to be respectful. He doesn't just respect women, he respects everyone. You taught him well. He calls me "beautiful" instead of "hot." He holds doors open for me. He pays for things for me, despite my attempts to pay sometimes 'cause "that's how he was raised."

You taught him how to treat a woman. He puts up a tough act, but in reality, he's got a huge heart and he's the sweetest person. We get into petty arguments sometimes, but he never fails to make me feel loved and special every day and I have you to thank for that.

Thank you for teaching him the value of hard work. He has so much perseverance and he's so dedicated to everything that he does. He has so much drive whether that be at work, in school, or in his everyday life.

Thank you for supporting his soccer career all those years. Sitting in the rainy weather, traveling countless hours to games, and doing whatever you could whenever you could to support his love of the game. I played soccer for a season when I was six, so I don't know much of what the job entails, much less to be the support system that you were and I'm definitely not the sports fanatic that he is. But I love watching how he lights up when he talks to me about his time playing and hearing about his passion for the sport.

Thank you for accepting me into your home and giving me the opportunity to make memories with your family. You're one of the sweetest women I've met, and I see where your son gets his loving and big-hearted personality from.

Thank you for raising the man of my dreams,

Your son's girlfriend.

8 Reasons Why My Dad Is the Most Important Man In My Life

Forever my number one guy.

Growing up, there's been one consistent man I can always count on, my father. In any aspect of my life, my dad has always been there, showing me unconditional love and respect every day. No matter what, I know that my dad will always be the most important man in my life for many reasons.

1. He has always been there.

Literally. From the day I was born until today, I have never not been able to count on my dad to be there for me, uplift me and be the best dad he can be.

2. He learned to adapt and suffer through girly trends to make me happy.

I'm sure when my dad was younger and pictured his future, he didn't think about the Barbie pretend pageants, dressing up as a princess, perfecting my pigtails and enduring other countless girly events. My dad never turned me down when I wanted to play a game, no matter what and was always willing to help me pick out cute outfits and do my hair before preschool.

3. He sends the cutest texts.

Random text messages since I have gotten my own cell phone have always come my way from my dad. Those randoms "I love you so much" and "I am so proud of you" never fail to make me smile, and I can always count on my dad for an adorable text message when I'm feeling down.

4. He taught me how to be brave.

When I needed to learn how to swim, he threw me in the pool. When I needed to learn how to ride a bike, he went alongside me and made sure I didn't fall too badly. When I needed to learn how to drive, he was there next to me, making sure I didn't crash.

5. He encourages me to best the best I can be.

My dad sees the best in me, no matter how much I fail. He's always there to support me and turn my failures into successes. He can sit on the phone with me for hours, talking future career stuff and listening to me lay out my future plans and goals. He wants the absolute best for me, and no is never an option, he is always willing to do whatever it takes to get me where I need to be.

6. He gets sentimental way too often, but it's cute.

Whether you're sitting down at the kitchen table, reminiscing about your childhood, or that one song comes on that your dad insists you will dance to together on your wedding day, your dad's emotions often come out in the cutest possible way, forever reminding you how loved you are.

7. He supports you, emotionally and financially.

Need to vent about a guy in your life that isn't treating you well? My dad is there. Need some extra cash to help fund spring break? He's there for that, too.

8. He shows me how I should be treated.

Yes, my dad treats me like a princess, and I don't expect every guy I meet to wait on me hand and foot, but I do expect respect, and that's exactly what my dad showed I deserve. From the way he loves, admires, and respects me, he shows me that there are guys out there who will one day come along and treat me like that. My dad always advises me to not put up with less than I deserve and assures me that the right guy will come along one day.

For these reasons and more, my dad will forever be my No. 1 man. I love you!

Newsflash! It's Time For Everybody To Love Everybody

Come on, people, get it together.


I, personally, think it's time for everybody to just start loving each other. Now listen, this doesn't mean you need to actually love everyone, but at least accept them. Acceptance is the closest thing we are gonna get to loving each other.

Let me tell you a little something: politics at the moment are very messy. No matter which side it is, it's messy. There is no denying that. If you try to deny that, then good for you, you're not helping anybody. If you really want some change, you need to start being the bigger person. Change isn't about who can yell about something louder or who has the "better" argument, it's about being respectful.

Just because someone has an opposing view does not mean you need to yell at them. Does yelling solve anything ever? Maybe temporarily, like for 2 minutes, but that's about as long as you're gonna get. There's absolutely no need to indirectly say something about certain individuals on social media. Yes, there is freedom of speech, but everybody should keep in mind why they have that right and why they still have it.

I do not understand why it is so hard to be respectful of one another. If someone goes after another person talking about how absolutely terrible it is of them thinking something should be illegal, the person who's being yelled at should respectfully ignore the other individual's disrespectful remarks. If the individual does not stop, then they are not aware that they are making no difference in the world.

What I'm trying to get at here is that in order to love each other, we really need to accept all our differences. If we really want change we need to go right to the sources, not just yell at each other from across the street. If everyone learned to accept each other, life would be a whole lot easier. Is this ever going to happen? Of course not. This is the solution though, whether you think so or not.
