When God Gives You A Daughter

When God Gives You A Daughter

When God Gives You A Daughter

I rarely thought about becoming a mother, but on the rare occasion that I did, I always pictured myself having a little girl. I had the perfect name picked out and I picked the name when I was 5. So that had to have meant I was destined to have a little girl, right? It made sense that when I found out that I was indeed going to have a daughter, I cried like a baby during my ultrasound.

I wasn't just happy that I would bring a beautiful little girl into this world, I was also proud of the fact that God had given me the special job that is raising a little girl. Not only am I responsible for raising my little human to be a functioning member of society, but I am also responsible for setting the example of what a good mom looks like so that when shes ready, she'll be the best mom she can be to a little family of her own.

Aside from teaching her the "ABCs" and the essentials like walking and talking, I have to teach my daughter how to be caring and nurturing. I have to teach her how to be a friend, but to have set boundaries. I want her to know the difference between the two and when each is acceptable. I have to teach her to have strength in her moments of weakness and how to be strong for somebody else when they can't find the strength to get moving forward on their own.

I want my daughter growing up to know that being a parent is the easiest hard thing that she will ever have to do because it is. And I want her to always know that it is okay to not know everything all at once. People understand that it's not always easy, and a lot of parents are always willing to give out helpful hints.

I truly believe that getting the chance to raise a little girl is the most precious gift God could have given to a mother. But little boys are miracles, too!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
